Are you an energetic and enthusiastic fundraiser? Do you have a passion for delivering high-quality, mass-participation events as well as delivering fantastic experiences for our fundraisers? If so, we have the role for you!

​We are looking for a passionate and enthusiastic fundraiser to join our friendly events team! In an ambitious and exciting role, you will use your skills and experience to lead on the planning, delivery and development of Epilepsy Action’s mass-participation running events, the Epilepsy Action Bradford 10k and the new Epilepsy Action Bradford Half Marathon.  

​Key responsibilities

  • The successful planning, development and delivery of Epilepsy Action’s mass-participation running events portfolio – the Epilepsy Action Bradford 10k and the new Epilepsy Action Bradford Half Marathon.
  • The full logistical delivery of these events. Leading on marketing, messaging, contingency planning and health and safety.
  • Working with key stakeholders, both internally and externally, to ensure maximum income and that the participant experience is of the highest standard.

​This fantastic opportunity offers hybrid (Leeds-based with a mix of office and home working) and flexible working alongside a whole range of other benefits. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis and may close early – therefore, we encourage an early application.

Epilepsy Action is the UK’s leading epilepsy charity focusing on improving lives for people with epilepsy and raising awareness about an invisible condition. To achieve this, we must improve and influence across a wide range of issues that impact our community.

​We’re proud of the work we do to create a fairer and more just world. However, despite all of our hard work, we know that we’re not as diverse as we’d like to be, and we’re actively working to change that. We welcome applications from candidates of all backgrounds, and we particularly encourage candidates from BAME backgrounds and disabled candidates to get in touch and apply.

If you're excited to help shape the future of a charity that makes a difference to the lives of over 600,000 people in the UK with epilepsy, we'd love to hear from you.
