Open Fundraising


No comments



Sofii’s 2016 I Wish I’d Thought Of That event is almost upon us and we’re thrilled that tickets have sold out – we can’t wait to see you all there.


Hang on! I missed out on tickets!


No problem, we’ll be live streaming the whole event. So even if you can’t join us on the day, you can hear from 18 of the sector’s best and brightest as they share fundraising ideas that inspire them. So just sit back and soak up the learning.


Ooh, jazzy. So can my whole team watch?


Yes they can! We’ll be streaming to YouTube so you can watch at your desks, or turn your boardroom into a mini theatre (popcorn optional). And we’ll be uploading footage at a later date so you can catch up on anything you miss.


Great! Where do we watch?


Just check back here on Wednesday for the live link! Happy viewing!

We’re looking for a new intelligent and enthusiastic Junior Copywriter to join our Studio team.


We need someone who is eager to learn, is capable of picking up existing projects, taking direction and delivering engaging, emotive copy.


You will have examples of well-written, effective work, demonstrating your ability to take projects from conception through to completion. You’ll be full of ideas and capable of working successfully with art directors, designers and other copywriters – sometimes under the tightest of time constraints.


We’re looking for someone who can hit the ground running, who can grow and develop and become a valuable team member. Some experience of working in an agency and an interest in fundraising is required.


Salary dependent on experience. Email CVs with a short covering letter detailing why you’d be right for Open, along with three examples of relevant work to with ‘Junior Copywriter’ in the subject header.


We look forward to hearing from you!

We take our work seriously here at Open, but when we’re not busy trying to make the world a better place, we’re engaged in a right old gallimaufry of creative endeavours. Writing, drawing, painting, crochet – to name but a few. We also have some very talented musicians lurking in our midst.


Our brilliant and bearded Creative Director, Matt, has recorded an album of songs he has written and recorded himself (with a band, in a recording studio and EVERYTHING) and it’s extraordinary – in the best sense of that word. He’s supporting the release of the album, What’s Left, and the first single, Lidl Briton, with some great behind-the-scenes material from the recording, and we’ve all been doing our bit helping to spread the word.


And Matt’s not just talented, he’s good, too. He’s donating the proceeds of the downloading/streaming of Lidl Briton to Barnardo’s, to support their work with young carers. He has more charitable plans, coming soon.


To say that we’re proud of him is an understatement.


Please watch, read (Crutch Records on Facebook and and share. Great music, and a great cause.
