Job description, responsibilities and duties
We are Bator Tabor (Camp of Courage), a regional Central European non-profit organization, serving thousands of seriously ill children since 2001. In 2019, we reached 2200 children with our free recreational therapy programs in Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary. We are headquartered in Budapest, Hungary, and have been operating in Poland for the past 10 years. We are looking for an energetic, whole-hearted, hands-on candidate to strengthen our fundraising activities and events in Warsaw, Poland. Proven experience in events, account /project management or sales would be an ideal candidate.
Our campers referred to Bátor Tábor as a “parallel, nicer world”, “dream come true” or a “place where miracles happen.” We are a proud member of SeriousFun Children's Network and we offer much more than just a few days off the daily illness-fighting routine in hospitals.
Serious illness often isolates the child from their friends, disrupts the usual family life and damages the carefree childhood with fear and loss of self-confidence. Bátor Tábor is here to provide healing experiences that result in a long-lasting positive boost on child's self-evaluation, confidence, inner strength and courage to keep going and to keep fighting. All that packaged in a fun summer getaway in a medically safe environment where everything is possible and no disease impedes you from living your best life and have tons of laughter.
