Job title:

Field Sales Executive – Fundraiser


Charity Link

Job description

We’re looking for people with a great personality, a positive attitude and a strong work ethic.

About Us

We are an award-winning Charity fundraising agency with nearly 30 years’ experience, delivering fundraising and awareness campaigns for some of the UK’s most well-known charities such as Dogs Trust, Guide Dogs and Breast Cancer Now. Our passion for fundraising continues to grow and we raise over £20m for our charity partners each year.

The Private Site Fundraising Role

Our Private Site fundraisers are employed by Charity Link on permanent contracts, fulltime or part-time and enjoy a base rate, meaning you’ll always know a minimum income with plenty of potential to earn more.

This role really does make a difference to people’s lives!

You’ll be the public face of our charity partners with a mission to interact with the public and get their support in the form of regular monthly direct debit donations or lottery sign ups.

Private Site fundraising takes place at a vast array of shows, events, superstores and smaller stores, town centres, shopping centres and even train stations. These venues are pre-booked for you by our in-house venues team, whose focus is to give you the very best chance of securing as many donors as possible during your shift.

The working day itself will vary according to the venues you work and you should aim to be there when footfall is at its maximum. That means you’ll need to be flexible as to what hours you work, the evening being a particularly good time to find potential donors.

Charity-branded clothing and equipment (stands, pull-ups, tables, gazebos etc…) are provided as well as an electric tablet to sign up donors.

Life as a charity fundraiser is an exciting one, full of challenges and even more rewards. No two days are the same and you’ll meet and connect with some of the best kinds of people.

If you’re confident, optimistic, resilient and love talking to people, this could be your calling!

What happens next

The hiring process has the following steps:

  • CV application review – we aim to review your application as quickly as possible
  • Let’s talk – one of our team will contact you to discuss your experience and the role
  • Virtual Interview – 1 hour video interview with one of our recruiters
  • Fundraiser Experience – 1 hour in the field walking alongside an experienced door to door fundraiser so you can experience first-hand what the job entails and demonstrate an ability to open a conversation with a member of the public

Our commitment

As our fundraisers engage with the public daily, we need to ensure we recruit the best people with the right skills, experience and background to support our ambitions. Charity Link is an equal opportunities employer, we welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
