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

Reporting into the Director of Fundraising, you will be responsible for overseeing aspects of the fundraising portfolio including challenge events, community fundraising, community partnerships, digital fundraising and on the day face to face fundraising.

The role requires a commitment of around 4 -6 hours per week which may increase as Pride in London gets. You may need to be available to attend meetings at evenings and weekends.

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 with good knowledge of fundraising and its various income streams mainly focused on mass market fundraising. Income and expenditure budgeting and phasing experience and knowledge is essential.

You will have good project management skills, ability to problem solve and have experience of managing staff and volunteers.

Experience working in at least 2 or 3 areas of fundraising and some experience of managing a large portfolio is desirable. Experience of working in the charity sector in several roles is desirable.

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.

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.
