This is a specialist role within our Front of House volunteer team, but extends behind the scenes, supporting back-office tasks and beyond the Gallery, connecting with the wider Brighton & Hove community. This role offers 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. This role includes: Volunteering FOH, working with fellow volunteers to encourage donations in the Gallery. All Fundraising Ambassadors are expected to volunteer for at least one exhibition before engaging with the wider opportunities this role has to offer Community Fundraising: planning and organizing fundraising initiatives such as sponsored challenges and charity sales.
Interest in volunteering for an arts based or not-for-profit organisation, with experience in fundraising, sales or front-of-house, is preferable. However, this position is open to everyone, as training is given.
