As a charity we provide and subsidise services that support some of our communities most vulnerable residents. This includes older people, children/young people with disabilities and those who live with dementia. Our work touches the lives of thousands of people across Worthing and the surrounding area, and we are hoping to increase our network of Collection tin coordinators to help make a real difference to people's lives.

The aim of our Collection tin coordinator is to service a network of locations which hold our collection boxes and ensure that the tins are swapped on a rolling basis and returned to Guild Care’s Fundraising Team. We will supply you with empty tins and so you have a ready supply on hand. You would also scout new locations for the placement of collection tins and on occasions collect or place tins as communicated by the fundraising team.

The role is flexible and will allow you to do as little or as much as you feel able to. Not only will you be helping to raise vital funds, but you will also be helping to spread awareness of the valuable work we do.

Main Duties

  • Ensure all collection tins are swapped and returned at least once a year.
  • Contact tin holders on a 3-month rolling basis and ask how they are doing.
  • Collect or place tins with newly sourced holders.
  • Communicate any issues to the fundraising team or community champion.
  • Spread the word about Guild Care and the work we do.
  • You will be an important part of the fundraising team.
