Why Work For Concern Worldwide
Why Work For Us
Concern Worldwide is a non–governmental, international, humanitarian organisation dedicated to the reduction of suffering and working towards the ultimate elimination of extreme poverty in the world’s poorest countries.
Concern’s mission is to help people living in extreme poverty achieve major improvements in their lives, by work with the poor themselves, and with local and international partners who share this vision, to create just and peaceful societies where the poor can exercise their fundamental rights. Concern engages in long term development work, responds to emergency situations, and seeks to address the root causes of poverty through Development Education and Advocacy work.
In order to succeed in implementing and successfully completing its programs, it is essential that Concern has long term, ongoing, regular support that can be depended upon. A crucial part of the sourcing of this regular support is the work of Concern Direct Dialogue.
Established in 2001, Concern Direct Dialogue is Ireland’s longest established In House Direct Dialogue Fundraising team.
Concern Direct Dialogue is the public face of Concern, whether you are representing Concern on the Street or Door to Door. You will be, in some cases, the first direct contact that donors will have with the organisation. You and how you professionally represent Concern will begin a relationship with that individual that could last for many years. When you become part of our team, you become the important link that engages people who want to support Concern’s work, to help the people who need Concern’s support the most.
By becoming part of the award winning fundraising department of Ireland’s largest charity, you will play a crucial role in securing the regular support Concern Worldwide needs in order to achieve its goals. In addition to this, you will also –
- Receive excellent initial and ongoing training from experienced and professional Team Leaders under the guidance of our Fundraising Development Team.
- Build a career in which you can develop skills in the areas of team work, people management, self motivation and positive influencing and communication.
- Have access to excellent opportunities to progress both within the Direct Dialogue team or in other areas of Concern Worldwide.
We offer all of our Fundraisers a guaranteed hourly rate of pay and a fun, dynamic and fast paced work environment with a strong support network and a culture of team work and development.
