Management team

We're currently hiring for a voluntary role within our management team! If you're interested, please take a look at the job description below and follow the instructions for applying. Good luck!

Funding and Sponsorship Officer

Learning By Heart is an initiative with 2 principal goals: to provide children and adults in the UK with accessible educational support, while in turn helping to widen access to education for young people across the world. ​


We provide online classes in a wide range of subjects, run by volunteer tutors, in exchange for pay-as-you-feel donations to educational charities. Classes are delivered remotely using videoconferencing platforms, so we are able to reach pupils all over the country. Currently, our profits are split 50/50 between CAMFED (the Campaign for Female Education), who work to increase the accessibility of and revolutionise girls’ education in Sub-Saharan Africa, and ECW (Education Cannot Wait), who tackle education provision in humanitarian crises. 


Learning By Heart is currently run by a management team of 6 volunteers. However, as the organisation grows and the responsibilities increase, we are looking to expand the team. We are looking for a new enthusiastic and reliable volunteer funding and sponsorship officer!


Role responsibilities:

  • Search and apply for relevant grants and sponsorship opportunities

  • Develop and manage relationships with external partners, businesses and networks, which may include:

    • Sponsorship of core funding costs (such as DBS checks and safeguarding training for tutors, website and advertising costs)

    • Provision of group language classes in exchange for donations 

    • Any other nature of partnership which you may see fit 

  • Contribute to the development of income and expenditure budgets and to monitor and report regularly on individual events budgets/profits and the future projection of LBH

  • Plan, support and deliver additional fundraising events, campaigns or activities. In the past this has included webinars led by university societies, Q&As for students and interactive language events

  • Attend bi-weekly team meetings, via Zoom.


The role and its responsibilities will evolve as the organisation grows. This is a very flexible role and most activities can be completed whenever you have the time making it a perfect volunteer role alongside other commitments. 

To apply, please send your CV and a short covering letter outlining your experience and reasons for wanting to volunteer with our organisation to
