Fundraising Group Events Coordinator (Stratford-upon-Avon)


Oxfam Fundraising Groups are teams of likeminded people who are passionate about changing the world.

With over 60 fundraising groups across the UK, we're looking to set up our next group in Stratford-upon-Avon.

Once up and running, the Stratford-upon-Avon Fundraising Group will organise fun, friendly fundraising events in and around Stratford-upon-Avon. These can be anything and everything - our fundraising groups organise all kinds of events, ranging from sponsored walks to golf days and curry nights to gala dinners!

As events coordinator, you'll be behind the scenes, making these events happen. You'll research existing events and come up with creative ideas for new ones. With the support of the group, you'll come up with a clear plan for each event, paying attention to detail and ensuring they raise as much money as possible.

Last year, Stratford-Upon-Avon's nearest neighbouring group, the Birmingham Fundraising Group, raised over £4600 for Oxfam's work - that's enough to train 148 midwives in Ghana, or provide water for 1500 families in an emergency. By working together locally, you'll make a difference globally - and have a great time along the way.

Frequency: Flexible, 2 - 4 hours a week, times and days to suit you!


Key responsibilities:

  • You'll have a vital role in raising funds to support the work of Oxfam in alleviating poverty and suffering worldwide.
  • Come up with creative and inspiring event ideas. These can be anything, ranging from bake offs to BBQ's!
  • Lead approaches to local businesses, groups and individuals to create new contacts. These could involve sourcing raffle prizes or asking local businesses to sponsor your events.
  • Come up with plans for your events, recruiting volunteers to help where necessary.
  • Inspire others with your passion for Oxfam's work, keeping your group at the heart of the community.
  • Be an active member of the Stratford-upon-Avon Fundraising Group, attending monthly meetings and supporting your fellow volunteers.

Skills and competencies:

  • Drive and determination to make your fundraising a great success.
  • Strong organisational skills.
  • Creative and able to think outside the box.
  • Ability to work well as part of a team.

What this role can offer the volunteer:

  • This is your chance to contribute to Oxfam's goals of overcoming poverty and suffering worldwide.
  • Develop and enhance your skills in events management and organisation.
  • Be creative and get more involved with your local community.
  • Comprehensive induction into Oxfam's work and training and ongoing support from Jenna, your local community fundraiser.
  • Out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed in line with Oxfam's expense policy.
