    BMRSG needs a co-ordinator for its fund raising team. He or she need not be a fundraiser because the team has most of the necessary skills. The co-ordinator needs to guide and supervise the various fund raising activities and support the volunteers managing these, set goals, create and maintain a calendar of events and make sure that activities happen on time, also coordinate with and inform the BMRSG committee and where necessary the social media manager.
    A person with proven project management or co-ordination experience would be suitable.Read more
