Good Samaritans across the country could be in with the chance of getting paid to help charities as the Nicest Job in Britain (NJIB) campaign re-launches for its second year.

The Nicest Job in Britain is a charity campaign led by NicestJobs.com – an employer brand showcase platform for the charity sector – and sponsored by online auction platform Givergy.

The Job will see one lucky winner travel the country and help 40 charities over the course of a year; working both on the ground as a volunteer and in their head offices on charity campaigns.

The second year of the campaign kicks off with a global hunt to find the successor to 27-year-old kindness campaigner Luke Cameron from Cheltenham who was dubbed the “Nicest Man In Britain” by the Daily Mail.

Luke was NJIB’s first ever National Philanthropy Manager and is now leading the search for his replacement. The successful applicant will take up the role of National Philanthropy Manager for NicestJobs.com and will be paid a salary of £30,000.

But the real benefit of the role is having the opportunity to travel the country to help 40 different charities; from animal rescue to children’s hospices.

In order to apply, participants should record a 60-second video showcasing why they’re the best person for the job, then visit http://www.nicestjobinbritain.co.uk/the-job/ to submit their application before 16th September.

The primary sponsor of this year’s campaign is Givergy – an award-winning company which offers a range of cutting-edge technology platforms to help charities raise more at fundraising events and online. The company helped raise over £25 million for more than 1,200 incredible charitable causes in 2015 alone.

Jon Douglas, Founder of Givergy, said: “We’re so proud to be sponsoring the Nicest Job in Britain and it’s been fantastic to work with Luke on this incredible project. We’re looking forward to watching the video entries from hopefuls across the world keen for the chance to take over his role – I’m sure there will be lots of inspiring applications.”

In 2015, Luke joined a different charity each week, from small local to large national and used his energy and skills to help and assist the charity in whatever capacity they required.

“The Nicest Job in Britain was incredible,” Luke commented.
