About City Cancer Challenge (C/CAN):
City Cancer Challenge Foundation (C/Can) supports cities around the world as they work to improve access to equitable, quality cancer care.

- Minimum of 10 years of experience with fundraising/resource mobilisation, ideally in global health, with a relevant donor and stakeholder network.
- Experience in global development, with the ability to navigate the global health discussions.

Are you an experienced major gift fundraising leader looking for your next career move? Come join the Francis Crick Institute, one of Europe's largest biomedical research facilities, in this exciting role as Head of Philanthropy, working in partnership with Cancer Research UK.
Reporting to the Director of Philanthropy, you will lead the development and delivery of our fundraising and campaign strategy for the Crick.
Cancer Research UK (CRUK) is the world's leading independent charity dedicated to cancer research. A substantial proportion of our scientific funding supports our four core research institutes, including the Francis Crick Institute.
The Francis Crick Institute is Europe's largest multi-disciplinary biomedical research facility under a single roof. As an incubator of early talent, the Crick's scientists pursue excellence on the international stage, generating discoveries that will transform our understanding of health and disease. Its aim is to improve the treatment, diagnosis and prevention of human disease. This state-of-the-art facility opened five years ago, bringing together 1,500 researchers and staff to work collaboratively and innovatively to find solutions to some of the biggest medical research challenges, including cancer, cardiovascular conditions, neurodegenerative illnesses and infectious diseases.
CRUK and the Crick work together in fundraising and are in the planning phase of a major global fundraising campaign set to launch in 2023.
About the role
- Working with CRUK and Crick leadership, scientists and volunteers to develop the expertise and structures required for transformative philanthropy for the Institute
- Developing strong internal & external relationships, creating the success conditions for connecting major and principal gift prospects to high quality and multidisciplinary science
- Rigorously managing prospect portfolios and develop written prospect strategies under an agreed annual plan to generate an income target each year
- Working in collaboration with the CRUK and Crick staff to ensure high quality stewardship and recognition plans for all Crick's donors
- Identifying, qualifying and directly canvassing new donor prospects
- Line management of a dedicated team and drawing additional support from the wider CRUK & Crick teams where appropriate
You are an experienced major gift fundraiser with a track record of success and a seasoned and collaborative fundraising leader with excellent people management skills.
You will be passionate and interested in biomedical science and discovery and may be looking to move into a new fundraising sector (charity, biomedical research) or perhaps hoping to build your experience: working with senior leadership, managing a small team, and delivering a flagship fundraising programme and campaign.
You will also have:
- Extensive experience in fundraising at seven figure gifts levels, preferably within the health charity or education sector
- A record of success in expanding a donor base through an established cultivation cycle and programme of stewardship
- Fundraising campaign and team leadership experience
- A strategic mind, with experience in developing written prospect strategies
- The ability and desire to articulate the CRUK and Crick case for support with passion and enthusiasm
- Superb interpersonal skills and be comfortable making direct contact with individual donors to discuss interest and commitment.
- The highest ethical standards and a deep respect for philanthropy.
- Strong emotional intelligence and influencing skills, with the ability to work within a complex environment, balancing a range of different stakeholder interests is critical
What's in it for you?
This is an exciting time to join one of UK's most successful high value fundraising teams. Cancer Research UK and the Francis Crick Institute aim to grow philanthropy income and our high value fundraising team. This role will allow you the opportunity to engage with some of the world's leading philanthropists and help them to develop a meaningful and important connection to our work and organisations. Our benefits package includes excellent annual leave and pension allowances along with additional discounts on a variety of lifestyle subscriptions and events.
