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.

This will only be possible with an engaged and committed supporter-base behind us. You will be joining a team dedicated to making Crisis supporters feel valued and inspired, helping us lead the sector in delivering excellent supporter experiences.

About the role

As Fundraising Coordinator for Legacies, you will support our Legacy Fundraising Programme. This is an exciting time to join the team in this newly created role, as we look to expand and innovate different ways to inspire our supporters with leaving a gift in their Will, to help end homelessness once and for all.

About you

This role is an excellent opportunity for someone looking to develop the knowledge and skills needed for a career in the charity fundraising sector. To be successful in this role you will:

  • take an organised approach to managing multiple projects and balancing different priorities
  • be confident in your communication skills, whether writing persuasively for a specific audience or talking 1:1 with a supporter of Crisis
  • enjoy thinking creatively and using storytelling to bring complex issues to life
  • be comfortable using digital technology and working with data to improve outcomes

Previous experience in charity fundraising is not a necessary requirement; more than anything, we’re looking for a candidate who is motivated to learn new skills, happy being an active member of a diverse and dynamic team and is passionate about ending homelessness.

We believe diversity is a strength, and our aim is to make sure that Crisis truly reflects the communities we serve. We are actively working towards our organisation being a place where everyone can thrive and make their best contribution to our mission of ending homelessness for good. We know that the more perspectives, voices, and experiences we can bring to this work, the better. We particularly welcome applications from people who have lived experience of homelessness, and people from all marginalised groups, communities and backgrounds.

Working at Crisis

As a member of the team, you will have access to a wide range of employee benefits including:

  • Interest free loans to purchase a train season ticket or a bike or for a deposit to secure a tenancy
  • Mandatory pension scheme, with an employer contribution of 8.5%
  • 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days

Alongside our excellent staff benefits, we will support your ongoing development to build your skills, experience and career.

When you join us, you will have the opportunity to join our staff diversity networks, which aim to champion issues across the organisation, enable staff to be their authentic and best selves and contribute to making Crisis a truly diverse organisation.
