Race for Life Schools Local Fundraising Co-ordinator - Nationwide opsRace For Life Schools Local Fundraising Co-Ordinator - Nationwide Ops



Children are our future researchers, fundraisers and life-savers. We work closely with a number of schools who raise millions of pounds each year for life saving research through fundraising, whether that’s dress-down days, taking part in one of our campaigns or signing up to run their very own Race for Life! With over 32,000 schools in the UK, schools can have a huge impact on the pioneering and vital work carried out by Cancer Research UK.

Do you long for the day when all cancers are cured? Did you know that Cancer Research UK is the only charity with the knowledge and expertise to tackle all 200 types of cancer?

If you want to meet like mind people beating cancer, become a key ambassador in your community and help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured, then look no further.

What you'll be doing
Some of the things you may experience include:

  • Speaking to different staff members of the school about a fundraising product
  • Supporting the school to put together a presentation or assembly to educate children on CRUK or fundraising
  • Liaising with your CRUK staff contact to order fundraising materials for schools
  • Attending fundraising events to offer additional on the day support
  • Thanking schools through certificates and cheque presentations or school assemblies

Please note that you may be required to complete further safeguarding/vetting checks as requested by individual schools. Some schools will not allow you on their premises without such checks.

*The type of person we’re looking for?*
Individuals who have experience working with or at schools, colleges, youth groups or universities is desirable but not compulsory.

In terms of personal qualities, we are seeking to recruit confident individuals who are committed to working closely with each school over the school year. You will need to be proactive, passionate and not afraid to contact schools. You should also be approachable, flexible and able to attend occasional meetings or events with school staff within school hours (usually in the mornings 8:30am). As you will be a representative of our brand, we are looking for someone with high standards of integrity and who understands the potential safeguarding concerns involved when liaising with educational establishments.

Where will this role be based?
All roles will be home-based with travel to schools and organisations within your community – this ‘area’ can be agreed with your CRUK staff contact.

How much time do you need to commit?
As this is a flexible volunteering opportunity this is something to discuss with your staff contact, but we’d be looking for our volunteer to be available regularly between November-July to coincide with school fundraising.
