Job description

 

Charity Fundraiser
Location: Midlands / Wales
Salary: £18,250.00 - £22,243.00 Per Annum
Benefits: Pension, Life Assurance, 26 days annual leave

Do you love fundraising and want to make a positive impact to our natural world each and every day? Are you a confident communicator with a love for the outdoors? We are looking for charismatic individuals to travel to pre-arranged sites in their local area, set up a fundraising stand, and inspire the public to want to become lifelong members of the RSPB

What’s the role about?

Our Membership Fundraisers are the ambassadors for the RSPB; travelling to a local venue each day in their company van, where they set up an attractive fundraising stand and spend the day actively engaging with members of the public.

Every day our Membership Fundraisers are playing a vital role in our efforts to help give nature the home it deserves. They do this by having engaging conversations with people about our conservation work, educating the public about how they can help wildlife from home, and inspiring people of all ages to become lifelong members of the RSPB through regular giving so that we can use their donations to make a real difference to our natural world!

We are currently recruiting in the following locations:

  • Leicester
  • Oadby
  • Wolverhampton
  • Holyhead

Benefits:

  • Opportunity to join a great team which is making a real difference and inspiring people to save nature;
  • A contract that suits you – choose between 3, 4, and 5 days per week (7.5 hours on-site per day);
  • A set salary, rather than working to commission;
  • A company van, fuel card, and parking expenses;
  • An annual volunteer day either with the RSPB or another charity of your choosing;
  • 34 days’ paid holiday including 8 bank holidays (pro-rata);
  • Full training and comprehensive induction;
  • Secondment opportunities as well as career progression.

What we need from you:

You don’t need to know much about birds, nor do you need to know much about conservation, as we run a thorough induction program and offer fantastic training and ongoing support.

Essential skills, knowledge and experience that we are looking for include:

  • Enthusiasm and passion for saving nature;
  • Enjoy working outdoors - solo as well as part of a team;
  • A good story-teller and a confident communicator;
  • A resilience to rejection;
  • Experience in a customer-facing role;
  • Comfortable asking people for monthly donations;
  • A full, manual driving licence;
  • Access to the Microsoft Office suite at home; and
  • Willing to work 3 out of 4 weekends and bank holidays.
  • Fundraising/sales experience

Closing date: 23:59, 06 February 2022
We run a monthly induction for all new Membership Fundraisers around the UK.
We are currently recruiting new starters for a start date of 7th March 2022, as well as subsequent months.

We look forward to hearing from you!
