Fundraising Manager - Bedfordshire & East of England
Fixed Term (12 Months - Covering Family Leave)
£26,500 - £31,000 + car allowance + benefits
Are you positive and results-driven with an impressive track record in fundraising, sales or marketing?
Why do we ask? Because one in two people will develop cancer in their lifetime and it’s our aim to raise enough funds to be there for each and every one of them. Regional fundraising already generates over £40m a year across the UK, but we need someone like you to help us raise much more and encourage more people to take part in what we do.
The candidates we are looking for will be experienced in working with and supporting fundraising groups and individuals, confident working independently, equipped with a strategic mindset, focus, drive and enthusiasm, as well as excellent communication and relationship building skills. You will be adept at planning and prioritising to meet the multiple calls on your time. Using all these skills and traits, you'll create and implement an innovative plan - one that maximises our impact in your area and delivers strategic financial and non-financial objectives through a network of local supporters and volunteers.
You'll be part of our ambition to inspire millions to get involved in reaching and improving the lives of people affected by cancer. As Fundraising Manager for the East of England with a focus on Bedfordshire, you would work with local supporters including businesses, individuals, community groups, volunteers and media contacts to raise awareness of our vital work and how each supporter can make a difference. You would support people to maximise their fundraising and recognise the difference that they are helping to make for people affected by cancer.
In return for your hard work and impressive results, we commit to actively developing you and our benefits include private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, generous leave, and interest free loans for season tickets and gym membership.
