Fundraising Group Leader (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.

But we can't do it without a Fundraising Group Leader. We're looking for someone special - with a drive to make a difference. You'll lead a team of volunteers, organising fun, friendly 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 Fundraising Group Leader, you'll chair meetings, recruit new volunteers and work closely with your local community. You'll inspire local people to support Oxfam and play a pivotal role in making change happen.

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:

  • Take a leading role in raising funds to support the work of Oxfam in alleviating poverty and suffering worldwide.
  • Chair monthly meetings and motivate the team to come up with an exciting plan of activities.
  • Together with Jenna, your local community fundraiser, recruit and induct new group members, including a marketing coordinator, events coordinator, treasurer and a secretary.
  • Inspire others with your passion for Oxfam's work, keeping the group at the heart of the community.
  • Be the main point of contact for Oxfam and the group.
  • Arrange occasional socials to celebrate your success!

Skills and competencies:

  • Drive and determination to make your fundraising a great success
  • Strong communication skills, with the ability to motivate, inspire and listen.
  • Leadership and delegation skills
  • 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 leadership and organisational skills.
  • Play a pivotal role in this new fundraising group.
  • 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.
