Job description

Are you keen to develop a career in fundraising?  Do you want to develop your skills and experience in a range of fundraising activities? It can be tough to get a good start in charity fundraising when employers want candidates who already have all the knowledge. But we’re looking for just that, someone who is a great communicator and shows all the signs of being a successful fundraiser, and just needs to start doing it.


As a charity, we have been fortunate to have increased our fundraising activity and income this year. We are looking forward to continuing to adapt to the new fundraising landscape in 2021 and you can be a key part of this.


We are looking for someone who shares our values and can help us achieve our vision through generating donations and funding income. You will help us deliver our fundraising strategy, focusing on the UK Food Plan (the charity's new and ambitious plan to transform vegetarian options in targeted contexts). We will support you in developing your skills through training, networking and building experience in delivering fundraising activities.


If you embrace the vegetarian lifestyle and want to use your strong interpersonal skills and enthusiasm to help us deliver a sustainable funding strategy, then this role might just be for you. This is a trainee role, and the successful applicant will commit to undertaking a training programme in order to progress to Fundraising Officer level.

The closing date for applications is 9:00am Monday 1st February 2021.
