How can I get a job in Corporate / Community Fundraising? I have a sales background?

By Fundraising, I mean professionally, either Corporate or Community. I have a strong background in B2B sales, thus I can see myself fitting into Corporate Fundraising role especially. It seems to be one of those jobs where they always want previous Fundraising experience, but there must be opportunities for someone with my background, mustn’t there?
I am based in Edinburgh, so UK relevant answers would be very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

    These sort of jobs are advertised in Third Sector (magazine and website) and the Guardian on a Wednesday (also website). The best way to gain experience is to do some volunteer fundraising – your sort of skills would be very useful, but you need to understand the voluntary sector as it is a lot different to the corporate world.

    professions abroad are certainly an exciting idea, but you have to be really watchful of the law-related implications, if you don’t do your research right, there can be nasty conseqences! The resource in the box below resolves these problems because it shows how to make a living from Google, and you can do that anywhere in the world!
