About Pebblebeach Fundraising

Come and meet the team

If you love what you do, odds are you’ll be a whole lot better at it.

Our team is made up of people who love sharing their fundraising skills and experience with our charity partners. And, we try hard to be a great place to work, in the heart of our favourite city. That combination makes it easy to love our work.

We’re a special mix.

Our office music choices are sometimes challenging. We’re 50/50 on coffee and tea. We know Friday afternoons are better with a gin and tonic. Oh, and we have dogs.

Our city

There are many reasons why we love our city. It’s a great place to live with fantastic food, music and nightlife. We’re 5 minutes’ walk from the beach, 10 minutes’ drive from the South Downs.

But perhaps what we love most is that Brighton is a place to meet welcoming, fun, diverse and inspiring people. Brighton doesn’t do average.
