CASE STUDY "I started my career as a Face to Face fundraiser, I took to it quickly even though I had no experience. I quickly became a Team Leader where I was given a team to coach and support. My pay increased and my interest in a career in fundraising grew. My network of contacts quickly grew and I heard of a marketing and communications role at Oxfam. I applied and got the job. I oversaw a large budget and managed a number of national fundraising campaigns including TV appeal for the charity. If I didn't jump at the chance to fundraise, I wouldn't be where I am now. The fundraising network is tightly linked, progression is inevitable. If you genuinely want to make a different to vulnerable people then become a fundraiser."
