About Make 2nds Count

Make 2nds Count is a patient and family focused charity dedicated to giving hope to women and men living with secondary breast cancer.

We strive to do this by raising awareness and funding medical research that will contribute to advancing an increased quality of life for patients. Our community programme supports patients and families affected by this incurable disease.

Make 2nds Count is supported by an enthusiastic and motivated group of individuals who help us make our vision a reality.  From permanent team members who are based at our head office in Edinburgh, to dedicated volunteers, patient champions and the dynamic board of trustees, our team is constantly evolving. 

Secondary breast cancer, also known as metastatic, advanced or stage IV breast cancer, is a cancer that has spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. Parts of the body affected are usually the bones, liver, lungs, brain or the skin. Secondary breast cancer can be treated but it cannot be cured. Treatments aim to control and slow down the disease to enable patients to have the best possible quality of life for as long as possible.

About the Role

Make 2nds Count is looking for an experienced  and dynamic fundraiser to drive forward and deliver our fundraising strategy. You will be responsible for leading our major donor portfolio, fundraising campaigns, regular and community giving alongside our annual programme of events.

Your expertise and innovation will enable us to expand and diversify our income generation through a range of fundraising activities which will allow us to continue to fund research, support and education projects in the field of secondary breast cancer across the UK.  Working closely with the Head of Operations and Community and Events Fundraiser, the Fundraising Manager will play a key role in raising our national profile by identifying opportunities for growing our income through creating and implementing new approaches to fundraising. 

You will possess excellent analytical, communication, organisational and interpersonal skills. You will be able to demonstrate attention to detail and have a proven track record of successful fundraising. You will have a high level of passion and enthusiasm in working with us to achieve our vision of  giving hope to those living with secondary breast cancer.

In joining our forward thinking, informed and compassionate team, you will have the opportunity to make a real impact within Make 2nds Count. This is a rewarding and a fast- pacing role where you will be working with a wide range of individual fundraisers, corporate partners, patients and key stakeholders supporting them with all of our fundraising activities.
