The Children’s Trust Champions: Team Leader

Want to help make a difference to the lives of children with brain injury? At The Children’s Trust we’re searching for innovative, passionate and committed students to take the lead and help shape our new Champion programme.

Your mission

We need you to raise awareness of The Children’s Trust and the amazing work we do to support children with brain injury, by running fundraising events, volunteering and inspiring students to engage with our work.

How can you achieve it?

To achieve your mission as a Children’s Trust Champion we’ll need you to do the 4 following steps. Each step has a huge impact on how we provide support to children with brain injury. With our support;
  1. Recruit a team of Children’s Trust Champions made up of dedicated students who want to help with fundraising and volunteering.
  2. Run at least 1 fundraising event a term on your campus. Raising at least £500 in your first year. (We’d love to be your RAG Charity of the Year!)
  3. Volunteer at a Team Challenge event (this could involve volunteering directly with the children, within our charity shops or at one of our large fundraising events).  
  4. Run a Donation Day on campus to help stock up our 20 different charities shops across Surrey.

You’ll need to be:

  • Proactive and enthusiastic.
  • Confident to lead a team and empowering students to get involved.
  • Organised, dedicated and committed.
  • Passionate about improving the lives of children with brain injury.
  • Willing to volunteer at least 4 hours of your time each week during term 1 and 2 (this will be flexible around your studies)

What’s in it for me?

  • A fantastic induction to your role and on-going guidance from The Children’s Trust.
  • Practical experience in people management, fundraising, organisation and leadership that will look great on your CV.
  • Special consideration for our internships and work experience in the future.
  • Feel amazing about making a difference to the lives of children with brain injury.
