  • The Mass Participation team manages owned events and products including Challenge events, virtual events and collections as well as the directorates key campaigns including the flagship, multi-million-pound Great Daffodil Appeal. It is a crucial part of the Fundraising department and works incredibly closely with the Regional Fundraising teams as well as the Communications department

  • You will be a strategic thinker who works across the organisation and as part of a fundraising leadership team and can provide inspiring leadership.

You will be able to inspire yet challenge your teams to deliver growth and continue the building back following the impact of the pandemic.

  • Both teams are full of exceptional people who are experts in their field and make it a joy to lead, your purpose is to guide and lead them, we are not looking for an expert in every area of the role but for someone who can develop others expertise. We are supported by a large team of fundraisers across the directorate who are all working together to achieve the same aims, so you really are part of one team and one target.

The role will require travel to our London and Edinburgh offices on a regular basis (probably monthly) for team meetings and relationship building. The Supporter Relations team is office based and the Mass Participation team is remote - so you will be managing a diverse group of people.

  • Hours can be flexible, and we are happy to discuss flexible working arrangements with candidates to ensure that we get the best set up for both you and the organisation.

  • Marie Curie is a large organisation; the fundraising department raises nearly £100m gross income annually and we have just celebrated a fantastic 21/22 financial year where we overachieved on gross and net income. This puts us in a great position for the future and means we can really develop our organisation goals in the coming years.
