Required Role

Fundraising & Campaigning

Key responsibilities

You will have full rein to develop local supporters whether they be individuals, groups or local companies – creating awareness of the charity and the impact it is making in the lives of the children, therefore you will be on hand to introduce the charity. Throughout the project, you will be working with the team at hand to assist you in your endeavours'. The project will involve initially researching potential opportunities and events and creating a list of contacts/supporters who should be presented to the Manager. Once this has been agreed, you will then begin to contact the potential supporters, liaising closely with the Manager throughout the project. This will give you hand-on experience with project management, as well as build your confidence.
