About us

Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it.


About the role

This is an exciting new position in our ambitious and award-winning fundraising team, committed to finding innovative ways to build Crisis’ profile and support across the UK


In this role, you will be responsible for contributing to income growth across the West Midlands, and you will be involved in the development of networks and activity to generate funds from communities, individuals, local trusts, companies and volunteer fundraising groups, whilst ensuring an excellent supporter experience.


About you

To be successful in this role you will have previous experience of using your excellent communication skills to build a wide range of successful relationships and deliver first-rate supporter or customer care, ideally including having worked with volunteers.


You will be comfortable working remotely, often away from other fundraising colleagues, and will need to demonstrate your ability to use your own initiative to research and identify opportunities and deliver projects or events.


And, you’ll be highly motivated to help achieve the change needed to end homelessness altogether.



As a member of the team you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including:


  • Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy

  • Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%

  • 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days


Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.
