Fundraising Group Marketing Coordinator (Stratford-upon-Avon)

Context:

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 Marketing Coordinator, you'll be responsible for making sure everyone knows about your events. You'll put together posters and flyers, keep the Oxfam website up to date and let the local media know about your upcoming activities.

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.
  • Put together posters and flyers to advertise your group and it's events.
  • Keep your group's pages up to date on the Oxfam website and social media and respond to enquiries when needed.
  • Contact the local media with details of your upcoming activities.
  • 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, helping to organise events and supporting your fellow volunteers.

Skills and competencies:

  • Drive and determination to make your fundraising a great success.
  • Confidence in both written and verbal communication.
  • A basic understanding of marketing and a willingness to develop skills in this area.
  • 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 marketing skills and build contacts with local media.
  • Comprehensive induction into Oxfam's work, training and ongoing support from Jenna, your local community fundraiser.
  • Out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed in line with Oxfam's expense policy.
