"From my first day in the YoungMinds fundraising team I felt welcomed, supported and part of something. The team all help one another so much."
YoungMinds are growing! We are adding this role and a few more to our friendly fundraising team of 15 so we will soon be 20. If you are organised, love people and would like to be a part of our mission to make sure that all young people get the support they need, when they need it, no matter what, this could be the role for you.
Our team size is perfect for someone who wants to experience a breadth of fundraising - we are large enough to offer support to one another and small enough to mean that we get involved with each other’s work, so we all get some experience of different fundraising methods. Also, because of our size, each person knows how much impact they are making. It’s pretty special.
We are adding to our team as we’ve had a very successful fundraising year, due to our supporters knowing that the mental health of young people is so important. We hope you do too and want to be part of that change.
This role will be a part of our Supporter Engagement team. We deal directly with our fantastic supporters who run marathons, take part in events in their community and on Facebook and create hundreds of other ways to fundraise. As well as all of that, we lead on YoungMinds’ key fundraising campaigns such as #HelloYellow.
We speak to people every day to help, support and encourage them and make sure they have everything they need to make their fundraising a success.
If you are organised, enjoy interacting with people (in person, over the phone and via email) and love the prospect of a role that is different every day and needs your creativity to craft meaningful ways of engaging with our varied supporter audiences, then this may be for you.
At the moment you might be in a fundraising role, looking for your next step, or maybe working in a different sector entirely, using all the skills we need.

We believe that it is as important that the role is right for you as you being right for us, so if a chat before applying would be useful, please get in touch.
One of our values is: “We celebrate what makes you you – whoever you are, we welcome you and encourage you to be true to yourself”.
If you are excited about helping us to achieve our mission, passionate about working at an organisation that is puts the lived experience of young people at the heart of everything we do and want to be part of our drive to become a truly anti-racist organisation we want to hear from you.
