Volunteer with us

Fundraising & Events Volunteer

We’re looking for volunteers to support our fundraising team in 2020.  While duties may be wide-ranging, the primary initial focus will be to assist in the roll out and recruitment of participants to the Welsh Cakes for Welsh Women’s Aid campaign, as well as activities associated with the Cardiff Lord Mayor’s Charity Appeal, and other fundraising activities.

What we offer
We can offer you opportunities to:

  • access sector-specific domestic abuse training
  • develop your fundraising and campaign skills
  • develop skills and knowledge of creating social media campaigns
  • gain experience in all aspects of event co-ordination
  • gain skills in the use of CRM software.

Skills and experience

While someone with some fundraising experience would be welcomed this is not essential, and we would be happy for you to utilise any transferable skills and experience you have. Good verbal and written communications are a must, and design skills e.g. use of Canva are desirable. We also need someone who:

  • has a passion for feminism and working to end violence against women
  • is happy to share their ideas
  • is articulate and confident about getting on the phone/online to make fundraising ‘asks’
  • has good IT skills
  • is flexible and adaptable
  • is committed to Welsh Women’s Aid values

Time commitment

  • We’re looking for 3 volunteers who are able to commit a minimum of half a day per week between February and the end of May 2020. However, we are also happy to consider a variety of options depending on volunteer availability including remote working and longer-term structured volunteer placements.

Expenses

  • All reasonable travel expenses will be paid.

 

To apply, please send a covering letter to [email protected] setting out your previous experience, any transferable skills you have from other jobs, volunteering roles or education, why you would like to be considered for the role, and your availability. A phone call or Skype meeting will be arranged with shortlisted applicants to discuss the role further.
