Fundraising Group Events Coordinator (Wolverhampton)


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 Wolverhampton.

We're looking for an Events Coordinator with a drive to make a difference. You'll come up with creative ideas and turn them into fun, friendly fundraising events in and around Wolverhampton. These events can be anything and everything - ranging from sponsored walks to curry nights! You'll inspire local people to support Oxfam and play a pivotal role in making change happen.

Last year, Wolverhampton'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.


Key responsibilities:

  • Working with a group of passionate, likeminded people in the Wolverhampton area.
  • Create plans for events, researching possible venues and coming up with new inspiring ideas.
  • Lead approaches to local businesses, groups and individuals to create contacts and new supporters for events. Anything from providing prizes and sponsorship to hosting events!
  • Inspire others with your passion for Oxfam's work, keeping your group at the heart of the community.
  • Be an active member of the Wolverhampton Fundraising Group, attending monthly meetings and supporting your fellow volunteers.
  • Getting to know the charity; we want you to love what you do, and be passionate about Oxfam. After all, your fundraising means we can help even more people worldwide!

Skills and competencies:

  • Drive and determination to make your fundraising a great success.
  • Strong organisational skills - there'll be a lot to keep track of!
  • Creativity and the ability to think outside the box.
  • Ability to work well as part of a team.

What this role can offer the volunteer:

  • The opportunity to contribute to Oxfam's goals of overcoming poverty and suffering worldwide.
  • Developing event management and organisational skills.
  • A chance to let your creativity shine and get more involved with the local community.
  • Support from Oxfam every step of the way; inductions, training and ongoing help.
  • Out of pocket expenses will be reimbursed in line with Oxfam's expenses policy.
