Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) are an independent and impartial international humanitarian aid charity that exists to save lives by providing medical aid where it is needed most – in armed conflicts, epidemics, famines and natural disasters. All these situations call for a rapid response with specialised medical and logistical help. They also run longer-term projects, tackling health crises and supporting people where the need is greatest and currently have projects running in over 60 countries.
They need great communicators to come on board and help them to raise the vital funds they need to continue this amazing work by getting out and engaging with members of the public about the causes they support.

"I started my career as a Face to Face fundraiser, I took to it quickly even though I had no experience. I quickly became a Team Leader where I was given a team to coach and support. My pay increased and my interest in a career in fundraising grew. My network of contacts quickly grew and I heard of a marketing and communications role at Oxfam. I applied and got the job. I oversaw a large budget and managed a number of national fundraising campaigns including TV appeal for the charity. If I didn't jump at the chance to fundraise, I wouldn't be where I am now. The fundraising network is tightly linked, progression is inevitable. If you genuinely want to make a difference to vulnerable people then become a Fundraiser You don't know where it will take it but it will push you further towards your goal."
