Thompson & Terry Recruitment are working with a UK registered global development charity with committed teams across the globe, who inspire young people to volunteer overseas. They are looking to recruit a passionate, value driven and engaging Fundraising Co-ordinator to support and engage students to fundraise.
As Fundraising Co-ordinator, the focus of your job will be to work closely with UK students to support them to fundraise before their overseas volunteering trip, engage with the alumni from past trips and continue to build a strong community of students who want to make a difference globally.
A big part of the role will be remote/office based but it will also involve travelling to universities, attending freshers’ fairs and communicating with students across the country both as groups and on a 1-1 basis.
As their charity’s sole focus is international development, it is essential that the successful candidate has a passion for making a difference to communities globally and is really excited by the opportunity to make a difference.
In addition to the day-to-day duties required, the Fundraising Co-ordinator will also be responsible for posting on social media, responding to student emails and being a point of contact for these students. A smaller part of the role is general administration and reporting, so excel will definitely become your friend!
This vacancy could be well suited to a recent graduate, who has a genuine passion for inspiring young people to volunteer overseas but is equally ambitious to build a genuine career. One of the current heads of department actually joined at this level just 5 years ago.
Thompson & Terry Recruitment are working with a purposeful business and well connected UK registered charity who work across the globe, supported by young volunteers from the UK to provide support to low-income communities, schools and health centres overseas.
Our client is completely socially driven and the whole team lives by a set of strong core values so it is important the successful candidate aligns completely with this.
Alongside an incredibly rewarding job, the successful candidate will enjoy strong training with genuine career progression opportunities, along with the opportunity to volunteer overseas.
Experience of personally fundraising and a real passion to inspire others to do the same is a must
The confidence to build relationships as part of the role is about building a loyal and passionate community
A strong and engaging communicator at all levels with a strong level of English (both written and verbal)
Previous experience of working/travelling within overseas communities or experience in international development work would definitely be an advantage
The ability to manage your own diary and be flexible to adapt and adjust to situations due to time differences between overseas hubs but also evening event requirements (freshers fairs as an example)
Due to the nature of the role, willingness to regularly travel to universities across the UK is also essential
