Neuroblastoma UK

Salary: £31,500 - £TBC per year

Hours: 35 per week (flexible working proposals considered)

Location: Borough/London Bridge area, London.  Must be in the office at least one day a week.

Every year in the UK, around 100 children are diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a rare and aggressive cancer that mostly affects children under five. Neuroblastoma UK is a small national charity, dedicated to finding a cure for neuroblastoma.  For 40 years, we’ve been funding leading research to develop new, more effective and kinder treatments for children with this life-threatening disease - and get one step closer to finding a cure.

Reporting to the Board of Trustees, The Fundraising Manager – Public Fundraising role will be a key role in the growth of Neuroblastoma UK during our 40th year and beyond. Currently one manager role manages all income streams, and this new role will be vital in ensuring both managers have capacity to grow their income areas and support the charity’s continued growth.

This is an excellent opportunity for an ambitious Exec or Senior Exec with experience in Individual Giving, Community Fundraising or Challenge Events, to move into a manager role and gain fantastic experience of completely owning your own channels, budgets and strategies.

Neuroblastoma UK is committed to flexible working (in terms of hours and WFH) and will consider propositions from the succesful candidate as to what hat would entail for them.

  • With the other managers in the organisation, supporting in duties outside of your specific team or department as required
  • Taking the lead on developing our expenditure split and working with Communications Manager to keep this updated
  • Administrative tasks associated with each of the income areas you're responsible for
