Good telephone manner? Background in Marketing or Sales? Help us promote this innovative fundraising initiative to local businesses

Marketing / PR volunteer needed for Reading Mencap

Reading Mencap is a small local charity that was founded in 1962 by local parents of children and adults with learning disabilities (LD) and autism.

The aim was to provide support to individuals with learning disabilities and their families might lead a full and active life in their community. We now provide services for children and adults with learning disabilities and their parents and carers.

We are looking for someone to help us promote the Round-Up for Reading scheme to local businesses. This is a scheme in which companies ask their customers to round up their bill to support local charities and the businesses get free publicity from the Reading Lions, who created the scheme.

The role involves researching, emailing and calling businesses, so the candidate needs a good telephone manner. Will need to keep records of contacts made. The candidate will report to the Fundraising Manager and will work remotely so he/she will require a laptop and phone.

Might suit someone with a background in marketing, sales or fundraising.
