Volunteering with our Community Fundraising team is a great chance to develop your administration and supporter relations skills whilst getting experience in the charity fundraising sector.

About the role

We're looking for a volunteer to support our Community Fundraising Team to maintain a database of supporters who have approached Amnesty to raise money through community activities. This could be anything from someone who is taking part in a sponsored run or who wants to hold an AmnesTea for us. The role is for three days a week, for at least three months. There is also the opportunity to come to our larger participation events, such as the London Marathon, to support our Team Amnesty runners / cyclists.

Volunteers will get the chance to work closely on a project. There are several projects that we have coming up in the next few months including: assembling a team to take part in the London Marathon, building a relationship with RAG societies across the country and pulling together a bespoke trek. You will work with the team to help make these projects a success.

It's a great role to gain experience dealing with supporters as well as picking up events experience. Previous volunteers have gone on to work in the charity sector after helping our Community Fundraising staff deliver our programme of Fundraising activities.

If you feel you have:

  • A genuine interest in charity fundraising
  • Database or data entry experience.
  • Excellent working knowledge of Microsoft Word and Excel.
  • High standard of written and spoken English.
  • Experience communicating with a variety of stakeholders in a professional capacity via email and telephone
  • Administrative experience with a high standard of accuracy
  • Ability to work under pressure and meet regular deadlines
