Fundraising Group Marketing Coordinator (Wolverhampton)

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 Wolverhampton.

We're looking for a Marketing Coordinator with a drive to make a difference. You'll design posters to advertise the group's events, contact the local media and make sure everyone knows what you're up to. 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.
  • Helping to organise exciting events; anything from zumbathons to sponsored walks, curry nights to bake offs.
  • Promote the group's fundraising events. You'll put together posters and flyers, write press releases and contact the local media.
  • Keep your groups' pages up to date on the Oxfam website and social media and respond to enquiries.
  • Be an active member of the Wolverhampton Fundraising Group, attending monthly meetings and supporting your fellow volunteers.
  • Inspire others with your passion for Oxfam's work, keeping your group at the heart of the community.
  • 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.
  • 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:

  • The opportunity to contribute to Oxfam's goals of overcoming poverty and suffering worldwide.
  • Develop your marketing skills and build contacts in the local media.
  • 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.
