Job description
Events Fundraising Officer (12026)

In the Challenge and Virtual Event team we support those taking on a Challenge activity for Barnardo's, through delivering owned events, as well as third party challenges, from running marathons to walking around the your local park. We support our participants with a supporter journey designed to give them everything they need to get the absolute most out of their challenge.

We are looking for someone with a passion for events and a thirst for learning to help us deliver our Do you Own Fundraising programme, our third-party events calendar including the TCS London Marathon, and Great North Run as well as helping to implement and shape our bespoke and owned portfolio of virtual and partnered events. You'll have experience in marketing, fundraising, stewarding supporters and event delivery as well as being able to manage multiple activities and deadlines.

We are an ambitious team with ambitious targets over the next 3 years, as we understand what mass participation events look like post COVID 19. We are innovative, and audience led, making sure insight guides our decisions and portfolio over the coming years.

We know as we come out of the pandemic there will be an increased pressure on our children's services. Fundraising therefore is extremely important in making sure we are there for the vulnerable children, young people, parents and carers that need our help the most.

So if you've got a passion for events, innovation and making a difference we would love to hear from you.

Barnardo's offers a hybrid working model covered under our `Work from Anywhere' Framework, therefore vacancies advertised with this as an opportunity are open for applicants to either work from home or any location within the UK, including Barnardo's Hub/Office that is a reasonable distance from your home address.


Barnardo's believe in creating equality of opportunity in the workplace and supporting people to manage their work-life balance; we are therefore open to offering flexible working arrangements.
