Student And Events Fundrasing Officer Jobs Vacancy at Street Doctors Ltd Jobs Details:
Want to work in a small friendly team supporting a brilliant and motivated group of young volunteer medics across the UK? StreetDoctors is a charity and network of medical volunteers who deliver training courses to young people at risk of violence so they know what to do if they are on the scene of a medical emergency. The impact and reach of our work is astonishing. In this year alone our 18 teams of active volunteers have delivered training to over 2500 young people and a new programme has worked with some of the young people at risk of involvement in street crime to encourage them to consider a health related career.
We also have an increasing number of case studies where young people have acted to help someone in a medical emergency following our training. Each of the volunteer teams also pledges to raise money to fund their work. The growing number of Streetdoctor teams means we are now looking for someone to provide them with fundraising support, guidance and encouragement and also to come up with, and manage, an exciting new national event all the groups can take part in. The kinds of things you might find yourselves doing in this role are: Developing a central fundraising resource bank and ‘how to’ guides Sharing the successes of individual teams to raise the game across all teams Support volunteers in raising funds either through events or grant making trusts Making sure volunteers understand about best practice in fundraising (including the Fundraising Regulator) Playing a part in the annual Streetdoctors’ training conference Presenting and training at the regular volunteer Fundraising and Comms ‘taskforce’ group meetings.
This is such an exciting time of development and growth for Streetdoctors with plans afoot to widen our voluntary groups out to students in other health care professions. We also want to develop a volunteer alumni programme (a really interesting project for you to be involved with from the start). You will have the chance to support the CEO with other areas of fundraising such as corporate. This job gives you the opportunity to be in at the beginning and grow your own career with the possibility of a full time role in the future.
What skills and experience are we looking for? First of all, you will need to have some fundraising experience so that we know you understand the basic principles. Given the role we would expect this to have involved working with volunteer groups for example in community fundraising or perhaps charity of the year partnerships. In particular, if you already have experience of working with student fundraising groups that would be great - perhaps you have been part of your Uni fundraising campaign?
As we are a small team you will need to be self sufficient – happy doing your own admin and research and confident with things like databases and spreadsheets. Our groups are based all round the country so although much of the communication with groups will online or phone there will be times when face to face visits are best so you will need some flexibility to travel. (If you’re lucky you might be able to plan that for a Monday or Friday if you want to tie it in with a weekend away!) As this is a part time post at the moment we are happy to be flexible to fit around our needs and those of whoever gets the job. For example days/hours can be flexible and it may be possible to work different hours in term/holiday times.
