Do you have a track record of building lasting relationships?

Do you have the skills and passion to drive income now and increase a supporter’s lifetime value?

Are you keen to use those skills to inspire more people to give to Macmillan so we can do whatever it takes to help everyone with cancer live life as fully as they can?

If so, read on.

We are looking for a new Relationship Fundraising to join our team in the North West. We cover Lancashire, Cumbria, Merseyside, Wirral and the Isle of Man. We work flexibility as a team to cover the area. 

At Macmillan, we understand how important it is that our workforce is representative of the people we support, and who support us. We particularly welcome applications from disabled, minority ethnic and / or LGBTQ+ candidates who are under-represented in our organisation at this level.

We strive to ensure that every individual is empowered to bring their best self to work, and that’s why we offer flexibility in our hours and a range of benefits, to ensure we support you in your life and career ambitions. Macmillan has flexible start and finish times. We are determined to ensure our roles are accessible to disabled candidates and people with caring or childcare responsibilities.

This role is home-based, and there will be some travel across the region, approximately 1-2 days a week at peak times, and other parts of the UK occasionally. You must have a full UK driving licence at the time of application and, as a car allowance is provided with the role, you should have access to your own vehicle.

There will also be a requirement for some flexibility and out of hours working to support occasional evening and weekend activity. You will be compensated for this with time off in lieu.

About the role

As a member of the relationship fundraising team, you will deliver first class personalised stewardship across Macmillan’s fundraising portfolio, working as one team, to deliver against financial and non-financial key performance indicators in an ever-evolving environment. You will understand your supporters’ motivations and help them to support Macmillan in the way that appeals to them. All while ensuring you offer excellent levels of communication; fundraising guidance; suitably recognise their contribution; and demonstrate the impact of their support for people affected by cancer.

About you

We are looking for an excellent relationship builder who is skilled in building rapport and confident developing relationships with a variety of different audiences, ranging from individuals, organisations, and groups. You will want to place our supporters at the heart of everything you do by cultivating and stewarding relationships to deliver a first-class experience.

You will work to targets and need strong planning and organisational skills to deal with the variety of challenges the role brings. To be successful in this role you will need to have a positive, proactive, hands on approach in-order to deliver shared targets. These are measured by conversion, retention, and average value.

In addition, you will have strong written and oral communication and influencing skills to enable you to engage, inspire and deliver key messages. Plus, experience of working collaboratively with both internal and external stakeholders.

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 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.

Recruitment process

The application deadline is Thursday 10th February 2022, 23:59.

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 15 February 2022 via Microsoft Teams.
