Fundraising Officer

As a Fundraising Officer you will have lots of ideas and enthuasiasm to help us find new fundraising opportunities for SSAFA and to make sure our existing events continue to succeed.

About the role

As Fundraising Officer you will plan and carry out your own fundraising strategy including local and national events and appeals and fundraising through trusts and the corporate sector.

Volunteering for SSAFA is special because you get to see first hand the difference you make to people’s lives. Your fundraising will ensure that you and other volunteers can continue to provide practical support for members of the Armed Forces community and their families in your local area. You will be supported by the Regional Fundraising Manager in your area and the Secretary.

Your role might also involve working with, and recruiting, fundraising volunteers and you’ll work with the local Secretary to do this.

This is an exciting opportunity to use your local knowledge and expertise to benefit those in your community, while you develop new skills and meet some inspirational people.

Who we're looking for

We’ll give you local induction training about SSAFA and we will give you fundraising training when you join us.

You do not need a Forces background to volunteer with us. Most importantly, we are looking for volunteers who will listen sensitively and treat people with respect at all times. We also welcome people who have:

  • Willingness to develop new skills and train for new things
  • Basic IT skills
  • Ability to work in a team and support others
  • Ability to work within our Volunteer Policy and Code of Conduct
  • Ability to work confidentially
  • A driver’s licence (for some geographical areas).
