Why join Launch Housing

Our mission is to end homelessness. We aim to get people housed, keep them housed, and be an influential voice on ending homelessness. We are a secular, independent provider of choice for clients and the go-to organisation on homelessness for government, media, philanthropy, private donors and the community.

Our people are the backbone of our organisation and supporting their wellbeing and professional development is critical to our ability to help our clients and the community. We value lived experience and diversity in our staff, and actively work to ensure everyone is able to make their career with Launch Housing fulfilling.

Why this role matters

​Supporter numbers, fundraising income, corporate partnerships and philanthropy have grown significantly over the last two years as our brand awareness and positioning continues to solidify and strengthen.

​Launch Housing is now investing in a new CRM system over the next 6-8 months. This is an exciting and major piece of work that will consume a significant portion of our Fundraising & CRM Manager's time.

To ensure we can continue our growth whilst implementing our CRM we are hiring a Senior Fundraising Specialist in a contract role to make a genuine impact with our Individual Giving strategy. Specifically, we are looking for someone who can take our two main Appeals and Regular Giving to the next level.

We are currently seeking a skilled & passionate individual who can work both autonomously and within a wider team, to hit the ground running and have both fun and impact with our Individual Giving program.

It is expected that the successful candidate will:

  • Accelerate the growth of our key Sponsor-a-Room program, increasing the number of regular givers, growing revenue and continue to build a new sustainable source of unrestricted funds for Launch Housing.
  • Lead on our multi-channel Festive and Tax Appeals with confidence working in both direct mail and online fundraising tactics, working closely with the wider Campaigns & Engagement team and specifically with our Chief Storyteller and Digital Marketing Specialist.
