Job description

Relationship Fundraising Coordinator – Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland

Fixed term contract until 30 June 2023

Full-time: 34.5 hrs per week, we are open to a conversation about how you work these hours


£23,000 - £26,000 per annum, plus benefits

Do you have a track record of building relationships? Are you engaging and passionate about delivering results? Do you have skills to drive income now and increase lifetime values? If you’re keen to use those skills to inspire more people to give to Macmillan and would like to join in our ambition to be the sector leading relationship fundraising team, read on.


About the role

As part of the Relationship Fundraising Team, you will work closely with Relationship Fundraising Managers across Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, and other parts of the UK, to give supporters tools, advice, and assistance with their fundraising. You will understand supporters’ motivations and bring our cause to life to inspire people to give support across Macmillan’s fundraising products. You will provide bespoke and personalised stewardship and recognition to a range of different supporters which will form part of your own relationship portfolio.


The role is home based, and you will provide operational and desk bound support to the Relationship Fundraising Team. Necessary IT equipment, an online telephony service, and any other equipment you may need to fulfil the role will be provided. There will be an occasional requirement for flexible working to travel to team meetings or to support evening and weekend events: you will be compensated for this with time off in lieu. 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, childcare vouchers, generous leave, and interest free loans for season tickets and gym membership.


About you

We are looking for someone who has effective communication and influencing skills. You will place the supporter at the heart of everything you do with experience of cultivating, developing and stewarding supporters to deliver a first-class experience. You will need to be able to plan and prioritise your own workload and have good time management skills to manage your activities in what can be a fast-paced environment. You need to be able to work with different internal and external stakeholders in an agile and proactive way. Strong IT skills are essential, as is a good knowledge of databases and Microsoft Office applications. A full driving licence is desirable, but not essential. Ideally, but not essentially, we are looking for someone based in mainland Scotland for ease of meeting face to face with colleagues periodically.


About us

We help millions of people with cancer across the UK live life as fully as they can through physical, emotional, and financial support. Our values are at the heart of who we are and everything we do, inspiring our thinking and guiding our actions. Together, we do whatever it takes for people living with cancer: with heart, with strength and with ambition.


We are striving to do everything we can to ensure that our workforce is representative of the people we support, and those who support us. We advocate for being an inclusive organisation, where everyone can feel that they belong and where there are no barriers to success.


We want every individual to feel empowered to bring their best to work, and that’s why we offer flexibility in our working hours and benefits so we can support you in your life and your career, and we welcome a conversation about how these options can best support you.


We offer a range of flexible working patterns, such as compressed hours, e.g. 34.5 hours in 4 days instead of 5, flexibility to work earlier or later around our core working hours of 10am-4pm and more options.


Recruitment process

Applications close at midnight on Tuesday 24th May 2022. First stage interviews are planned for Monday 30 May and will be held virtually over Microsoft Teams. For those successful at the first stage, there will also be a second interview, currently planned for Monday 6 June.



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. We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, reflecting the diverse range of people we support.

We want to make our recruitment processes accessible to everyone, so if there is any way that we can support you to be the best you can be, please contact the Macmillan People Services Team.
