Your Pride In London 

Pride in London is wholly run by a group of volunteers who are passionate about equality and diversity. We are a not-for-profit organisation, and any surplus funds we raise are used to support the LGBT+ community and improve the event.

Together, we run the UK’s biggest, most diverse pride, and our job is to make sure we provide a platform for every part of London’s LGBT+ community to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues and campaign for the freedoms that will allow them to live their lives on a genuinely equal footing. 

Pride in London includes people of every race and faith, whether disabled or able-bodied, and all sexualities and genders including lesbian, gay, bisexual, asexual, queer, questioning, intersex, trans*, genderqueer, gender variant or non-binary as well as straight and cis allies. 

Around 250 people volunteer year-round to help us deliver what has become a world-class Pride.  It is our intention for Pride in London to best represent all parts of our community and we’ll do this by welcoming more women and those from the BAME, trans and non-binary communities into the organisation. All applications are important to us so if you’d like to be part of the future of Pride in London please register your interest or share this opportunity with your network. 

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 glamorous 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

The role involves acquiring prizes for the Gala Dinner (and other special events if needed) and assisting in table sales for special events. The role requires good Microsoft Excel skills, good communication and confidence.

Previous experience of acquiring gifts/donations and sales experience are desirable but not essential. Experience of using auction systems are also desirable but not essential. You will be confident, outgoing and friendly in order to be able to acquire the necessary prizes.

The role will require contribution all year round of an average 2 hours per week, with increased commitment in the last two months leading up to the Gala Dinner and for a few weeks after, of approx. 6 hours per week.

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.

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.
