The Bone Cancer Research Trust (BCRT) is the leading charity dedicated to fighting primary bone cancer. Our mission is to save lives and improve outcomes through research, information, awareness and support. In July 2019 we were awarded 'National Healthcare & Medical Research Charity of the Year' at the national Charity Awards and earlier in the year the Yorkshire & Humber Institute of Fundraising awarded our Fundraising & Communications Team with 'Fundraising Team of the Year'. We are a small but incredibly passionate and driven organisation that is proud and supportive of our people - together we make the biggest impact for our community.
The Challenge Events Fundraising Officer will contribute to the overall fundraising strategy by delivering a programme of activities that maximise income generation and recruitment and retention of supporters.
You will operate as a key member of the Challenge Events Team and will have the opportunity to explore new exciting opportunities for the charity. You will also lead on existing events which form part of our core income programme and help grow our expanding portfolio of Challenge Events.
To deliver on our strategy through to 2022 we need to deliver high quality, meaningful events that help meet our income and charitable objectives. This role will have a direct impact on the primary bone cancer community through Challenge Events by empowering and involving patients, carers, friends, relatives, healthcare professionals and researchers.
The ideal candidate will bring experience of successfully building events fundraising streams through different challenges and bespoke events as well developing meaningful relationships with professional event organisers. They will be results-orientated with a passion for first-class supporter care. They will build excellent working relationships with colleagues and stakeholders as they pull together new ideas for events that will help to ultimately save lives.
As we are a small team, a team-player attitude is a must, as well as a positive and can-do approach.
If you have excellent communication and event management skills, a natural ability to liaise with stakeholders, and determination to succeed, we would like to hear from you.
