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.

About the role

This is a fixed term role for 1 year and based in Coventry; you will be required to work from the office for a minimum of 1 day a week. 

This is an exciting, fixed term position, providing cover while the current postholder is on secondment. The role is in our ambitious and award-winning fundraising team, committed to finding innovative ways to build Crisis’ profile and support across the UK

In this role, you will be responsible for contributing to income growth across the West Midlands, and you will be involved in the development of networks and activity to generate funds from communities, individuals, local trusts, companies, and volunteer fundraising groups, whilst ensuring an excellent supporter experience.

About you

To be successful in this role you will:

  • Have previous experience of using your excellent communication skills to build a wide range of successful relationships and deliver first-rate supporter or customer care, ideally including having worked with volunteers.
  • You will be comfortable working remotely, often away from other fundraising colleagues, and will need to demonstrate your ability to use your own initiative to research and identify opportunities and deliver projects or events.
  • You’ll be highly motivated to help achieve the change needed to end homelessness altogether.

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 for travel season ticket, cycle to work, and deposit to secure a tenancy
  • Pension scheme with an employer contribution of 8.5%
  • 25 days’ annual leave which increases with service to 28 days and option to purchase up to 10 additional days leave
  • Enhanced maternity, paternity, shared parental, and adoption pay
  • Flexible working around the core hours 10am-4pm
  • And more! (Full list of benefits available on website)

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.
