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 team is responsible for growing financial donations and commercial income that allow Pride in London to continue to grow the event and its support of the LGBTQI+ community. You will be part of a team that is responsible for generating high levels of income. One of the key funding streams is through the sale of stalls for various organisations to interact with attendees across the footprint of the day of Pride.

Your new volunteer role

We are looking to recruit at least two new Fundraising Events Managers.

Reporting into the Director of Fundraising, you will be responsible for:-

  • Working with our Senior Fundraising Managers to support fundraising events for Pride In London;
  • Building relationships with establishments that support pride and hold events on our behalf;
  • Attending fundraising events and representing Pride In London;
  • Coordinating volunteers for and at fundraising events;
  • Supporting and helping manage our tin placement programme;
  • Ensuring fundraising materials are delivered for events and then returned;
  • Selling merchandise;
  • Cash handling and banking; and
  • Various other ad hoc responsibilities that may arise from time to time.

The role requires a commitment of around 3 - 4 hours per week which may increase as Pride in London gets closer. You may need to be available to attend meetings at evenings and weekends. You will be supported by three team heads.

Please note this role us not for street fundraising but for events fundraising organised by Pride in London and our partners.

Who you are

We are looking for someone who is outgoing, comfortable and confident with working in big groups and comfortable with busy crowds and being assertive. You will have good communication and organizational skills, and confident in delivering excellent customer service.

You will have an interest or experience in fundraising, enthusiasm for the role and willing to get ‘stuck in’ with the team. Experience with fundraising and events, or experience in customer service (hospitality, catering etc.) would be useful.

What you'll get from Pride In London

  • A friendly and welcoming induction course and a variety of training that’s offered throughout the year.
  • Meaningful leadership experience.
  • An opportunity to get new and relevant professional experience.
  • A chance to broaden your professional network.
  • Play an important part in delivering the Pride in London event.

Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!


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.
