Join us in this pivotal role as Celebrity Manager, where you will develop Shelter's celebrity engagement programme through establishing and developing the charity's network of celebrity supporters, recruiting celebrities to support specific charity activities and campaigns, and identifying proactive opportunities for growth in this area. The right candidate will bring outstanding interpersonal skills and a proven track record of relationship management with agents, artists and celebrities.
This is an incredibly exciting time for Shelter, as the entire organisation is rallying behind our ambitious strategy to end the housing emergency. As we embark upon this new strategy, this key position will cut across all of our campaigning and fundraising work and allow Shelter to better use celebrity voices to help us campaign for change and raise money for our vital support services.
About the role
Join us, and you could soon be using your impressive relationship management expertise to develop a celebrity engagement programme for the charity. You will recruit celebrities to support specific Shelter activities and campaigns and cultivate partnerships with media outlets, event organisers and agencies to support and maximise Shelter's fundraising and campaigns activities. You will also develop and maintain a contact programme with existing warm agents and celebrities, recruit new celebrity supporters for the charity and use social media channels to engage with celebrities and enable them to show their support. Supporting on the development of propositions for Shelter fundraising and campaigns activity is also a key aspect of the role.
You will need to possess proven experience of successful relationship management with agents, artists and celebrities in a campaigning, fundraising, PR and media or entertainment environment. Influential, results-driven and commercially aware, you will also have excellent networking skills with the ability to negotiate effectively and persuasively with a wide range of internal and external contacts (agents, celebrities, journalists and Shelter staff). Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written, are also essential, as is a collaborative, proactive and flexible approach to your work.
We offer a wide range of benefits, including 30 days of annual leave (pro rata), enhanced family friendly policies, pension and interest free travel loans. Our employees also have access to a tenancy deposit loan, payroll giving, cycle to work scheme and an employee assistance programme.
Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help. We're here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.
