Events Organiser

Events Organiser
Craft Aid International
Description of the role:

We are looking for a volunteer, who can help us organise fund-raising events, such as our annual ball, carol service, and 1940’s-themed night. We may also sometimes need help organising local craft fairs.

Tasks may include organising raffle prizes, writing letters to volunteers, budgeting, ordering equipment and necessary items online, communicating with venue-managers, and working with the rest of the office team to form a fundraising strategy for each event.

You will be working from our home office in Harrogate, but may also be able to do some work from home.

Skills and qualities needed for the role:

Previous experience in events-organisation would be beneficial. We are looking for someone who has good organisational skills, has a basic understanding of how to use computers, is comfortable making phone calls, and is able to write letters etc.

If you have your own laptop that would be beneficial, although it is not essential.

We welcome volunteers of all faiths and none. Craft Aid International is founded on Christian principles of love, compassion, inclusion and justice for people on the margins; and serves people of all faiths and none. We don’t require volunteers to be Christians, but we do require that they be sympathetic to the principles on which we are founded.

Practical information:

We require volunteers to send us their CV and a reference.
We are happy to give a reference for our volunteers.
We offer volunteers the opportunity to learn how to work as part of a team, to understand more about how a small charity operates, and to gain confidence in communicating with a variety of different people and organisations.
