Also Listing:

Forum for the Future is looking for a motivated individual to join the Fundraising team as an intern.  

At Forum we aim to create change towards sustainability by transforming organisations and the sectors they work in, for the benefit of people and the environment. We partner with a global audience of professionals working in business, the public sector and civil society. We are also a registered charity, reliant on philanthropic funding to support our work.

Our Fundraising team is looking for an intern, based in our London office, to work part-time or full-time over a period of three months. The fundraising function was set up in 2015 to help diversify Forum’s funding base through securing income from trusts and foundations.

This internship is a fantastic opportunity to experience working in a progressive NGO and to contribute to fundraising for our cutting edge work in sustainable development through, helping to research and identify funders, support the Fundraising Manager to maintain relationship management systems, develop funding propositions and build a pipeline of fundraising opportunities.

Tasks include:

  • Desk-based research: identifying and profiling prospective trusts and foundations
  • Data management: using Salesforce to update contact information, create funder profiles and build funding opportunity reports
  • Editorial tasks: writing, proofreading and supporting funding applications
  • Administration: various tasks relating to internal fundraising procedures, event planning and management and working with other Forum teams.

This is a great opportunity to gain experience working in a small, fast-paced team at the heart of an organisation driving for change. That’s why the person we have in mind will have:

  • An interest in sustainable development and/or trust and foundation fundraising, with an appetite to learn more
  • An ability to carry out research with limited management
  • Experience of working with a CRM database (Salesforce or other)
  • A high level of literacy and an ability to write clearly
  • Excellent ICT skills, including in Word, PowerPoint and Excel
  • Ability to follow instructions, work independently and be self-motivating
  • Ability to organise and prioritise work and meet deadlines
  • A willingness to pitch in with a variety of tasks within a small team
  • A commitment to the values and mission of Forum for the Future

This internship is for three months on a part-time or full-time basis. The internship is unpaid, with lunch expenses up to £5 a day and travel within London Zone 1-6 reimbursed.
