Intern - Fundraising team in Chinnor, Oxfordshire

Fight Bladder Cancer has recently established a dedicated fundraising team and is now able to offer a flexible internship to someone who is committed to developing a career in the charity fundraising sector. This excellent opportunity will give you exposure to many aspects of fundraising in this small but very dynamic charity.

What are you going to do

This internship role is a one-off opportunity to gain hands-on experience of supporting the development of a fundraising 'function' in a small charity.


1. Relationship Management: Daily contact and relationship management with individual supporters, donors, volunteers - being a point of contact for fundraising enquiries and representing Fight Bladder Cancer in the most efficient and responsive light.

2. Fundraising Co-ordination: Co-ordinating fundraising activities across multiple income streams and projects, keeping excellent records, data and notes from all donor meetings, committees, updating contact management systems, monitoring progress and reporting regularly on progress, both in writing and verbally to varied stakeholders.

3. Donor Care: establishing systems and processes for receiving donations, thanking donations and inputting data for future use onto the Fight Bladder Cancer Database (Salesforce), complying with Fundraising Regulations, the Data Protection Act / General Data Protection Regulation and other information management legislation and good practice.

What we offer:

You will have the opportunity to work alongside a fast-moving dynamic charity, with highly skilled, motivated and committed volunteers and a small staff team – influencing the growth of support available for people diagnosed with bladder cancer.

Your supervision will be committed and hands-on: you will access a weekly mentoring session from the Development Director, a highly experienced fundraising consultant, contracted by Fight Bladder Cancer who will be working beside you within the charity.

You will be encouraged to access the Institute of Fundraising Chiltern Group and attendance at local Chiltern branch events will be encouraged.
You will develop first-hand experience of trust, corporate, individual and event fundraising, and will be given a personal reference for future employment through evidence of successful delivery.
You will gain an outstanding insight of multiple charity projects and how a small charity operates.
You will gain experience of collaborative working, donor communication and an in depth understanding of fundraising principles
Effective delivery in the post could leverage a fundraising job in the third sector.

What we ask:

  • Bachelor's degree
  • You are likely to have experience of working in an office environment using technology and social media.
  • We are looking for an intern with a passion for developing a career in the charity fundraising sector.
