You’ll work within the charity’s passionate Fundraising and Engagement Team to raise funds to support children and families affected by the childhood cancer neuroblastoma and our vision, for a future where no child dies of neuroblastoma or suffers due to the treatment they receive.

This extremely rewarding role would suit anyone looking to take their first step in their fundraising, marketing or charity career. Don’t think your experience directly aligns? Don’t worry; we’re interested in transferable skills and attitude, so consider and show us how these apply to this role.

Summary of role responsibilities

  • To help deliver the charity’s Community and Events Fundraising Programme, including special events, community fundraising, challenge events, individual giving, and fundraising appeals.
  • To ensure excellent supporter and donor care and build long-term valued relationships to optimise income generation.

This is a fixed-term role offered on a one-year contract. We are looking for the successful candidate to ideally start in January 2024, but there is flexibility with this.
