Job description

The role

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join a lively, dynamic and driven fundraising 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 Officer to play a key role within the team, leading on the delivery of our varied portfolio of challenge events, currently comprising of running events, triathlons, cycling events, overseas and UK challenges whilst playing a key part in the team 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 a real drive and a passion for charity events fundraising.

You will be delivering your own portfolio of events including recruitment of participants, development of supporter journeys and stewardship communications to meet net income and supporter retention targets.

We are a dedicated team with our supporters at the heart of what we do, if you have experience and interest in delivering events and building relationships with supporters 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.

Please note that currently Breast Cancer Now is following Government guidelines regarding working from home.
