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 Special Events Manager will focus on maximising income and building the profile of BCRT by planning, managing and delivering a successful series of events.
You will operate at the centre of a growing team and will be responsible for planning, developing, marketing and implementing a portfolio of Special Events, including gala dinners / balls, comedy nights and assist with delivering lab tours for supporters. Success will be measured by achieving income targets within the planned expenditure, numbers of participants / guests, publicity generated, receipt of positive feedback, and the retention of and conversion of supporters.
You will communicate with a wide range of stakeholders to deliver on these events. From the Research, Support & Information and Fundraising & Communication teams to event venues, families affected, medical professionals and researchers that we support. You will be required to lead on every aspect of each event, including marketing, pre-event logistics and on the day support. You will be in a pivotal position to help us achieve many of our strategic goals.
To deliver on our strategy through to 2022 we need to ensure we 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 Special Events by empowering patients, carers, friends, relatives, healthcare professionals and researchers.
The ideal candidate will bring experience of organising and deliverying high profile special events, such as gala dinners, balls, art exhibitions etc. 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.
