“Changing the world isn’t easy. But it can be a lot of fun.”
HOME Fundraising is a fundraising company with an impressive list of clients including Cancer Research UK, Oxfam, Macmillan Cancer Support, Save The Children, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Barnado’s, St Mungo’s and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
The company works with charities that help to change the world in fields as diverse as poverty, homelessness, environmental issues and health matters.
Home has grown to become the biggest ethically-managed door-to-door fundraising company in Europe, employing over 1200 people in England and Scotland to inspire members of the public to become regular donors.
But, are there any job opportunities for students and graduates with Home Fundraising?
Yes, there certainly are!
If you have the honest, open, personable qualities that Home Fundraising is looking for, then students and graduates would fit right in to the company. One of the great things about working with Home is that the hours are in the late afternoon/mid-evening and can be flexible enough to fit in around other life commitments such as studying for a degree.
Another boon with fundraising is that you are helping out great causes while still managing to benefit from decent money and a rewarding experience for yourself. You will get the chance to gain essential negotiation and leadership skills and acquire fascinating charity knowledge.
Home fundraisers call on people door to door to ask them to donate – but there is no hard selling involved. Home believes in an approach to fundraising which is informed, open and professional. Full on-going training is given to help you to become the best fundraisers you can be. No cheesy dialogue, no guilt trips. You’ll be trained to inspire, not “sell”.
HOME’s success rests on getting settled and mature donors on board who are likely to become passionate about the charity you represent and stay with it for a significant amount of time.
The company employs fundraisers on a guaranteed hourly rate with performance related, uncapped bonuses in addition, rather than on a “commission-only” basis. That means that you can be secure in the knowledge of how much your basic pay will be, but you could be earning much, much more if you are successful as a fundraiser. Good fundraisers can be notching up the equivalent of a £25,000 annual salary within their first month. Brilliant fundraisers for Home can earn in excess of £40,000 a year if they manage to raise enough money for their clients’ good causes.
Along with valuable experience, Home Fundraising also provides opportunities to move up through the ranks of the company into more senior roles and management positions. Indeed, the company proudly states that most of its current managers started out with Home as fundraisers.
Home Fundraising have offices in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield, Nottingham, Liverpool, Birmingham, Exeter, Bristol, Norwich, London and Southampton so there is a good chance that they will have some fundraising vacancies in your area.
