    Fundraiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Home Fundraising.

    Interview

    Group interview for the first stage. Then training on a particular charity with a 1:1 to test you on the training. It's pretty easy and straightforward. It's important to just be yourself and come across as a fun person.

    Fundraiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Coventry, RI (US)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Home Fundraising (Coventry, RI (US)).

    Interview

    The interview was almost too relaxed. It was a group interview where interviewees turned up in very casual clothes.
    We were not asked questions, but were given a presentation about the company and two activities.

    I passed and was put through to Initial Assessment which was from 10 to 5. We were left to ourselves in a room unsupervised for the accumulation of around 3 hours.

    The best thing about this company is the other fundraisers you will meet. In my opinion, the interview and training isn't great.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Home Fundraising (Newcastle upon Tyne, England) in November 2017.

    Interview

    group interview and then a 2 day assessment they get your details and then you spend the rest of the day reading from a sheet for at least 4 hours after the day is done they ask you to come back tomorrow only for you to read the same crap for another 3 hours. you try and say the same crap for at least 7 hours but it would of been longer. I refused the job because it bored me stupid. I would NOT recommend this job unless you love the sound of your own voice. This company has a very high staff turnover which is ALWAYS a very BAD sign they treat you like cattle. Never accept a job where a company has a very high staff turnover.

    Fundraiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nottingham, England
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Home Fundraising (Nottingham, England) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Group interview. No need for a CV at all. Although the interview was to assess who would be confident and enthusiastic enough to engage with the (often angry) public on their doorstep, it would appear they let almost anyone join. So many people could barely speak in front of a room of 15 of us, let alone the public!

    Fundraiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Liverpool, England
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Home Fundraising (Liverpool, England) in May 2017.

    Interview

    You'll get invited for an interview. They will not tell you that, but it's a group seminar rather than interview.
    You'll listen to an enthusiastic employee talk about company policies and about how much bonuses you can get, all of the good stuff. They will ask you to perform a simple interview with a person next to you and ask them about themselves. Super easy, if you speak communicative english there is no way to fail.
    After the interview you will be innacurately told that "you have the job", but you don't unless you attend and succeed at 2 days of in-house training, which consists of listening to more "practical" advice on how to fundraise, writing and presenting your pitch to a senior staff member. After that you get a job.
