Working with The Professional Fundraiser will be like no other company you’ve worked for before. We’re different, we’re exciting, we’re the nicest bunch of people in the world, and we really want you to be a part of it!
Free fruit, drinks and snacks
We love food! We provide a selection of free fruit, organic fruity teas and healthy snacks for you to enjoy… and maybe one or two unhealthy snacks at times too!
We work to live – enjoying up to 27 days paid annual leave plus bank holidays, and an additional three to four days between Christmas and New Year.
Design your day
9 to 5 or 11 to 7. Or whatever you prefer. We work 7.5 hours a day, but it’s up to you when you choose to start and finish, and how long you take for lunch.
Run, walk or cycle to work
We have on-site showers and offer a cycle-to-work scheme. If you prefer to travel by car, that’s cool: we have plenty of car parking onsite too.
Birthday off, paid
We’d love to celebrate with you, but that can wait. Your birthday is your time to spend as you wish, so take the day off, paid, as a little gift from us.
Gala dinner and awards
Our Big Event in the summer is the highlight of our year – a gala awards dinner with great food, live music and the chance to recognise outstanding achievements.
A packed social diary
From wine tastings to theatre trips, we enjoy regular socials, not forgetting our Christmas party, compliments of the boss!
We aim to create a better everyday life, both now and for the future, so if you pay into a pension, we’ll match it at 4%.
Learning and development
We love to see individuals grow so we offer a range of learning and development opportunities including our own ‘lunch and learn’ sessions every fortnight.
Competitive pay reviews
Our colleagues’ success is our success and vice versa. Everyone has the opportunity to achieve a set 4% annual increase in pay based on their own personal performance and that of the company.
LIFE AT THE PROFESSIONAL FUNDRAISER
We love coming to work - knowing our work has purpose and truly makes a difference might be what gets us out of bed in the morning, but it’s the camaraderie of our colleagues, anecdotes over a good cup of tea and that sense of belonging that keep us coming back for more.
