Applications open for student telephone fundraising team!

We are currently recruiting for student callers to work on our Autumn 2022 Telephone Fundraising campaign. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a friendly team in which you can build your skills, make a difference, and gain fundraising experience. Applications can be submitted through our online form.

If you’re an enthusiastic, reliable, team player who is comfortable speaking over the phone then we’d love to hear from you!

As a telephone fundraiser you will call Bristol graduates to discuss what’s new at the University, what they’ve been up to since leaving Bristol, answer any questions they may have, and ask for a charitable donation. It’s an important and rewarding job. In 2021/22 our team of student callers raised more than £160,000 for Student Scholarships.
