About Us

We are an award-winning Charity fundraising agency with nearly 30 years experience, delivering fundraising and awareness campaigns for some of the UKs 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 youll always know a minimum income with plenty of potential to earn more.

Youll 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 youll 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.
