Use your Fundraising and Team Leadership experience to help change children's lives for the better

At World Vision, we truly understand the positive impact our Fundraisers make within our organisation. This is only possible if they have a strong Team Leader. Someone who can recruit, coach and develop Face-to-Face Fundraisers to ensure they are the best that they can be. Could that be someone like you? If you have fundraising experience and the qualities to be an effective Team Leader, this is your chance to join the World Vision Face-to-Face Fundraising team.

We are looking for a Team Leader to join our Face-to-Face fundraising team, initially on a fixed-term contract until 31st March 2017 but it could lead to a permanent position. This team is set to expand over the next 3 years which means this is a great time to join us and build a career working in the charity fundraising sector.

World Vision is the world's largest international children's charity. Every day we bring real hope to millions of children in the world's hardest places as a sign of God's unconditional love. At World Vision, our aim is simple - to keep every child free from fear. We were proud to be voted one of the Top 100 'Best Not-For-Profit Organisations to Work For' in 2014 and 2015 and we are absolutely delighted to be ranked in 9th place in the same category for 2016.

Could you be a true brand ambassador who can lead from the front and inspire a team while encouraging members of the public to become a World Vision supporter? In order to achieve this, you will need to deliver an all-round sponsorship 'experience' to enlist new high value donors through your own efforts as well as those of your team in order to meet target sign-ups and performance levels. You will also be a fantastic storyteller who is able to captivate people's interest and direct them on a sponsorship journey.

Developing and maintaining a team culture aligned with World Vision's Christian identity and ethos will be key. This role will give you the opportunity to integrate your own Christian faith and be sensitive to its various expressions across cultures and denominations.

Operating mainly from Shopping Malls, but also venues such as Festivals, Retail Exhibitions and Town Centres, you will be required to work a shift pattern, which will include some weekends.

Strong team leadership, coaching and verbal/face-to-face communication skills will be complemented by your ability to influence, negotiate and work with site owners within the locations where we will operate.

In addition to the salary offered, you can expect a good range of benefits including pension, subsidised gym membership and generous holiday entitlement.

If you welcome the chance to be part of the growing Face-to-Face fundraising team and have the skills and qualities required, we'd welcome your application.
