About us
Crisis is the national charity for homeless people. We know that homelessness is not inevitable. We know that together we can end it. 

The Corporate Fundraising programme at Crisis has flourished in recent years and has the full backing of senior leaders and an inspirational case for support to end homelessness. We are working to end homelessness in three ways; person by person at the individual level, place by place in specific places around Britain, and policy by policy at a national level – together these offer a variety of opportunities for our companies to engage with our work.  

We’re searching for a proactive Fundraising Administrator to support the Corporate Partnerships team as we consolidate the changes and successes of recent years and prepare for the next phase of ambitious growth.  

The corporate fundraising team has partners from a wide range of sectors including housing and property, professional services, pharmaceuticals, FMCG and online fashion. We are growing our consumer facing portfolio, and developing strategic partnerships that go beyond fundraising in helping to end homelessness.

Come and join the Crisis Corporate partnerships team and help us end homelessness!
