As a Collection Box Coordinator, you will play a valuable role in generating much needed funds for the Hospice, and in promoting the work of the Hospice in your local community. Last year static collection boxes raised just under £30,000 for the Hospice. You will join our team of volunteer coordinators in locating new areas for static collection boxes and also helping to collect and replace existing static collection boxes.

We currently have 3 volunteers who each manage a specific geographical patch within Birmingham/Sandwell. As our number of static boxes grow, this role will be key in supporting our existing team to manage their patches and also source new locations for static collection boxes.

The Fundraising Projects Officer will be on hand to offer support and advice where needed.

You will…

  • Identify new locations for static collection boxes, focusing on a targeted area each month as determined by the static box team
  • Support our other volunteer coordinators to collect and replace static collection boxes in locations across Birmingham and Sandwell
  • Return static collection boxes to the Hospice to be counted
  • Update our collection box database as required
  • Play a vital role in supporting your local Hospice
  • Act as a local representative for Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice

Will the role suit me? YES, if you are

  • Enthusiastic & cheerful with a positive attitude
  • Reliable & trustworthy 
  • Good with people and enjoy interacting with the public 
  • Respectful of diversity 
  • A competent driver with a full UK driving licence and use of a car 
  • Knowledgeable about the geography of the Birmingham area (this is not essential) 
  • Confident with basic computer skills (i.e. excel databases and emails) 
  • Passionate about helping families in your local community
