Job description

Fundraising Manager - East of England

£26,500 - £31,500 + car allowance

Home Based within Essex or Hertfordshire

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.

We are currently recruiting for a Fundraising Manager to work in the Hertfordshire and Essex area within our East of England fundraising team.

As our ideal candidate, you will have a proven track record of working towards targets and financial KPI's, building relationships with a variety of customers and clients including corporates, groups and individuals. You should be confident in working independently, equipped with a strategic mindset, driven and focused as well as being an excellent communicator and relationship builder.

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 the 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 a Fundraising Manager in the East of England 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.

Macmillan’s Fundraising Managers are home-workers who travel extensively within the defined geographical area for their role. You must have a full UK driving licence at the time of application and the work will also require some unsocial and out of hours working. A car allowance is provided and you should have full access to a vehicle. There will be a requirement for flexible working to support evening and weekend events: you will be compensated for this with time off in lieu.

You may have experience of the following: Sales Manager, Regional Fundraiser, Corporate Fundraiser, New Business Manager, Area Sales Manager, Business Development Manager, Marketing Manager, Key Account Manager, Client Relations Manager.


Please submit your application as soon as possible as we reserve the right to change the closing date of our vacancies.

We aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths so we seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, reflecting the diverse nature of our society.

We will support you throughout the recruitment process with any reasonable adjustments required in accordance with the Equality Act. Please contact the Recruitment Team if you require support.
