About the role

We are recruiting for a volunteer in the events team. This is an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to gain valuable events fundraising experience in a dynamic national charity, supporting the day to day work of the Events Fundraising Team. The role offers the opportunity to gain a working knowledge of events fundraising across a wide range of events fundraising activity.

We pride ourselves on our excellent customer care to all our fundraising supporters, from phone calls, emails, enewsletters, letters and post-event receptions. The Events Fundraising Volunteer will be involved with customer care, updating our database, managing fundraising materials and helping plan event day activities. You will have the opportunity to attend some events and get some real experience with fundraising supporters.

The Events Team sits within the Public Fundraising Unit and is made up of an Events Fundraising Manager, two Senior Events Officers and three Event Coordinators. The team raises approximately £2.4 million gross income per year for Mind’s work.

Mind aims to ensure that the needs and interest of mental health services users, women, Black and Minority Ethnic communities, disabled people, lesbians, gay men and bisexuals and people of all ages are reflected in all its activities. The Events Fundraising Volunteer is expected to contribute to this aim.

The role is flexible and we are looking for someone who can work from our Stratford Office, East London ideally for up to 3 days per week for four months. Although the post is unpaid, we can offer reimbursement of travel up to £15 per day and lunch expenses up to £5 per day.

We welcome interest from those individuals who have direct or indirect experience of a mental health problem, who will gain support and understanding, with the opportunity to build confidence, skills and experience from Mind.
