What we're looking for
We need an enthusiastic and target driven individual to help us grow our pin badge scheme in Northern Ireland raising vital funds to support our local work in the community. The pin badge scheme is our core source of community fundraising income and helps to fund local projects such as habitat management on our reserves and our work with schools and colleges through our Youth and Education team. Realistically, the more money raised through Community Fundraising, the more work we can do here in Northern Ireland! We need someone with a positive attitude and excellent written and verbal communication skills who feels comfortable working alone in researching potential new host sites for our pin badge boxes. You will then be tasked with contacting these potential new sites with the view to place a pin badge box there after which you will ensure that the relevant documentation is sent out to the host site in accordance with current Institute of Fundraising guidelines and collate the information in a spreadsheet. You will have weekly meetings with the Community Fundraising Officer who, along with one other member of staff, will be on hand to provide the training you need and to support you throughout your placement.
