Be a part of the fundamental team working hands on in the very heart of the Radio Forth’s Cash for Kids Mission Christmas appeal.

Mission Christmas is our biggest and highest profile campaign of the year. The Mission Christmas Coordinator is critical to its success. You will be an ambitious self-starter who is obsessed about organisation, prioritisation and detail, keeping a cool head when faced with multiple tasks that all need completing simultaneously. You will be a strong and confident communicator who can lead our team of volunteers and keep internal stakeholders up-to-date with the status of the campaign.

The Mission Christmas Coordinator (Front of House) will be responsible for supporting the Cash for Kids team with the managing and day-to-day running of the Mission Christmas Warehouse. You will be communicating with volunteers, organisations who will collect gifts, fundraisers who are supporting Mission Christmas who may visit the warehouse as well as the Cash for Kids team. You will be meticulous in following processes and keeping all documentation updated.

It's hard work, long hours at times, but it's all to put a smile on the faces of thousands of children who've had a tough time and need to experience some Christmas magic. Last year we provided gifts to over 24,000 children.

You will report into and be supported by the Charity Manager in the running of this campaign but will be expected to work on your own initiative. The hours will be approximately 9.00 a.m. -5.30 p.m. Monday to Friday. Flexibility with working hours is essential as the campaign progresses and gets closer to Christmas.
