Fundraising Group Leader (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 a Fundraising Group Leader with a drive to make a difference. You'll lead a team of volunteers, organising fun, friendly events in and around Wolverhampton. 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, 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, like-minded people in the Wolverhampton area.
  • Taking a leading role in raising funds to help overcome poverty and suffering.
  • Planning fundraising activities; anything from sponsored walks to zumbathons, curry nights to bake offs!
  • Working together with Jenna, your local fundraiser, recruiting and getting people involved with the group; you'll need a marketing coordinator, events coordinator, treasurer and communications coordinator.
  • Inspiring others to support Oxfam, ensuring your group is at the heart of the local community.
  • Being the main point of contact, both for Oxfam and the group.
  • Getting to know Oxfam; we want you to love what you do, and be passionate about our work. 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 communication skills, with the ability to motivate, inspire and listen.
  • Leadership and delegation skills.

What this role can offer the volunteer:

  • The opportunity to contribute to Oxfam's goals of overcoming poverty and suffering worldwide.
  • Developing leadership and organisational skills - making an amazing contribution by motivating your team towards the same goal.
  • 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.
