Are you looking for an exciting new career opportunity that will enable you to support Macmillan Cancer Support's Philanthropy team to achieve a step-change in income, so we can best meet the needs of people living with cancer?  Are you an ambitious fundraiser with experience of sector-leading major gift fundraising techniques and trends? Are you interested in understanding why donors commit to partnering with an organisation that can effect real and lasting change for people living with cancer?

About the role

The Corporate Partnerships and Philanthropy (CPP) division at Macmillan Cancer Support is investing in a programme of transformation to realise our bold ambitions for Corporate Partnership and Philanthropic support, so that we can do whatever it takes to be there for all people living with cancer in the UK, helping them to find their best way through.

We have exciting plans to achieve a step-change in our fundraising potential, by becoming the partner of choice for philanthropic and corporate supporters, who have the ability to create lasting change for people living with cancer. We're looking for an entrepreneurial and experienced individual to join the major gift fundraising team within Philanthropy, enabling us to significantly grow our supporter pipeline, offer an exceptional stewardship experience for our existing individual donors and realise our ambitions by bringing new supporters on board.

You will be a highly motivated and experienced major gift fundraiser who is organised, solution-focussed and able to prioritise, with well-developed communication skills and the ability to assimilate complex information in order to create compelling supporter-facing communications for your high value prospect portfolio.

You will be a collaborative team player, able to influence across multiple stakeholder groups to achieve desired outcomes. You should be comfortable operating within an agile and ambitious working environment, enabling the major gift fundraising team to proactively respond to opportunities that arise, through being strategic and supporter-focussed in your decision-making.

Experience of working within high performing philanthropy fundraising teams is highly desirable and you should have a clear understanding and demonstrable experience in successfully soliciting and stewarding five- and six-figure gifts from high net worth individuals. 

About us

Macmillan Cancer Support exists to ensure millions of people living with cancer across the UK live life as fully as they can. Through physical, emotional and financial support, we will do whatever it takes to help people find their best way through their cancer experience, from the point of diagnosis and beyond. Our values are at the heart of who we are and everything we do, inspiring our thinking and guiding our actions. Together we provide vital support to those who need us most, acting with heart, with strength and with ambition.

The coronavirus pandemic has challenged Macmillan like never before, but it also saw us go further and faster towards improving care for people living with cancer, at a time when our support has never been so crucial. Coronavirus created a ticking timebomb of undiagnosed and untreated cancer in the UK and as a result, cancer survival rates could go backwards for the first time in decades. People are being diagnosed every day, and with increasing demand and pressure on the health care system, our purpose has never been so clear, so urgent and so important.

Recruitment Process

The application deadline is Friday 18 February at 23:59pm, with virtual interviews taking place on 24 and 28 February 2022.

In order to ensure fairness and consistency to select the best candidate for this role, all of our applications are anonymised up until an interview has been confirmed so that shortlisting is based solely upon the suitability of the candidate’s experience.
