Telephone Fundraiser

Be a part of our growing team

Do you care deeply about the world we live in? Do you believe in the power of meaningful conversations to bring about real change? Are you energetic, empathetic, passionate and a good deal determined? If so, you likely have the skills to join us as our new Telephone Fundraiser!


Who we are

Established in Brighton in 2017, Purity Fundraising excels in raising crucial funds for some of the UK’s leading charities and NGOs and we’re looking to add to our ever-growing team of likeminded people. We believe what truly sets us apart is our commitment to facilitating real conversations that not only drive success but ensure a great experience for both our supporters and fundraisers alike. We want our fundraisers to feel supported and we strive to create an environment that fosters passion and flexibility.

“I love the flexibility that being a fundraiser gives to me. Choosing my own hours means I can organise my schedule to give time to do what I need to do so I am free to have great conversations and raise vital funds for so many good causes. I don’t know of any other job that offers this flexibility.”

  • Salary: £12.00 per hour. 12% holiday pay is added to the hourly rate, bringing it up to £13.44
