About Switchback

Switchback is an award-winning charity helping young Londoners to find a way out of the justice system and make real-lasting change in their lives. We provide intensive one-to-one support either side of the prison gate alongside real-work training after release, supporting 18-30 year-old men (Trainees) to build a stable life they can be proud of. Established in 2008 in the heart of East London, we provide one thing for our Trainees: a consistent, transformative relationship lasting as long as it takes. And it works: Switchback Trainees are five times less likely to reoffend than other offenders (9% vs 49%).

What we are looking for

We are looking for a bright, individual who loves working with precision and has energy and a great sense of humour, to join our busy and dedicated team.

The Fundraising Officer role will provide an opportunity for you to build on your already superb administration skills and develop your ability to build relationships and communicate confidently about Switchback to a wide range of audiences. The successful candidate will need to be a self-starter with amazing attention to detail and excellent communication skills who is also confident and flexible. You will be an experienced administrator who loves showing initiative, and who wants to develop within a small fundraising function as part of a growing, impactful organisation with big ambitions.

If you are someone looking to play a vital part in an impactful, values-led organisation doing meaningful work to help young men live completely different lives, we’d like to hear from you!
