Each year we spend around £20M supporting members of the RAF Family.
We 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 partnerships team to develop and secure new opportunities.
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 support the relationship fundraising team, helping to research and identify potential funders.
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 potential.
The role will be one to two days per week and is home-based with the option to work from our head office in central London once offices re-open. Travel and subsistence will only be covered within London zones in the instance of a return to office-based work.
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.
Applications welcomed and interviews will happen on a rolling basis. Please note that due to the high number of applications expected, only candidates shortlisted for interview will be notified.
