Volunteer Role

We’re looking for volunteers to support us with:

- Helping to research trusts which we could submit applications to;
- Helping to write and send applications to trusts; and
- Helping to update our database and ensure information is used effectively and efficiently

If you have any of the following skills and experience:

- Research skills, including using the internet;
- Knowledge of using a database
- Attention to detail and good writing skills;
- Some knowledge and understanding of fundraising, including trust fundraising which would be helpful but not essential.
We would like to meet you.

Training and support
- You will receive a full volunteer induction to CASBA Advocacy and your role, as well as in-house training on the use of our database
- You will receive regular support, and opportunities to meet with other volunteers.

What you’ll get from the role:
- You will be able to utilise your existing skills as well as develop and learn new ones to take forward into the future, including research skills;
- The opportunity to join a friendly, supportive and passionate team and develop an understanding of how a busy charity fundraising team operates;
- Training for, and experience of using, a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) database

Time commitment
- As much time as you would like, but we’re ideally looking for a regular commitment of at least four hours per week, across one morning or afternoon, ideally within CASBA’s core opening hours (9am-5:30pm, Monday—Friday). This is a remote role and can be done from home.

Practical considerations:
You will receive a full induction to CASBA and any specific training for the role, as well as ongoing support from a team member within the Trust and Foundations Team.

For further details and to apply:
- Contact Becky Jones Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected]   
- You will be invited to have informal discussions with the CEO and the Fundraising and Communications Officer, which can be held on zoom or face to face.
