We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with excellent data management and data import skills and the ability to work with technical and end user stakeholders. You will develop a thorough understanding of CRM data structures quickly and support the CRM Manager in introducing new taxonomies, categorisations and moving historical data into new agreed structures.

You will support the CRM Manager, as the day-to-day CRM owner, in the continual development of the system with focus on inbound data received from source. Part of this role will be testing new data imports, developing mapping templates and acting as data integration sign off on fundraising projects.

At times you will need to document new business processes working with colleagues in the wider Fundraising Operations (FROps) team to understand the full end to end data journey. You will quickly become a CRM superuser for Blackbaud CRM and, in due course, Microsoft Dynamics and with your analytical skills you will identify and manage data quality issues.
