Make A Difference With Charity Link

Charity Link deliver fundraising and awareness campaigns for the charity sector through their passionate, professional and ethical way of working, and are seeking multiple Field Sales Representatives for their Northern England territory to fundraise on behalf of some of the UK's best-known charities. We spoke with one of their existing ex-military employees...

Q: Can you give us a brief overview of your military career?

A: I went into the Forces (Marines) when I was 18 years old and served for 20 years, in which time I worked my way up to Sergeant.

Q: What made you chose a career with Charity Link?

A: I stumbled into this career if I’m completely honest. I bumped into a fundraiser in my local town centre and started talking to them. I have always had a passion for animals so this seemed like a good option for me to go down. After 10 years I’m still here and enjoy my role.

Q: What skills and experience from your time in the military have helped you the most in your role with Charity Link?

A: I have a sense of confidence from the armed forces and I don’t easily get flustered - this helps when motivating me to hit my targets daily.

Q: What do you enjoy most about your role and working with the company?

A: I enjoy the challenge of hitting my targets, it motivates me to keep going. There is also a feelgood factor with this role as you know that you are making a difference to the cause we are representing.

Q: What qualities do you think ex-military personnel can bring to the team that are different to those possessed by civilian candidates?

A: The principle ones are self-discipline and focus.

Q: Why should other Service Leavers consider a career with Charity Link?

A: Because it’s such a rewarding career to be in.
