We are currently looking for a driven and self-motivated Prospect Research & Information Manager to join a small but high performing Philanthropy & Special Events team.
As the sole prospect researcher, the role supports income growth across Philanthropy & Special Events and Corporate Partnerships by leading on the development and delivery of a robust prospect research strategy for Breast Cancer Now. Implementing and embedding a best practice approach and GDPR compliant systems and processes.
The role will identify opportunities to enable the fundraising teams to cultivate financial support from philanthropists, trusts and foundations and companies. You will also lead on mapping activity around senior volunteers and their referrals, and provide event guest lists and attendee briefings.
The role also leads on the management of Breast Cancer Now’s restricted income process ensuring that fundraisers have access to accurate information.
The role offers the opportunity to work with a highly supportive team at an exciting time for Breast Cancer Now as we seek to grow our major gift fundraising.
The successful candidate will be highly motivated with an excellent understanding of prospect research in the non-profit sector. You’ll be an experienced prospect researcher able to support the team in delivering their priorities. You will be an analytical thinker able to easily analyse data to inform the development of the philanthropy strategy.
As a proactive and confident team player, you will be at ease dealing with key internal stakeholders as well as senior volunteers. Whilst the role sits in Philanthropy & Special Events there will be a significant amount of collaborative working across the wider directorate and organisation.
The successful candidate will be excited to be part of an ambitious, focused and supportive wider Fundraising, Communications and Engagement Directorate, which is newly formed with a remit to reach and engage more people than ever before in our work and to develop our fundraising to become a sustainable organisation for the future.
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.
Please note that whilst Breast Cancer Now is following Government guidelines regarding working from home, this role will be based within one of our offices (London, Cardiff, Glasgow or Sheffield) and the expectation is that once restrictions are eased that the post holder will be based within one of these offices for the majority of the time. Should you have any queries with regards to this please do not hesitate to contact us.
