Fundraising Consultants

(NOC 5124)


These comments apply to the career grouping of Writing, Translating and Public Relations Professionals, which includes Fundraising Consultants.

Job opportunities should result mainly from the need to replace professionals in public relations and communications who will be retiring, but also from employment increase. In addition, other people in this occupation will be vacating their positions to move on to jobs as journalists (NOC 5123), advertising account executives (NOC 1122) and college instructors and university professors (NOC 4131 and NOC 4121, respectively), or to be promoted to management positions (among others, NOC 0611, sales, marketing and advertising managers, and NOC 0512, managers - publishing, motion pictures, broadcasting and performing arts).

Because there is a relatively large pool of candidates in this occupation, competition for jobs will remain lively, despite the good growth rate anticipated for the next few years.
