We're looking for an exceptional fundraiser to join our dynamic award-winning team.
The successful candidate will play a significant part in a high-performing relationship fundraising team by taking ownership of fundraising activity across the South of England. You will have a direct and tangible impact on our ability to help and support bone cancer patients and their families.
Candidates must live, or plan to live within the South of England to be considered for this role.
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 Reseach 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 Community & Special Funds Fundraising Officers are the face of BCRT within the community and are passionate about raising money through building long lasting relationships with our supporters. They contribute to the overall fundraising strategy by raising income from three key income streams: special funds, community and regional corporate fundraising.
You will be the primary contact managing & nurturing a number of Special Fund relationships, as well as providing individuals and corporate supporters with the very best supporter experience. You will also respond to and manage emerging community fundraising opportunities as they arise.
The ideal candidate will bring a mature attitude and the ability to effectively and empathetically connect with a range of supporters including patients and their families. You will be proactive with a positive and can-do approach – instinctively following opportunities across your area. With at least 2 years’ fundraising experience, you can sense what the next step should be to build and maximise those opportunities.
With a true passion for exceptional supporter care and above all, an ability to naturally build rapport to quickly establish long lasting relationships, your impressive track record of raising money will speak for itself.
If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.
Candidates must live, or plan to live within the South of England to be considered for this role. Please note travel to the charity office in Leeds will be required approximately once a month.
