Do you have a track record of building lasting relationships? Do you have the skills to drive income now and increase lifetime values? 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? Would you like to join us in our ambition to be the sector leading relationship fundraising team? If so, read on.


About the role

As a member of the relationship fundraising team, you will be expected to deliver personalised stewardship across Macmillan’s fundraising portfolio, working as one team, 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, 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.


Further details

This role is home-based, and ideally you will be located in the London area. There will be a requirement for some travel across London, and perhaps other parts of the UK occasionally. Ideally you will 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, however, as this is a London role applicants without a driving licence will be considered.

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.


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.

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.
