New Fundraising Experience (NFE) is looking for you!

We are: South Africa’s newest and best F2F Fundraising agency. To work for NFE is to represent some of the finest charitable organizations in the world. To work for NFE is to give children loving homes; it’s to protect Rhinos; it’s to fight for children’s rights; it is to make our world a better place in countless ways. To continue and expand their work, our clients need to be talking to individuals and inspiring them to become regular donors, committing to give a small amount each month to support the work in question.

You are: passionate; enthusiastic; a persuasive communicator, and, above all, blessed with limitless energy and enough resilience to overcome any challenge. The role will involve you working in shopping malls, supermarkets, events, anywhere that we can find people for you to inspire. When you have found them, that’s when your enthusiasm and passion will come out.

 Maybe you are an experienced direct sales professional looking for a new challenge?
 Maybe you have been involved in F2F in the past, but want to work proudly in a team that will support you in becoming the best fundraiser you can be?
 Maybe you know that experience at the cutting edge of Fundraising will be an excellent step into a career within the NGO sector?
 Maybe you are seeking a new challenge?

Whatever your reason for reading this far, you won’t be afraid of hard work or targets – tough ones too; but your hard work will be well rewarded with a generous basic salary, open ended commission, flexible working, the chance to better yourself every day and work with a fantastic team of like-minded people, all of whom contribute to making South Africa the best it can be, one conversation at a time.

NOTE: Our relationships with our not-for-profit clients are important to us so if you are working for another in-house F2F team we suggest you discuss your intention to apply with your manager.

To apply, please email your CV and Covering Letter to lebogang@newfundraising.co.za quoting “Fundraiser” in the subject line. We will then contact short-listed candidates with more information.
