Events and community fundraising assistant

We are looking to recruit a self-motivated, organised and enthusiastic person to join our events and community fundraising team.

Location: London, EC1V  
Salary: £22,550 per annum  
Closing date: 9.00am on 23 September 2019 
Interview date: w/c 30 September 2019 

One person in five in the UK is affected by lung disease. Millions more are at risk. The British Lung Foundation (BLF) is here for every one of them. We support people affected by lung disease, so that no one has to face it alone. We promote greater understanding of lung disease and campaign for change in the nation’s lung health. We fund vital research so that new treatments and cures can help to save lives.

If you are looking to start your fundraising career in events and community fundraising, this is the perfect first step for you. You’ll be an integral part of our team, will learn key processes, grow to understand good fundraising practice, and will have first class supporter care skills by the end of your time with us.

We are looking for a people-person who has great written and verbal communication skills. You should also be highly organised and able to balance a busy workload with a keen eye for detail.

Not only are we the only UK charity looking after the nation’s lungs but also a fantastic employer. We have recently been nationally recognised as a fantastic place to work after earning a place at no.45 in the Sunday Times best 100 not for profit organisations. This is a great achievement as only the organisations with the highest level of employee engagements qualify for the list.

As well as a competitive salary you can enjoy a range of benefits including our cycle to-work scheme, option to work flexibly (including working from home, compressed hours and flexi-time), interest-free annual season travelcard loan, 30 days annual leave plus bank holidays (pro-rata for part-time employees), pension scheme and much more.

This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to an organisation committed to supporting everyone whose life is changed by lung disease.
