The recruitment process

Step one:

When you apply, all you’ll need to do is fill in a short online form. 

Step two:

If your application is successful, you’ll be invited to take part in an interview, either in person or via Skype. Interviews will take place between 6-10 February, in various locations around the UK and Ireland.

Step three:

We’ll let you know whether or not your interview was successful. And if it was, you’ll be asked to join us for:

  • 2–5 days of pre-season fundraising work during May half-term and throughout June in your area

  • A 2-day training event in Poole, Dorset on 17-18 June

  • 9–10 week summer campaign in your area, from the end of June to early September.
