American Red Cross Donation Department is looking for new partners in European region.

The vacancy available at the moment is "Donation Collector"

Since we receive regular moneyed assistance for our Organisation in checks, money orders, bank wire transfers and even in gifts, be aware that "Donation Collector's duties would include regular cooperation with our Financial Department. Every day we receive a great deal of contribution from thousands of people, but unfortunately do not have enough employees to guarantee that these donations are contributed to the purpose they were meant for in the very beginning of our program.

"Donation Collector" together with our financial missionaries in different regions of EU receives and sends donations to the people in need and furthermore is committed to minimise the chances of any unsolicited use of these funds by any other third party.
