Volunteer Opportunity: Fundraising & Communications Support

Fundraising is what makes it possible for us to provide material essentials and priceless solidarity to a growing number of refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK, Europe and beyond.

We are looking for a Fundraising Support and Communications Intern who can dedicate around 6-8 hours a week on a volunteer basis. Working directly with our Trustees for Fundraising and our Communications and Fundraising Director, the role involves building and maintaining a donor database, creating content for social media, posting on our various channels, engaging with others to grow our community, and applying digital marketing best practices to help us achieve our goals.

This is an unpaid, volunteer position and an ideal opportunity for an independent self-starter who is looking to gain practical experience working for a grassroots humanitarian charity.

Tasks and responsibilities include building a database of major donors, working closely with our comms team to come up with content ideas, draft captions and create graphics for posting regularly on social media in line with our content strategy; engaging regularly with responses and chats on each platform, and attending weekly meetings with our comms and fundraising team.

Ideally you will have strong research and critical thinking skills; a good understanding of the charity/nonprofit sector, preferably with an interest in fundraising; familiarity with Instagram, Twitter (X), Facebook and LinkedIn, and able to write captions and create content tailored to those platforms; experience of digital marketing in a charity or nonprofit setting; an eye for design and ability to create graphics and visual content. An  understanding of, and alignment with, our work, mission and values is essential.

In exchange, we offer ongoing feedback and professional development support; the chance to make a meaningful contribution to a small, impactful charity that stands up for the rights of refugees; and a LinkedIn recommendation and references as required.
