Do you have some experience of working in a charity, fundraising or events environment, plus a real desire to learn more about community and events and develop a career in fundraising? Then join Shelter as a Mass Participation Coordinator – Challenge Events and you could soon be playing a vital role at the heart of our Community and Events team, managing Shelter’s participation in some of the UKs leading challenge events.

About Shelter

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.

We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.

About the team

This role sits within our Mass Participation team, which supports participants in challenge events organised by third parties (e.g., the London Marathon) and bespoke Shelter events (e.g., Walk for Home, Facebook Challenge).

We’re part of Community and Events, which in turn is part of a wider department – the Income Generation directorate – which focuses on a variety of types of fundraising. The team is welcoming, supportive, and keen to meet you. We work hard but try to have fun as well. We also passionately believe in developing our people via our Learning & Development programme and external opportunities. In short, there’s room to progress, both within the team and the wider directorate.

About the role

This Co-ordinator role sits in the Mass Participation team. We support participants in mass participation challenge events – both those organised by third parties (e.g. London Marathon) and bespoke Shelter events that we develop (e.g. Walk for Home, Facebook Challenge).

Across the charity sector, fundraising through challenge events was hugely impacted over the last three years because of Covid-19 and the cost-of-living crisis. At Shelter, we’ve consolidated our events offering to supporters and are investing in growing our portfolio, aiming to achieve growth in the coming years across challenge and bespoke events.

We’ve seen an increase in participation levels and income from third party events over the last 18 months, with sell out teams of up to 400 runners in our events. We are ambitious and seek to significantly grow our income and supporter numbers and are looking for someone who can join us to be part of the team that makes that happen. This is a great opportunity for someone with experience in working in a charity, fundraising or events environment to learn more about community and events, take on the responsibility of overseeing and implementing events with the support of the Senior Mass Participation Manager, and develop a career in fundraising.

The main objective of the Co-ordinator role will be to deliver challenge and bespoke events, from planning and set up, pulling together financial budgets to meeting supporter recruitment and income targets through to the delivery of event day and evaluating results.

This role will primarily focus on delivering our participation in third party events (including the London Landmarks Half Marathon, the Great North Run and the Hackney Half Marathon). There will be opportunities to broaden experience and support the wider Community & Events team during busy times, and coordinators are expected to be flexible and work across the wider mass participation portfolio when required.

About you

Someone who enjoys collaborating and communicating with a variety of people, whether face-to-face, over the phone, by email, letter or via social media channels, you have great attention to detail and a proactive approach to everything you do. If you’ve got experience of managing challenge events for charities or stewarding large volumes (200+) supporters that would be a bonus but is not essential. A basic knowledge of budgeting (for which support will be provided) would also help you quickly gain confidence in the role. Equally important is a positive attitude to learning, a flexible approach and excellent time management skills, along with a willingness to be busy each day and enjoy the variety that brings.
