					Beatbullying Fundraising Intern Job Description
Beatbullying is the UK’s leading anti-bullying charity. Founded in 1999 we have twice been named
charity of the year in 2005 and again in 2006. We deliver pioneering, innovative and effective
programmes which seek to improve the wellbeing and life chances of vulnerable children and young
people. Our core programme CyberMentors provides a unique online peer mentoring and
professional support service, delivering help and advice in real-time to young people facing issues
around wellbeing, bullying and child on child violence, through a safe bespoke social networking
website.

Building of the successes of CyberMentors we have developed and successfully piloted the ReSync
programme, providing online, real time access to peer and professional support and advice to young
people who are NEET. We are now seeking to roll out this programme across the UK, delivering
ReSync training to help young people overcome their personal barriers to education and
employment and enable them to become positive role models, mentoring their peers who are facing
similar issues.

As part of this expansion we need to strengthen our fundraising team and are looking for a dynamic,
driven intern who is keen to learn about charity fundraising and help us with proposal development,
community based fundraising (challenge events) and corporate partnership development.

You will help to identify new opportunities for raising income through research (online and on the
phone), write proposals for potential funders, and manage discrete income generating projects and
events. You'll need great written and verbal communications skills and be keen to join an innovative,
fast moving organisation. The role is ideal for someone looking to gain an understanding and
experience of the voluntary sector, and develop key skills applicable to a number of different areas
within it.
