British Red Cross Indoor Fundraising Role
International development and humanitarian aid charity British Red Cross are looking to grow their team of promotional/charity sales staff. We're looking for people who want flexible working hours to join the established in-house promotional team in the East Midlands.
In the role, you'll be going to indoor locations such as shopping centres, supermarkets and railway stations. Your aim is to speak to members of the public on behalf of the charity, raising the charities profile and recruiting new supporters through a direct debit donation.
We can offer flexible FULL TIME or PART TIME hours, on both weekdays and weekends.
- Starting rate of pay of £9p/h
- Opportunity to increase the rate of pay to £10.50p/h
- Mileage paid at 45p per mile
- Weekly pay
- Holiday pay
- Full and ongoing training and support
You'll be working within the wider East Midlands area. Where possible, sites will be near to your location.
We're looking for creative, passionate individuals who are confident storytellers. Private Site fundraisers have excellent verbal and face to face communication skills and are confident interacting with and engaging in conversations with members of the public.
The role is ideal for someone who is looking for flexible work in a face-to-face role. Previous sales or customer service experience is desirable but not necessary.
- Must have full drivers license
- Must have access to a car
- Must be able to get business insurance
"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 different to vulnerable people then become a fundraiser."
