SheffFutures Sheffield Futures

Here at Sheffield Futures we are currently looking for enthusiastic people to join us as Fundraising Volunteers.

Our Fundraising Volunteer role is a relatively new position where individuals act as the public faces of Sheffield Futures. Fundraising Volunteers are on the front line, generating the vital funds that enable us to support the young people of Sheffield. Fundraising Volunteers take an active role in the community; planning and supporting events for Sheffield Futures as well as engaging with bucket collections, games and activities around the city.

This is a customer facing role and a key part of fundraising is the ability to quickly build relationships with all kinds of people. You will be directly involved with liaising with our community partners; collecting prizes for raffles and tombolas from local businesses and shops. As the public face of the charity, you will spread the message about the good work Sheffield Futures does and increase public awareness of the organization.

The role also includes being responsible for distributing and collecting our Sheffield futures collection tins. This involves talking to staff in shops, pubs and local businesses in your area, asking if they would be happy to support us by taking one of our tins.

We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated people who are confident engaging with members of the public. However, we also want people who are looking to develop as an individual as the role includes a comprehensive training plan that covers topics including marketing, strategy development and professional boundaries – all of which make a great addition to any CV. We will also fully brief you on Sheffield Futures as an organization so you can confidently talk about us with the public.

The role offers a great deal of flexibility and generally works on an ad hoc basis. You will work closely with the fundraising development team, helping to action their plans. You will also be able to contribute your own ideas, and fundraising volunteers will work together as a team to run their own events.

This is a great opportunity to make a difference to your local area and improve the lives of young people in Sheffield. It will also allow you to grow as a person while meeting lots of new people both in the community and within the fundraising team.

If you are interested in this role, please get in touch with the Volunteer Officer at volunteer@sheffieldfutures.org.uk or call 0114 201 6609.
