Work for us

The RAF Benevolent Fund offers many opportunities to work, develop and thrive in a number of various specialisations with an overall aim to make the lives of both serving and former members of the RAF all the better in their time of need.

Prospect Research and Fundraising Volunteers

Location: Central London / WFH, travel and subsistence offered within the London zones
Term: Min 1- 2 days per week, potential for two volunteers

The Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund is the leading RAF welfare charity spending around £20 million each year supporting serving and veteran RAF and their families.

In 2019 we launched a new Centenary Campaign this year and have ambitious plans to grow fundraising income over the next three years. Volunteers are vital to help us in our vision and we are looking for support for the High Value partnerships team to secure new business.

This is an exciting opportunity to gain prospect research and fundraising skills in a friendly and professional environment. The main purpose of the role is to provide effective support to the High Value Relationship fundraising by working across the team, helping to research, identifying potential funders and supporting the Researcher to maintain data accuracy and consistency.

Ideally you will have excellent IT skills, a high level of accuracy and attention to detail and the ability to analyse and summarise data. You may not have experience of the charity sector and/or fundraising, but a willingness to pitch in on a variety of tasks and an interest in high value partnerships fundraising is essential.

The role will support new business development and relationships across trusts, corporates, events and major donors. You will be supported by your line manager to ensure that you receive the appropriate training and induction for you to fulfil your role to your full capacity.

The role will be home based, with the option to work from our HQ once offices re-open. Travel and subsistence will only be in the instance of a return to office-based work. See the job profile for this role.

To apply please send your CV and a covering letter, outlining why you believe you would excel at this role, to Pete Thompson, Head of HR, email HRservices@rafbf.org.uk. For further information about the role please email sarah.mason@rafbf.org.uk.
