Your Pride In London

Pride in London means many things to many people, it belongs to our community and it belongs to you; come and join the conversation!

Forty-six years since the first Pride march in London, Pride in London has a renewed sense of purpose to highlight the challenges still facing the LGBT+ community today despite progress. We are run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about equality and diversity and are drawn from all walks of life; together we pull off the UK’s biggest free LGBTQ+ community event every year. Pride aims to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow all of our community to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing.

Around 150 people volunteer year-round to help us deliver what has become a world-class Pride. We welcome applications from everybody, and are especially keen to attract new volunteers from the BAME, Trans, Bi, Non-binary and Queer communities who we would love to see more widely represented in our organisation.

Your new team

Our Fundraising team is key to making Pride in London happen. The event is expensive to run and the show couldn’t go on without their efforts encouraging generous donations from thousands of individuals every year. The team work tirelessly year round across a range of activities from running glamourous events like our Gala Dinner, to partnering with community groups or simply hitting the streets with a Pride in London fundraising bucket.

The Fundraising Events team is responsible for generating financial donations and increasing supporter engagement which enable Pride in London to continue to grow the event and its support of the LGBTQI+ communities.

Your new role

Reporting into the Deputy Director of Fundraising and Retail, you will be responsible for orchestrating, strengthening and expanding our portfolio of physical and virtual Fundraising Events, which covers Challenge Events (e.g. Pride in London Boxing, 10k Run, Pride Triathlon etc), Community Events (e.g. Proudly Talented, Pride in London Quiz, Bingo etc) as well as Do-Your-Own-Thing (DYOT) initiatives organised by members of the general public on behalf of Pride in London. You will play a pivotal role in growing our supporter base, deepening loyalty and increasing income generation.

The role requires a commitment of around 4-6 hours per week which may increase as Pride in London approaches. You may need to be available to attend meetings at evenings and weekends (currently all meetings are being held virtually).

Our Culture

Our volunteers are driven and passionate about what they do. Putting on one of London's largest one-day events requires dedication and perseverance. 

Although a lot of our work is completed remotely, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet with your team and others throughout the year to not only plan what's ahead but to socialise too. 

We're looking for enthusiastic people to join the organisation so we can provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community.
