The RAF Association is looking for proactive and organised individuals to be Fundraising Team Leaders. We are currently looking for volunteers across 37 locations of the UK.
The role is an exciting one, with Fundraising Team Leaders doing anything from organising a street collection, in collaboration with Association staff, making contacts and setting up their own premises collections in supermarkets or shops, where they will lead a small team, to assisting with the recruitment of other fundraising volunteers that will help our fundraising collections.
With the opportunity to make this role your own and to get out of it as much you would like, volunteers will benefit from experience in organising an event, networking and building relationships and from managing and supporting a team.
No experience is required as full training will be given, although a positive approach to getting things done and good organisation skills are required for the role.
Who are we looking for?
Fundraising Team Leaders need to be:
- Comfortable in social environments
- Approachable, cheerful, friendly and a strong communicator
- Enthusiastic and able to motivate and lead others
- A good problem solver and able to respond calmly and sensibly to last minute changes or unplanned situations
- Highly organised
In addition Fundraising Team Leaders will need to:
- Have access to a car and be prepared to use it for RAF Association volunteer work
- Be able to stand for long periods of time or to arrange seating if necessary
Expenses will be paid to cover out of pocket expenses in line with RAF Association policy and uniform t-shirts, sashes or tabards will be provided.
Volunteers should be 18 years of age or over.
About The Royal Air Forces Association
The Royal Air Forces Association (or RAF Association), is a member-led, registered welfare charity that provides welfare support to Serving and Ex-Serving RAF personnel and their families. Receiving no government contributions, our work is completely funded by the generosity of our members, donors and supporters and through vital donations from the public to the Wings Appeal. A significant proportion of our work is undertaken by those who volunteer for the charity.
Volunteers provide visits to members of the RAF family to help combat loneliness, provide information on our Wings Breaks Hotels or to help them make financial applications in times of hardship. Volunteers help us fundraise by setting up collections, attending events and raising our profile. Volunteers edit sound effects into stories for young children, read by their parents who are away on deployment and they support us in many tasks throughout our branch network across the world.
Our locations are:
Wales, Midlands and South West
South East and Eastern Area
Scotland and NI
Burton on Trent
