Job Description - EXPIRED

The RNLI has a network of local fundraising branches organising a wide range of activities and events which last year raised £14 million to save lives at sea. Each branch and guild is supported by a Community Fundraising Manager although the range and frequency of fundraising events is determined by the branch members themselves.

Becoming part of your local fundraising branch could offer you an opportunity to improve your CV, meet new people or learn new skills. Some of our branch members have been volunteering for many years, some just join us for a few months - whatever their commitments allow.

We are currently looking for a motivated person to join our local fundraising branch at Sherborne in the role of Branch Secretary.

As the primary point of contact between the Branch and the Fundraising & Communications office you will play a key role in ensuring effective communication by distributing information to branch members, taking notes at meetings and placing printing and materials orders. You will be highly organised and efficient, used to meeting deadlines and have an enthusiasm for assisting at fundraising events and activities.

Whether you have experience in administration or secretarial work or you want to develop such skills this could be a role for you.

This is a great opportunity to really make a difference by raising vital funds for our volunteer crew members and lifeguards.

This is a volunteer opportunity within the RNLI. RNLI volunteers are people who, unpaid and of their own free will, contribute their time, energy and skills to support the purposes of the RNLI. RNLI volunteers may perform a variety of tasks and duties, under direction and guidance, using their skills, knowledge and time to help the RNLI best achieve its objectives.

We respect and honour our volunteers by building trust and understanding. Such a partnership is not intended to be a legally binding contract or to have mutuality of obligation, but instead express a voluntary two-way commitment where everyone gains satisfaction from being part of our organisation.
