Do you have a track record of building lasting 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 your experience and 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 a member of the relationship fundraising area team covering North and East Scotland, you will be expected to deliver personalised stewardship across Macmillan’s fundraising portfolio, working together, to deliver against financial and non-financial key performance indicators in what can be a fast-paced environment. You will understand your supporters’ motivations and help them get involved with, and support Macmillan in the way that appeals to them. All while ensuring you offer appropriate 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 someone with excellent account management experience who is skilled in building rapport and developing relationships with a variety of different individuals, organisations, and groups simultaneously. You will place our supporters at the heart of everything you do by cultivating and stewarding relationships to deliver a first-class experience.


You will also have robust planning and organisational skills and be able to multi-task to achieve deadlines. Success in this role demands a proactive, hands on approach to deliver shared targets for the area and territory, as well as individual targets for your personal portfolio of supporters, which will include our loyal Macmillan volunteer fundraising groups spread across the whole area. Key performance indicators will include conversion rates, retention results, and average values.


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.


This role is home-based with mobile working. Your home-base should be in the north of mainland Scotland to enable you to easily meet some supporters face to face periodically. There will be a requirement for regular travel in Scotland, and perhaps other parts of the UK on occasion. 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 also have access to your own vehicle.


Further details

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

We commit to actively developing you and our benefits include private medical insurance, life insurance, pension, generous leave, and interest free loans for season tickets and gym membership.
