MQ invests in world-class scientific research into mental health conditions so that we can better understand, effectively treat and ultimately prevent mental illness. With offices in London and New York, we fund much-needed scientific research to transform the lives of everyone affected by mental illness. And with our community of supporters and an international network of talented researchers we can make this a reality.

Job Purpose Summary:

Challenge and community fundraising is an important part of MQ’s fundraising, engagement and research plans, providing repeat, predictable income for the charity. Additionally, MQ has been voted as the next Deutsche Bank Charity of the Year 2022-2023 with an aim to raise £3m over the next two years to fund and champion world-class mental health research. Therefore we want to maximise community and challenge event fundraising opportunities with Deutsche Bank employees over this two year period, whilst also continuing to grow this area of fundraising with broader MQ supporters.

We are seeking an ambitious, driven and creative individual with previous experience in supporting community and challenge event fundraising. This role will be responsible for maximising the value of fundraisers by helping to develop and deliver their supporter journey with MQ, and also assisting with putting together a calendar of events both for Deutsche Bank employees and MQ supporters.

Key responsibilities:

  • Work alongside the Community and Challenge Event Manager to foster and strengthen relationships with community fundraisers and challenge event fundraisers by delivering tailored supporter journeys and stewardship plans
  • Support delivery of the MQ Deutsche Charity of the Year Partnership over the next 2 years, to ensure community and challenge event fundraising is maximised with their employees
  • Assist with the development of community and challenge event marketing and stewardship materials
