Interviewing Community Partnerships Executive

Help for Heroes

One in 4 people in the UK have either served themselves or have a family member or friend who has served, making Help for Heroes a very personal cause for many.
When Bryn Parry, a veteran and eminent cartoonist, and his wife Emma heard in 2007 that people were shouting at wounded veterans at a local public swimming pool, they knew they had to do something. So they started a campaign for dedicated facilities and a movement to change the way we see and support veterans and their loved ones. Over £2M was raised in just 2 months, and Help for Heroes was born.

Help For Heroes is now a national charity with a vision for a society where everyone in the Armed Forces community lives well after service. The charity provides tailored support for physical and mental health to veterans and their families in their homes and communities across the UK.

As part of the community fundraising team, you will work closely with the Community Partnerships Manager on the creation and development of new business opportunities to achieve long term sustainable income from community fundraisers, focusing on 5-figure partnerships. This is an excellent opportunity for someone looking for their next step as a early career fundraiser or those looking to break into the sector. You will join a supportive and collaborative team of nine.
