Membership is one of the flagship Individual Giving products at Diabetes UK. We have around 80,000 amazing members who are changing the future of diabetes by helping to fund our work, including research that we hope will one day lead to a cure. In return, we provide the latest information on diabetes from our team of specialist nurses, dietitians and other experts via our exclusive membership magazine, Balance, and online communications channels.
We have seen membership move from strength to strength over the last few years, and we believe that there is potential for us to continue growing and developing the product. You will help us achieve this by managing and improving the day-to-day membership experience; driving retention via engaging campaigns and improving processes to ensure they are all user-focussed.

You will lead on day-to-day supplier management, ensuring retention and engagement campaigns are executed efficiently, on-brand and within budget. Effective stewardship is very important to the membership programme so it’s essential that you have an eye for good design, can recognise good copywriting, and confidently brief an agency.
You will work with internal teams to ensure data integrity, and you will be the membership champion for the replacement CRM project. You will not have line management responsibility, but you will spend time supervising the work of the membership executive to make sure data is handled compliantly, and that everything we do is user-focussed.

About the Company
For nearly 5 million people with diabetes in the UK, there’s no day off. At Diabetes UK, we fight day in, day out for better care, treatment and support. We won’t stop until diabetes can do no harm.
With more people than ever living with diabetes and millions more at risk of developing type 2, our work has never been more needed. We make sure they get the care and support needed to live well with diabetes and avoid devastating complications.
We fund critical research, which has led to life-changing discoveries – like the first insulin pen and programmes to put type 2 diabetes into remission. Now, we want to do this for everyone and find a cure.
We can’t do any of this without you. Our staff are passionate and determined about helping everyone affected by diabetes. For over 85 years, they’ve been behind vital policy changes, as well as new treatments and technologies to make living with diabetes easier every day.
But there’s more to do. And you can be part of it.
We’re a really diverse bunch and we recognise and respect your value as an individual. As well as helping people with diabetes, you’ll be part of one of the top 30 Best UK Charities to Work For, and one of the top 75 Best Large Companies in London.
We’re committed to protecting and promoting the welfare of children and adults at risk, and we need our staff and volunteers to support this.
