Volunteer Programme Fundraiser

We are looking for a highly motivated person with excellent communication skills who recognises the value of volunteering – both to the organisation and the individual.

So, if you want to grow the community of supporters at all levels, right across the region… then apply today!

Position: Volunteer Programme Fundraiser

Location: Cambridge/Hybrid

Salary: £24,000 - £26,000 per annum (depending on skills and experience)

Hours: Full-time, 37.5 hours per week

Contract: Permanent

Closing date: 12th May 2024, however we reserve the right to close this vacancy once a sufficient number of applications have been received or a successful candidate is found.

About the Role

We currently have a variety of volunteer roles including Fundraising Volunteers, Information Hub Volunteers (who support the Charity Hubs around the hospitals), and event volunteers. The organisation would like to grow the volunteer roles and introduce official Fundraising groups across The East of England to the portfolio.

These are ambitious plans and targets for the charity over the next five years – and volunteers play a huge part in that vision.

Successfully delivering this exciting new fundraising strategy is only possible with a strong team of engaged volunteers – and that is only possible if there are the right volunteer fundraisers in the team.

If successful, you will be working closely with colleagues to identify opportunities for volunteering across events, assisting fundraisers out in the community, setting up fundraising committees, and sourcing income generation opportunities at local community events. You will also be responsible for growing the pool of volunteers allowing presence across the hospital, promoting the work and impact of the charity.

You will also be responsible for co-ordinating the exciting new Hubs within the Hospital programme– ensuring that they are adequately staffed by excellent volunteers who are highly trained, and that are providing an excellent patient experience, in these crucial front-of-house opportunities.

If this sounds like something you want to be involved in, we cannot wait to meet you!

About You

We are looking for someone who can build a team of committed and engaged volunteers to support the fundraising and generate income through volunteer activities. You will bring your experience of establishing positive relationships, as well as your knowledge of volunteering best practices, to create a programme that appeals to people who want to support the Hospital. You will be able to make the volunteers feel fulfilled, engaged, and proud to be a part of the team.

You will be asked to send your CV and a cover letter explaining why you are a good fit for the role.

In return

This is an amazing place to work! Recently voted one of the top 100 hospitals in the world and a leader in the field of healthcare innovation, recognised worldwide as a pre-eminent teaching hospital.

You will receive a fantastic benefits package including:


  • Pension Scheme
  • Group Life Assurance @ 4 x Salary
  • Enhanced Maternity and Paternity Pay
  • Annual Eye Tests + £65 (towards Computer Use Glasses)
  • Leisure Centre on site
  • NHS Discount Schemes
  • Health Cash Plan
  • Employee Assistance Programmes
  • 25 days of Annual Leave + Bank Holidays PLUS Your Birthday off - increases by one day each year after 2 years’ (up to 29 days)
  • Cycle 2 Work Scheme


We strongly encourage candidates of different backgrounds and identities to apply. Each new team member is an opportunity for the organisation to bring in a different perspective and further diversify the charity.

Other roles you may have experience with could include Volunteer Coordinator, Volunteer Manager, Volunteer Engagement, Fundraiser, Fundraising, Community Fundraiser, Events Fundraiser.
