Are you passionate about the environment and young people? This is an exciting opportunity for you!


To liaise with the Trustees, Committee and the Project Manager of the Eye Project to support the fund-raising efforts principally by producing funding bids to both national and local fund providers. 


  • To join the steering committee with the objective of being the lead Bid Writer and developing the EYE Project teams in fundraising skills and capabilities.
  • To help identify fund raising sources and opportunities, be they Not For Profit, Private, Business or Governmental. 
  • To develop the relationship with relevant organisations so that they understand and appreciate the EYE Project objectives
  • To prepare bid applications and support the progress of bids to ensure alignment with the fund providers intention.
  • To develop the EYE Projects overall capability in fundraising both at a collective and individual level.



Experience in Bid Writing and volunteering on the fundraising side within the Not-for-Profit sector would be an advantage but equally someone who brings a parallel set of skills from business, marketing, government or any other relevant area would be welcome. 


This is an amazing opportunity to:

  • gain or develop broad experience in fundraising and the charity sector
  • join a small but growing passionate team with massive ambitions
  • make a significant difference by allowing us to reach more children and facilitate their aspirations to save our planet!

Practical Considerations

You will volunteer within the team of Trustees/Committee Members though the principal contact will be the Project Manager. 

It is envisaged that there will be a need for a commitment on 3 to 4 days a month. 

Most meetings for the EYE Project are currently held on Zoom so travel is a minimum. 

When do I need to be available?

Details Hours and days are completely flexible. We envisage about 3 or 4 days a month, but this can be split over multiple days.
