Flexible remote working with regular travel to our London Bridge office (currently closed due to Covid-19 restrictions)
What the job involves
Our high performing Community Fundraising team raises funds through a range of activities such as walks, golf, treks and cycle rides as well as via organisations such as Rotary. This is in addition to a collection of charity-owned products developed in-house – known as “The Month Series”. The Month Series consists of three separate physical challenges - walking, running or cycling for people to take on throughout particular months of the year. We launched this series post-Covid and have achieved incredible income results as well as driving new, and engaging with, warm supporters.
We have a great opportunity for someone to join and assist the team working on The Month Series. You’ll be the first point of contact for many taking on a challenge - providing administration and support through telephone, email and social media channels. You’ll be building and managing relationships with existing and new supporters, motivating them to complete their challenge, whilst offering fundraising advice and ensuring they receive a first-class experience, from registration through to completion.
The role will involve maintaining high quality data on The Raiser’s Edge database, maintaining accurate and up-to-date records on JustGiving and via Facebook Fundraising, whilst ensuring information gathered is recorded in accordance with the requirements of GDPR.
You’ll work closely with various colleagues across the Community and Sporting Events teams, and members of our Communications teams, to engage with our digital adverts, and identify compelling supporter stories that will raise the profile of The Month Series, as well as prostate cancer and Prostate Cancer UK.
You’ll have the energy and passion to provide crucial support to these sector-leading products which are already on track to recruit over 25,000 supporters in 2021 and generate £5M+ of gross income. This is a fantastic opportunity for the right person to grow, develop and gain valuable skills and experience in a fundraising role within a progressive and innovative organisation. You’ll be part of a passionate team fighting to stop prostate cancer from being a killer.
This is a full-time role and, whilst we mainly operate via core hours throughout the week, Monday to Friday, there is a requirement for some flexibility around occasional evening and weekend work to provide administrative support when events are running, for example, responding quickly to emails and comments from our supporters on Facebook about their experiences.
What we want from you
You’ll make a positive and valuable contribution to the success of the Community Fundraising team through excellent communication skills and being proactive in supporting our event participants. You’ll have a strong eye for detail and will be able to prioritise a busy workload to ensure we are able to deliver excellent supporter care. You’ll be self-motivated, well organised and have a ‘can-do’ approach to the role.
Why work for us?
We’re here to stop prostate cancer killing men and damaging bodies and lives. We unite the brightest minds in science and healthcare and the most passionate and caring people to help men live long and live well. As the number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer continues to rise, we continue to make advances in research to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment and support so that we can build a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer.
The support we’ll provide
Join our team and you’ll be working at an award-winning charity that will help you learn, develop your skills and expertise, and achieve your highest aspirations. We provide everything you’d expect from a professional organisation – with agile working and a competitive benefits package including generous annual leave entitlement, an enhanced contributory pension scheme, life insurance, cycle to work scheme and season ticket loans. Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we fight for a better future for men.
Our teams, supporters, partners, and those living with prostate cancer, come from all walks of life. We draw upon the difference in who we are, what we’ve experienced and how we think to build a future where lives are not limited by prostate cancer. Not only is it the right thing to do, it makes our charity stronger and helps us reach more people. If you share our ambition, we would love to hear from you.
