Ensuring that I represent the company in a positive light to applicants, and that we have a steady stream of new staff at all time.

Pete - Liverpool

What do you like the most about working with HOME?

I like that here I can truly be myself and bring my whole self to work, rather than feeling like I have to be a complete different person during work time.

None if I am being honest.

Jordyn - Dundee

What do you like the most about working with HOME?

The sense of achievement almost every day, achieving your own goals and helping others achieve theirs.

What are the challenges you face in your role?

The skewed perception of fundraising from the outside can definitely taint the amazing things we do, but when you’ve inspired someone to donate to a charity out of the goodness of their heart it’s hard to think anything but amazing things about what we do.

What would you say to someone who is considering starting a career with HOME?

DO IT, it will change your life.

My first sign-up. I remember thinking: "I've just helped change someone's life. I want to keep on doing this!"

What do you enjoy the most about interacting with the charities we represent?

The sense of privilege and pride at being involved in something worthwhile.

What would you say to someone who is considering starting a career with HOME?

If you like a challenge, and you'd like to help make the world a better place, HOME is definitely the place for you!

Conor - Manchester

Making a difference for the Charities we represent and working with all the wonderful people in HOME’s departments.

Describe HOME in three words.

Warm, professional, ethical

Francesca - Client Services

What was your best day/moment at HOME?

When I received my fundraiser footprint award, even though I had progressed and was working in the London regional office at the time. It was a tangible reminder of what my hard work as a fundraisier had achieved and how much I had raised in the two months I had worked as a fundraiser.

What do you enjoy the most about interacting with the charities we represent?

I love learning about the charities we represent and what they do. It reminds me that beyond the daily tasks, KPIs and statistics, there are actual people (including a loved one) or in some cases animals that are benefitting from our work and that we are contributing to make this world a better place... as cheesy as that may sound!

What would you say to someone who is considering starting a career with HOME?

Fundraising is not an easy job, you definitely need to have a passion for it. But if you do decide to work for HOME, I can guarantee you will achieve a level of gratification you will not find elsewhere; I have never worked for a company that encourages progression as much as HOME, and if you are looking to make a soul-fulfilling career out of a fundraising job, this is a place to be.
