Once you have qualified you will manage 6 telephone fundraising campaigns per year.  The role itself is very diverse and ranges from recruiting your own fundraising callers, managing databases, training and supervising teams of up to 40 people and writing reports to identify trends.  You will learn a huge number of skills both during and after your training.


Before Covid, you would have expected to be away from home for 15-17 weeks per year as our telephone campaigns (telethons) traditionally took place onsite at our clients’ institutions. As things currently stand, we are running most of our campaigns remotely with staff members managing the calling sessions from home or the office in Bristol. It is difficult to predict the future, but you would need to expect a mix of remote and onsite telethons, so it would be good if you are happy with both of these aspects of the job role.


You can raise up to £1 million from the campaigns that you would manage each year, which makes for a very rewarding job.


In return for your hard work Buffalo offers a starting salary of £20,000 which will increase to £22,000 following the successful completion of our four to six month training programme. You will receive another rise to £25,500 the following year along with a £1,500 bonus pay-out after 6 telethons, and a further £3,500 bonus pay-out on completion of the scheme (12 telethons).


Our grad scheme benefits include a subsistence package worth over £1,000 a year, flexible working hours, 20 days holiday plus the opportunity to earn on average an additional 24 lieu days for weekend working (12 of which can be sold back to Buffalo if you would prefer to take the money instead), weekend travel bonus, workplace pension, cycle to work scheme and regular staff social events. We also know that starting a new job as a recent graduate can be a tough time for your wallet so we can offer you a £500 advance on your first months pay to help with costs such as a deposit for a flat or a new work wardrobe.


If you are a passionate individual who is looking to make a real difference and learn a huge amount along the way, please email us for details of how to apply for future vacancies within the Herd!
