Were seeking goal orientated people with a positive, strong work ethic and a drive to make a difference!


About Us

Were an award-winning charity fundraising agency with nearly 30 years experience, that delivers 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 £40m for our charity partners each year.

The Face to Face Charity Fundraiser Role

This is a pride-inducing job where you'll be making a genuine difference to the lives of those in need while growing your skill set and career opportunities.

As the face of our charity clients, you'll interact with the public, seeking their support in the form of regular monthly direct debit donations or lottery sign ups.

All Charity Link fundraisers are employed on permanent contracts, so you'll have the security of a regular and predictable base income with plenty of scope to earn more.

You'll receive charity-branded clothing and equipment (including stands, pull-ups, tables, gazebos etc) as well as an electronic tablet to sign up donors.

Typical working hours vary according to the venues you attend (with the aim of being there when footfall is at its highest) and for door to door the ideal working day is 11am-7pm, especially the important twilight hours 5-7pm which are the best times to sign up donors!

This hybrid Door to Door / Private Site fundraising role means that you should be equally happy to work either on the doors or in private sites.

We welcome flexibility in our candidates. It may be that youll be working on the doors during week days and private sites during some weekends (especially during the busy show season in summer). You may be invited to switch to a pre-booked private site at any time of the year where there is no other allocated fundraiser.

Door to Door fundraising takes place at pre-allocated postcodes within reach of your own home.

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.

Whilst you're still in training during the first 12 weeks, you'll receive an abundance of support including a comprehensive induction week and your very own mentor.

During your time in this role, you'll pick up the vital knowledge and skills required for success, while building resilience and confidence.

When you're ready for the next challenge, your opportunities will broaden, along with your earning potential.

Life as a charity fundraiser is an exciting one, full of challenges and even more rewards. No two days are the same and youll 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!
