Fundraising Intern

Flight Free UK


Volunteer • Part Time

Sectors: environmental policy & campaigning, carbon, climate & energy, sustainable transport

Closing date: Friday, 7th June 2024  

Are you looking to work in the fundraising sector, and would like to gain some experience first?

This is your chance to volunteer with a charity and help us to raise much-needed funds as well as expanding your own skillset in the fundraising sphere. 

Flight Free UK is a behaviour change charity that aims to reduce emissions and create a social shift away from flying. We have been running for five years and are looking to expand our team. Successful fundraising is a key part of that!

As our fundraising intern, your tasks will include:

  • Working with our supporters to increase the number of monthly donations we receive
  • Researching and applying for grants from trusts/foundations

This is a flexible, remote-working role for around 8 hours per week. You must have access to a laptop and the internet. Some understanding of fundraising from individuals and/or organisations would help, but is not essential. 

Full supervision is provided by the campaign director, and you will receive training in bid writing and effective communication.

To apply, please send your CV and a cover letter to [email protected]. Please explain how your skills and past experience are suited to the role, and why you want to work with Flight Free UK. Please be specific about our campaign, rather than general environmental campaigning. And we’d love it if you’ve signed the flight free pledge!
