About The Royal British Legion

Careers in Fundraising

Across the country, in every city and on every street, the Legion is there to support our Armed Forces community. As the largest charity of our kind, we have 235,000 members, 60,000 volunteers and a network of partners all helping us give support wherever and whenever it's needed.

With over 200 employees, our Fundraising teams form an important part of this pack. Their passion and collaboration bring in millions of pounds every year. Money that goes on to improve and change the lives of this community.

It's this mission, this scale, this challenge and the values we all live by, that makes the Legion such a fulfilling place to thrive.

As a directorate we commit to ensuring our supporters feel valued, and driven to deliver fundraising that is effective, agile and sector leading. We do this by putting supporters at the heart of everything we do, and by embedding a learning culture in our teams where process improvement and innovation are embraced and celebrated.

So, if you want to give your days meaning. To put your passion into a role with real impact. To support people and be supported yourself. In an inclusive team that faces every challenge together. Whatever your interests and ambitions, we think you’ll find a role here that works for you, with career opportunities right across the UK.

The Role

We are looking for an enthusiastic and commercially minded professional with previous experience of paid or voluntary fundraising and business development, to work in partnership with and support local staff and dedicated front-line volunteers, to raise the profile of the Poppy Appeal and to maximise income generated in this geographical region.

The position is home based, and the successful applicant will be expected to live within the Somerset area.

Highly motivated and with excellent communication, presentation and interpersonal skills, you’ll be experienced in building effective relationships and developing commercial opportunities with key corporate and community stakeholders. You will have proven experience of working closely with volunteers, be able to recruit, develop and motivate them as well as experience in recruiting the support of and developing relationships with local businesses using your influential yet collaborative style.

Knowledge of the Armed Forces would be an advantage, but it is essential that you have a full driving licence with access to a car and that you are adaptable in your approach, with the flexibility to work some evenings and weekends when necessary.

A full driving licence and use of a car is essential for this role.

As an inclusive employer, we welcome conversations on flexible working and any reasonable adjustments that may be required.

Diversity Statement

We believe that the compassion, understanding and service we show each, and every individual customer should be reflected in the way we all support, respect and include every individual who works with us.

It’s because of this that we have strived hard to create a One Legion culture that we can all feel part of and succeed in. It’s why we make sure that you have the opportunities you need to learn and develop. It’s why we’re invested in making RBL a truly inclusive place to work, where everyone can be themselves. It’s why you’re welcome, whoever you might be.

It’s why we welcome applications from people with diverse backgrounds and experiences.
