Job description

The role

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join our fundraising Community and Events team.

Over the last decade, Breast Cancer Now has built up a strong events function, with community and events currently accounting for nearly a quarter of the charity’s overall voluntary income.

We are now looking for an Events Coordinator to play a key role within the team, supporting on the delivery of our flagship fundraising challenges, the Pink Ribbon Walks (PRWs). You will engage thousands of fundraisers, acting as a first point of contact and an ambassador for the organisation to excite and retain our supporters.

You will also lead on assigned projects, whilst supporting the team to deliver the Pink Ribbon Walks, to drive Breast Cancer Now forward as the go-to for challenge events.

This past year has been incredibly challenging within the charity events sector, with many of our events on hold until social distancing measures ease. At Breast Cancer Now we have worked hard to still create and deliver meaningful fundraising events for our supporters, and are now excitedly looking ahead to a busy events season.

About you

We’re looking for someone with excellent attention to detail and a passion for charity fundraising. An understanding of and experience with administrative tasks such as data entry and working in a fast-paced environment is desirable.

You will be a first point of contact with hundreds of our supporters, many of whom will be in touch via email, phone or social media, so an understanding of using these channels and delivering customer service, particularly in the charity sector, is preferable. You should also have a demonstrable ability to work to deadlines, use your initiative managing a project, and have experience working as part of a team.

We are a dedicated team with our supporters at the heart of what we do, if you have an interest in charity fundraising, administration, and supporter experiences then this could be the role for you.

About us

We’re Breast Cancer Now, the charity that’s steered by world-class research and powered by life-changing care. We’re here for anyone affected by breast cancer, the whole way through, providing support for today and hope for the future.

We’re that trusted friend that people affected by breast cancer turn to for caring support when they need it most. The expert authority on breast cancer research who is making breakthroughs and driving forward progress. And a vehicle for change, acting now to make sure anyone affected by breast cancer gets the best possible treatment and care.

We believe that we can change the future of breast cancer and make sure that, by 2050, everyone diagnosed with the disease lives – and is supported to live well. But we need to act now.

Although the role is based in our London office, we are following a blended approach between office and home working with a minimum or two days per week in the office for full-time staff members. Should you have any queries with regards to this please contact us in the first instance.

Breast Cancer Now is an inclusive employer committed to developing a diverse workforce.
