We have an exciting opportunity for a Charity Fundraiser to join our team based in Walsall to raise donations along the canal towpaths. The role will be a part time ongoing contract, offering £9 per hour with performance related bonus. An immediate start is available for the right candidate!

We are a charity entrusted with protecting and improving 2000 miles of waterways that flow through the most vibrant cities and countryside across England & Wales. The local canals and rivers provide a haven for people and nature, and Canal & River Trust is here so you have a place to escape. A place where you can step off the pavement, onto the towpath and breathe.

Many people don’t realise that our waterways are only here thanks to the efforts of thousands of volunteers and the generous donations we receive from our Friends. To be able to continue to protect our waterways for future generations to come, we need people who share our passion for them. Therefore we are looking for passionate people to come on board as Towpath Fundraisers. Have a look at the details below and hopefully we’ll hear from you soon…

You will work as part of a team to achieve the desired funding in order for the Canal & River Trust to continue further development along the waterways.
