In a recent Charity Pulse survey undertaken by Third Sector and Birdsong Charity Consulting, figures show that among fundraisers job satisfaction has risen a tenth (10%) in the last year, now totalling three fifths (65%) of employees who are satisfied with their job.

In contrast, fewer than half (45%) believe they receive sufficient training / development to do their job well, as opposed to more than three fifths (65%) in 2008. Additionally the number of individuals likely to recommend their charity as an employer dropped – large charities came off worst seeing figures decline by a fifth (21%) from 2007.

Job security overall has risen 3% between 2012/13, yet an increase of over a tenth (17%) can be seen from employees who work for a medium size charity (between 50 to 200 staff).

Overall, staff are happier about their levels of pay, with half (50%) saying their salaries are competitive – seven percentage points higher than in 2012.

Frances Hurst Co-founder of Birdsong said:

"Redundancies seem to be easing off compared with the past three years. There has also been a significant uplift in internal communication. Misinformation makes things worse in uncertain times, so it's good that more people feel they're being kept in the loop."
