About the opportunity

The role of Online Research Volunteer is brilliant for volunteers that want to be able to give an hour in between their other commitments but still make a great contribution to the BHF. If you enjoy working online from home with a cuppa in hand this is the volunteering opportunity for you. 

You will be supported by a fundraising manager who is local to you and who will provide you with your research tasks. These could include: researching potential partners, clubs and associations for the BHF, drafting letters and emails to send and potentially looking for more opportunities that will help fund our research.  

Why does BHF East Midlands need me? 

Here at British Heart Foundation (BHF) we want to beat heartbreak forever from the world's biggest killers. Heart and circulatory diseases kill 1 in 4 people in the UK and 7 million people are living with heart and circulatory diseases in the UK. With your help we can make connections across our local communities to inspire fundraising activity; funding our research and bringing breakthroughs closer to today. 

What skills and attributes do I need to have? 

  • The ability to work flexibly and independently. 

  • Self-confidence and a proactive approach. 

  • Basic IT skills with access to a computer and email. 

  • A commitment to BHF's values. 

Requirements

This is a remote homebased role supported by the local fundraising manager both remotely and in person when required.
