We do that in a broad number of areas, encompassing social justice, well-being, the environment and the economy.

We are looking for an Events and Supporters Officer to join our team. This is a new role that will support the design and implementation of a new supporter and events programme for NEF, working across our Communications and Fundraising teams. We are keen to engage with and influence our audiences differently and grow our supporter base, as well as the income generated through events and individual giving.
We’re looking for someone with passion and an appetite to learn - you don’t necessarily need years of experience to be great at this job and we are committed to supporting the right person to grow and develop into this role.
The first half of the role relates to event design, management and delivery. This will range from roundtables, conferences, trainings and seminars to partnership events with other organisations, as well as more bespoke and hopefully fun events for our supporters and the wider public. The second half of the role relates to supporting supporters through engaging and creative communications, digital and print content and tailored events. This will also involve thinking through and improving supporter journeys with a view to increase donations or have more people sign up for regular giving.
This job is a chance to develop communications, fundraising and project management skills in a supportive environment while engaging with cutting-edge thinking on environmental, social and economic issues and movement building for systemic change.
