1. Fundraising Officer
Every charity exists to raise money for its cause through fundraisers but there is more to charity work than calling door to door rattling your tin! Fundraisers, or trust fundraisers, will have to apply for funding from large organizations by putting together funding proposals.
It's a real blend of marketing and sales in a business environment. There is a wide range of specialist fundraising roles in charities these days: community, corporate, direct marketing, events, legacy, major donor, regional, statutory, and trust.
2. Grants Officers/Advisers As a Grant Officer and/or Adviser, you'll tend to work with the fundraising departments to contribute towards the overall fundraising targets of a charity and to ensure the long term sustainability of the charity's work.
