Senior Communications and Fundraising Officer

UKLGIG, the leading UK charity dedicated to providing support to vulnerable LGBTQI+ people who are seeking asylum in the UK, is recruiting for a new and exciting role as part of its growing team.

UKLGIG has been supporting LGBTQI+ people through the asylum and immigration system and campaigning for their rights since 1993. We are now rebranding and growing our income and looking for a proactive and creative self-starter experienced in a variety of communications disciplines to launch our new identity, manage our communications and increase our fundraising from individuals.

This is a unique opportunity to apply your skills in communications to build awareness of a small but impactful organisation and the challenges facing LGBTQI+ people in need of refugee protection. Working closely with the Executive Director and Trustees, you will develop and deliver impactful strategies to help reach policy/campaigning outcomes and ensure LGBTQI+ people around the country are aware of UKLGIG’s services available to them. You will also build capacity among our clients and former clients to speak to the media and policy-makers. You will be supported to develop your skills in fundraising and will apply your communications skills to individual giving campaigns.

You will:

  • Develop and deliver an effective communications strategy.
  • Launch and manage UKLGIG’s new brand identity.
  • Set up and maintain a new website.
  • Manage UKLGIG’s presence on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media platforms.
  • Proactively manage engagement with the media.
  • Assist with public campaigning to further our policy objectives.
  • Train and support clients and former clients to do media interviews and speak to policy-makers.
  • Conduct individual giving campaigns.
  • Make grant applications to small trusts and foundations and report back to funders accordingly.

UKLGIG is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion, and we welcome applications from all sections of the community. We will interview all applicants with disabilities who meet the essential criteria for this vacancy.

Owing to the nature of the work with vulnerable adults, the successful applicant will be required to undergo a basic DBS check and to disclose all non-protected criminal records at the point of conditional job offer.
