Fun, Flexible, Face-to-Face and Fulfilling and your chance to help change the lives of children for good

At World Vision, we truly understand the enormous impact our Fundraisers make to our organisation. After all, these are the people that help create relationships by recruiting donors and this in turn helps change children’s lives for the better. As the world’s largest international children’s charity, we bring real hope to millions of children in the world’s hardest places and our aim is simple – to keep every child free from fear. We have also been voted one of the ‘Top 100 Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For’ in 2014 and 2015.

We are looking for a number of Fundraisers to join our Face-to-Face fundraising team, initially on a fixed term contract until 30th September 2016. While experience would be beneficial, it’s not essential. More importantly, we are looking for target-driven, enthusiastic people with a generosity of spirit and excellent verbal and face-to-face communication skills. We need people who are fantastic storytellers and who are able to captivate people’s interest, sign up donors and demonstrate how their support can make a true difference to the lives of the world’s poorest children.

All applicants must be willing to work within a Christian framework and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.

To be considered for one of our Fundraiser positions, you could be:

 • An experienced Fundraiser looking for your next role.

• A university graduate looking for a full or part-time position.

• A job-seeker looking to take your first step onto the charity career ladder.

• Looking for flexible working hours to fit in with your home life.

• Someone with retail or sales experience looking to transfer your skills and become a Charity Fundraiser.

We will equip you with full training to ensure that you can be the best that you can be within this fast-paced, dynamic environment. There is also the opportunity to build a long-term career with us. For many, a fundraising job with World Vision can prove to be the ideal springboard into a career in charity fundraising.  

You will predominantly operate from venues such as Shopping Malls, Festivals, Retail Exhibitions and Town Centres where you will actively promote child sponsorship and take new donors on the World Vision journey.

Full- time staff will be required to work a shift pattern, which may include some weekends.

However, we also have some part time evening & weekend working opportunities for people looking for flexible working hours - just let us know in your cover letter if this is something you are interested in.

This is your chance to do something truly worthwhile within a Christian charity. It’s a role where a smile and a positive approach can speak a thousand words. If you believe you have the qualities required to be a passionate and committed fundraiser, why not come and join our Face-to-Face Fundraising team?

In addition to the salary offered, you can expect a good range of benefits including pension, subsidised gym membership and generous holiday entitlement.
