If you have an interest in fundraising and would like to develop your fundraising experience within inspiring surroundings then we have the right volunteer placement for you!
Who are we?
West Dean College of Arts & Conservation is an internationally recognised College. It is located on the 6,400 acre West Dean Estate in beautiful West Sussex countryside near Chichester, specialising in creative and applied arts. As well as being a respected educational institution, the historic house holds a stunning collection and archive and the glorious grounds and gardens are open to the public. We also host year round events and exhibitions, making West Dean a truly unique place to volunteer.
What will I be doing?
This volunteer placement will be for three months and will cover a wide variety of associated fundraising administrational duties such as updating our fundraising database, assisting with mail outs and undertaking fundraising research. Being part of a team that covers a broad range of fundraising there is the opportunity to get involved in any particular area that might be of interest to you.
This particular role will be a great opportunity to learn some on-the -job experience of working as part of a busy fundraising department, enhancing your fundraising knowledge as well as enjoying being part of a close knit and friendly team working within beautiful surroundings.
What do you need from me?
Volunteering is a worthwhile way to give your time in a flexible way that suits your lifestyle and a great way to meet people and build networks of people with similar interests. We ideally need you to be able to volunteer around one day a week (hours flexible) for a three month period.
The volunteer placement will suit…
Someone with an eye for detail, has an interest in fundraising, gets a kick out of communicating and has good knowledge of IT (in particular excel and updating/working on databases).
