Working for us as an employee

No matter which part of the organisation we work in, we’re united in making a real difference to the work of charities and fundraisers. We passionately believe that the development of an equal, diverse and inclusive fundraising community is integral to delivering excellent fundraising. To help us achieve this we need people with all types of skills and from all kinds of backgrounds. It's important to us that our staff bring their skills and knowledge regardless of age, being trans, being married or in a civil partnership, being pregnant on maternity leave, disability, race including colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion, belief or lack of religion/belief, sex, or sexual orientation. 

We ask all applicants to tell us about their personal information by completing a monitoring form to help us monitor our processes and ensure that we treat everyone fairly. This information is not seen or used by the shortlisting or selection panel. You can read our privacy policy and how we use your data.

As a small team (around 50 strong) with considerable reach within the sector we are constantly busy, however, we benefit from being of a size where we all know each other and understand how we need to work together to achieve our aims. We have a friendly atmosphere and a strong desire to listen to those who work with us, so we can be flexible and work with you in true partnership to help you to develop with us.

As an employee, you will, of course, benefit from free access to all of our membership benefits including our Academy courses as well as our employee benefits
