Career development event for community fundraisers

Thursday 27th April 2017, 4.00-5.30pm

The Castle, 34-35 Cowcross Street, Farringdon, London EC1M 6DB

Institute of Fundraising - Community Fundraising Special Interest Group, with Harris Hill, specialists in charity and not for profit recruitment


What are the career development options for community fundraisers? How can you advance to a more senior level? And what if you're looking to move into a different field?

This Thursday you can join members of the IoF's Community Fundraising special interest group to explore these questions and more, with an interactive workshop led by Harris Hill's own community fundraising specialist Dawn Ballard.

Dawn spent seven years in community fundraising herself before moving into recruitment (just one example of a career change that might not be obvious but can certainly be done!), while as a recruiter she's secured new roles for literally hundreds of community fundraisers, at all stages of their career and from all corners of the country.

So she's perfectly placed to understand the demands of community fundraising and the questions you may be facing when it comes to career development.

But with extensive first-hand knowledge of how others have developed their careers in community fundraising or different fields altogether, she can also advise on the options that may be open to you and how to improve your prospects of progressing within/into your chosen career.

In addition, you'll hear from a selection of IoF speakers currently working in the industry as they share their top tips for making yourself the best fundraiser you can be, and have the opportunity to join everyone for drinks and networking at the bar.

All community fundraisers are welcome but places are limited so click here for tickets and full details.

Tickets are free for IoF members and £5 plus booking fee for non-members.
