Local Fundraisers

Salary: Freelance/self employed/seasonal (typically March-October)
You could start soon by applying today!
Closing date: Applications accepted all year round


Location: Vacancies throughout Norfolk (excluding postcode areas NR1-NR8)

Are you passionate about the region’s wildlife and looking to earn some extra income by doing something that you really believe in? Would you like to help Norfolk Wildlife Trust achieve its aim of finding new members in your local area and beyond? If you enjoy walking, and have around 15 hours a week to spare, primarily during weekday evenings, then we would love you to become a Local Fundraiser.

You will be working in your local area for FMR Solutions Ltd (established 1995) a specialist wildlife charity membership recruitment agency, on behalf of the Norfolk Wildlife Trust. Our “Soft Approach” method secures committed and generous supporters who remain members long term. The work is generally seasonal, from March until the end of October. However, some of our Local Fundraisers also work through the winter months. Local Fundraisers use the unique 'Soft Approach' method, which involves you going door to door in the more prosperous areas. However, unlike other “face to face” fundraising jobs, there is no selling or persuading involved. Your attitude will be friendly and informal. We use a booklet about the Trust to do the “selling”. It’s your job to get the booklet out to interested people and to help with the “sign-up” via direct debit, if people decide to become members. Norfolk Wildlife Trust is registered with the Fundraising Regulator and adheres to its standards.

•    Outdoor work, involving walking
•    Travel by car or bicycle will be required
•    Local Fundraisers required from March 2019, but start date flexible
•    No hard selling involved
•    Training given

Salary:
Initially, during a 2-week Trial Period, you will work 15 hours per week Monday - Friday evenings, paid at £10 per hour.

The Trial Period is for you to discover if you enjoy doing this kind of work and for us to discover if you are likely to make a success of it. The hourly rate is paid irrespective of the end result, and should be regarded as a "safety net" so that those who are sceptical about our “Soft Approach” method can try it without any financial risk to themselves or the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.

After a successful 2-week Trial Period, you could earn on average £54 per direct debit “sign-up”, so £702 - £1170* per month achievable, - on a freelance/self-employed basis. Earnings could be more or less than this. The end result is somewhat unpredictable. But there are no targets to meet, and you have complete flexibility regarding the hours/the days you work. *3-5 sign-ups” per week.
