About us

As an ethical family business Burden and Burden works in partnership with local hospices and national charities to help them generate long-term funding to pay for the care and support of patients and their families.


About the role

Burden and Burden’s canvassers are directly responsible for helping local hospices and national charities raise the funds they need.


We canvass door-to-door to sign-up people to play in weekly prize draws which help charities reach their fundraising targets.


What we are looking for from you

  • We want people who are prepared to work hard in all weathers and who are comfortable with door-to-door sales
  • We do not use pushy sales people. It is essential that the reputation of the charities that we work with is not damaged

  • Basic salary of £15,000 pa for a 37-hour week
