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 members themselves.

Getting involved with these activities could offer you an opportunity to improve your CV, meet new people, learn new skills or just have fun with fundraising in your community. 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 Volunteer Events Coordinator who will assist the Preston Branch with their fundraising initiatives.

This is a fantastic opportunity to utilise your networking skills within the community and to assist the branch to raise their profile establishing contacts and networking opportunities within the local community. In this role, you will support the Branch to ensure the smooth running of events including venue booking and associated tasks. Any new innovative fundraising ideas you may have will be welcomed by the Branch.

This exciting and varied role will suit someone who has a flair for identifying fundraising opportunities and who thrives as working as part of a team but, can also work independently. If you are outgoing and up for a challenge and already have, or would like to develop, events planning experience please get in touch - we would love to hear from you. You will receive all of the training required to enable you to carry out the role upon commencement.

This is a fantastic opportunity to really make a difference and help raise funds for this lifesaving charity whilst also allowing you to learn new skills and enhancing your CV; if you are interested you can apply online at

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.

TPP is committed to equal opportunities and actively encourages applications from all sectors of the community. We shortlist based on competencies and not on race, religion, sex, physical or mental disability, or age.
