Database Manager

Location: London

Job Description

Join our team to make a difference! 

We’re a growing charity looking for a Database Manager to join our team and manage our supporter and beneficiary CRM database. 

This role is not simply about the management and administration of a fundraising or donor CRM database. You will help our finance, fundraising, communications and operations teams be more effective and efficient, translating data into meaningful insight which can aid decisions and provide our supporters and beneficiaries with the best-possible experience.

This means you’ve managed a database independently, ideally in a charitable organisation, or are an experienced database team member ready to step into a management role. 

You will be responsible for line managing a Database Administration Assistant and will report directly to the Head of Finance. You’ll also be the ‘go to’ person for database queries, reporting and analytics and will be passionate about improving systems and processes. 

Could this be your next role?

  • You will have experience of the management of a CRM system, using different database tools and techniques, ideally in the charity sector. 
  • You will have advanced excel skills and be comfortable in the use of SQL for database administration and analysis. 
  • You will be proficient in analysing and reporting on large data sets, ensuring data integrity and accuracy at all times.
  • You will have detailed understanding of data segmentation and selection for campaigns and mass communications.
  • You have proven experience of building positive relationships with managers and colleagues across an organisation.
  • You are methodical and able to manage the day to day demands of running a CRM system with the longer-term and more proactive tasks and projects

We are looking to appoint to this position as quickly as possible, so please submit your application as soon as possible and we will be assessing applications on receipt. To apply, please submit your CV and a covering letter stating why you think you are suitable for this role to our HR Manager Carole Buckton

Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.

Work experience
The Sick Children's Trust often provides work experience opportunities for individuals looking to gain experience in the charity sector, perhaps after study or a change in career. We host placement students from anything from one week to several months, and provide hands-on experience across different charity functions. For example, we have previously partnered with universities to host students on funded placements during their summer breaks. 

All our opportunities are bespoke and developed in discussion with the university, college or individual. We do not pay placement or work experience students, but we do contribute to travel and lunch expenses. For more information, please email  

My experience

Caroline Land volunteered with our Special Events team for three months: “Working for The Sick Children's Trust was such a great experience. I'm keen to carve a career in events so this voluntary role gave me a great insight into the process of event planning from start to finish. 

“I worked on the charity's Supper Club event and was fully involved in its development - meeting with the venue, ironing out details, organising schedules and seeing everything come together. Being present on the night of the Supper Club was an honour and it was wonderful to see first-hand how my hard work had helped the charity host such a successful fundraising event.

“The team in head office were very welcoming and made my time at The Sick Children's Trust really enjoyable. Volunteering at the charity helped to broaden my experience within the events arena and I am proud that my work in the Special Events team will go some way towards supporting many more families with seriously ill children.”
