Front of House Fundraiser Volunteer
Fabrica is looking to recruit volunteers to support our fundraising efforts Front of House. This is a really exciting specialist role within our Front of House volunteer team, offering skills development in a key area of work in the charitable sector and within arts management. Equally, the role draws upon and develops transferable skills in marketing and communications, customer service and sales.
Our FOH Fundraisers work within the rest of the FOH team in the Gallery, welcoming the public and introducing them to our work. They are specifically focused on communicating our charitable aims, engaging in conversations about our fundraising efforts, encouraging donations and membership subscriptions sign ups. Beyond the gallery, FOH Fundraisers are invited to contribute their first hand experience and expertise to develop our Fundraising Communications and each exhibition’s individual Fundraising Plan. This position also offers further training and development opportunities within Fabrica.
We are still recruiting to this role despite the COVID-19 emergency because it's important to our future. We would really like to hear from you if you're interested, even if it may not be practical for us to meet in person for some time. We could talk by phone or video link initially so you can find out more about the role and if it might be right for you.
Interest in volunteering for an arts based or not-for-profit organisation, with experience in fundraising, sales or front-of-house, is preferable. Although, this position is open to everyone, as training is given.
In-house training is available to volunteers which covers practical examples of fundraising communications, an introduction to the legal requirements surrounding collecting donations directly from the public (covering Data Protection, Fundraising Communications and Payment Card Industry Standards) and to the wider role of individual giving within the management of an arts organisation. Volunteers can also choose to partake in a variety of engagement and development opportunities within the role.
This position also offers further training and development opportunities within Fabrica, and welcomes you to all the opportunities, activities and engagement offered to the rest of our volunteer team; such as paid-for art trips, outings and social events such as our volunteers Christmas Party, film screenings and workshops.
We offer paid expenses for travel.
The role has a flexible weekend work pattern - we would ask you to work for a shift a week on a Saturday or Sunday during exhibition from 2 till 5pm, Front of House volunteering at Fabrica will be onsite (40 Duke Street). There are many travel links (trains/buses) which are near to our building.
