We are currently looking for an organised and methodical researcher to support our Trusts and Foundations fundraising by developing a database of relevant funding opportunities.
The Children on the Edge Head Office is based in Chichester, West Sussex. From this office the charity drives its international development strategy, major fundraising and charitable governance.
We are always keen to hear from people who identify with our aims and goals, have a heart for volunteering their time and their relevant skills for a truly worthwhile cause.
As a research volunteer, working together with our Grants Officer you will research relevant trusts, foundations and other funding opportunities from within the UK, Europe and internationally. Due to our recent successful application for equivalency determination status, the USA now offers a wealth of opportunities which were previously unavailable to us.
Developing an understanding of Children on the Edge and our work, you will be able to systemically and thoroughly carry out in depth research, using a wide variety of available sources and record your findings in a clear and coherent way.
By identifying key funding opportunities you’ll make a big difference to Children on the Edge and, ultimately, to the lives of vulnerable children around the world.
To find out more about this post including goals, key tasks and responsibilities, skills required and benefits for you, please see the job description on our volunteer page.
If you feel this is something you have the skills for and you would be willing to give some time, then simply fill out a volunteer registration form and we will then arrange for you to meet with our Office Manager and Grants Officer.
We look forward to hearing from you!
