What the job involves

We have an exciting opportunity for a senior major gift fundraiser to join the team as Head of Philanthropy. This is a fantastic time to join as we plan for accelerated income growth over the coming years in line with our engagement strategy. We know we have the ingredients to create even more long-lasting relationships with supporters, using our audience focussed, insight-led approach and our focus on customer experience. We are looking for someone who is passionate about inspiring high value supporters about the work of Prostate Cancer UK, developing exceptional supporter relationships.


What we want from you

We are looking for an experienced fundraising professional with a track record of growing income from major donors and trusts, and a creative approach to designing an engagement strategy and plan for these audiences that leaves them feeling uplifted by the experience.


You will be a proactive individual with a high level of emotional intelligence and strong influencing skills, as you forge and maintain relationships with individuals in senior positions, such as trustees. You will also be a strong people manager and will lead and develop your team effectively. We will expect you to be highly collaborative and people focused, able to work well across teams to spot opportunities and generate commitment and enthusiasm for your work.


You will take a lead on exciting new major giving initiatives, such as the feasibility of a major fundraising appeal, as well as ensuring our approach to high value fundraising is strategically focussed and coherent.

Why work for us?

We have a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer. Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support, we can make prostate cancer a disease the next generation of men need not fear. Be part of a team that will put an end to prostate cancer being a killer.


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 – competitive benefits package, contributory pension scheme, life insurance and season ticket loan – but much more besides. Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we fight for a better future for men.


Closing date: midnight, 13th October 2019.


We welcome applications from all sections of the community. Prostate Cancer UK is a registered charity in England and Wales (1005541) and in Scotland (SC039332). Registered company number 02653887.
