Current opportunities

You don't need to be a social media or marketing expert for this role - just able to use the internet, email and confident talking to people. We’ll tell you about our latest national fundraising activities, emergency appeals and campaign messages so you can tell others and encourage them to take part, support and attend events. You’ll research local opportunities, and contact local businesses, schools and local groups. You’ll also find free ways to tell your community about what’s happening locally and nationally. The Community Fundraising Manager is only a phone call away for support and you’ll meet up with them regularly to make promotional plans and for any mutual updates. It’s a really flexible role which can fit around your other commitments. If you’re over 18 and can commit to at least two hours a week for a minimum of six months please get in touch.

Save the Children are looking to engage as many people as possible to get them donating, fundraising and raising awareness. You can help this process through your local networks. This is a terrific role for you to get stuck into and all you’ll need is a computer and a phone. By researching local businesses, schools and organisations, you’ll also look for potential opportunities and different ways to promote local fundraising activities happening in your community. So, you’ll need to feel confident speaking to different people over the phone, using the internet to carry out research and creating a spreadsheet or report for your Community Fundraising Manager. And once you've done that, you could get involved in the organisation and delivery of different events and initiatives. Each local community is different and with your help we can make the most of the interests and opportunities your local one provides.

Our Save the Children Shop in Broughty Ferry has been a much loved part of the local community for years and continues to be hugely popular with customers and supporters, thanks to the kindness and generosity of the wonderful volunteer team. If you would like to volunteer with us all you will need is some enthusiasm and a desire to make a difference. The role is diverse, taking place on the shop floor and behind the scenes. Volunteer tasks include anything from sorting donations, steaming clothes, pricing products, managing the till, and helping with the window displays. You can choose how much time you dedicate, and we’ll give you training and support along the way. No special skills are needed, and we welcome people from all nationalities and backgrounds. Your donation of time, creativity and kindness can help us change the future for children all over the world!
