Role Descrition for Poppy Appeal Organiser for The Royal British Legion

The opportunity:

Are you looking for your first job in the charity sector?  This is an unpaid role, but for anyone wanting to work in the charity sector this would be an ideal way to gain experience in fundraising and volunteer management with one of the most respected and established charities around. This is an invaluable role that enables The Royal British Legion to continue their work helping thousands of Service people in need every year.

You would be responsible for ordering poppy stocks, co-ordinating a team of collectors, receiving the collections, banking Poppy money and completing Poppy paperwork.

Can you or a team of friends help keep the Appeal growing to help our Armed Service family?

The work is fun, worthwhile, rewarding and a great addition to your C.V.

The organisation:

The Royal British Legion's mission is to be the No.1 provider of welfare, comradeship, representation and Remembrance for the Armed Forces community. 'Shoulder to shoulder with all who serve', we aim to ensure that the Armed Forces Community - both those serving and veterans as well as their families - get the transition and through-life support they need and the recognition they deserve.
