We’re excited to announce that in April 2019, Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now united to create one charity for everyone affected by breast cancer. From research to care, our new charity has people affected by the disease at its heart – providing support for today and hope for the future. United, we can carry out even more world-class research, provide even more life-changing support and campaign even more effectively for better services and care.
By bringing together our passion, energy, expertise, funds and networks, we will make greater progress in more effective ways to make sure that, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live and receive the support they need to live well.
About the role
An exciting opportunity has arisen to join a lively, dynamic and driven fundraising Events Team. Over the last decade, Breast Cancer Care has built up a strong events function, with events currently accounting for a quarter of the charity’s overall voluntary income.
We are looking for an experienced Events Executive to help deliver our Bespoke Events portfolio – currently comprising of our walking events, overseas and UK challenges, fashion shows, carol concerts, and a range of other prestigious events. The post holder will work across these events, with a particular focus on walking and trekking events, to maximise participant numbers and income and providing an excellent supporter journey for our participants.
We are looking for someone with fundraising experience who is able to provide first class customer service, build great relationships at all levels and to take responsibility for areas of our portfolio.
You will have outstanding organisational and communication skills as well as being a key team player and able to deal with conflicting demands and meet tight deadlines.
There will also be requirements for event day attendance across the entire Events team portfolio, so an enthusiasm to be involved with events of all natures is a must.
