We are expanding our team with two NEW roles with flexible working options. Join us and you can make a real difference to the lives of railway workers

Railway Benefit Fund (RBF) is a benevolent charity supporting railway workers and their families. We offer a range of grants and services to all those who turn to us and are here for anyone working in rail who is facing tough times.

Fundraising Officer

We are looking for a Fundraising Officer to join our Fundraising team and work across all fundraising and engagement activities with a focus on increasing income from individual giving. This will involve encouraging people across the rail industry to donate regularly, either directly or through payroll giving.

Don’t worry if you don’t have all the experience – a lot will be learnt on the job. As long as you are confident and personable with strong communication skills. You must be motivated, keen to learn and demonstrate initiative when taking on new responsibilities and challenges. You must be computer literate and able to use word, excel and PowerPoint – database experience would be an advantage.

Ideally, we are looking for someone with experience of working for a charity or alternatively within an HR, admin or finance team – maybe you have experience from within the rail industry?

We are a national charity with a head office in Crewe and you would be expected to be in the office at least once a week. We are open to part time or full time hours, and/or flexible working around school hours and childcare and we fully support remote working.
