Philanthropy Team Volunteer

Closing date:
Flexible, 2-3 days per week

About the role

This is an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to gain valuable major gifts, events and research experience in a dynamic national charity, supporting the day to day work of the philanthropy team.

This exciting opportunity is within our partnerships team at Mind, where you would be working collaboratively with the Philanthropy Officers and Special Events Officer to assist in supporting Major Donor Account handlers with the relationship building and stewardship of high net worth individuals.  We view a high net worth individual as someone whose giving exceeds £3,000 a year, or has the capacity to significantly fund a Mind project.  High net worth individuals play a vital role in furthering the reach and scope of the Minds charitable activities. The role may also involve supporting on the exciting programme of special events within the organisation.

The role requires excellent communication, administration and project management skills.

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.

The role is flexible and we are looking for someone who can volunteer from our Stratford office, ideally for up to 3 days per week, for 3 months. Although the post is unpaid, we can offer reimbursement of reasonable travel up to £15.00 per day and lunch expenses up to £5 per day.

Mind is committed to equality of opportunity for all staff, and applications from individuals are encouraged regardless of age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and marriage and civil partnerships.

How to apply

Send CV and cover letter to the Volunteering team, [email protected] explaining why you are interested to volunteer for Mind and in this role. Please also state your availability and how soon you could start volunteering.
