Director of Fundraising
£90k; Flexible location but with significant time in London
Cancer is different for young people. Our vision is a world where cancer doesn’t stop young people from living their lives – and our job in making that vision a reality is to improve the experience, survival and recovery of every young person with cancer in the UK.
Young people facing cancer are at the centre of everything we do. Our values are built around this. We believe we can support young people with cancer best if we work in a determined, united, spirited and kind way. What that means is we all believe deeply in what we do & why we do it, but we also bring the attitude, drive, energy and passion that makes things happen.
Teenage Cancer Trust has been a hugely successful organisation for many years – leading the way in specialist support for young people with cancer in the UK and across the globe. We’re driven by what young people with cancer need and are the UK’s leading charity dedicated solely to the treatment, care and support of 13-25-year olds with cancer.
What’s clear is that we have significant opportunities to further expand and deepen our impact - but doing that in the face of the challenges to income posed by the current pandemic is going to be challenging.
Now, we’re not daunted by that, far from it and we’re looking for a Director of Fundraising who can rise to the challenge and seize opportunities. With the right fundraising leader to help rebuild revenue and develop our strengths we know we will not only survive but thrive. This is not an organisation – or role - that’s about more of the same or one size fits all.
Our team, our supporters and most of all young people with cancer need you to be a fundraising leader who is creative, collaborative and prepared to think differently. We need to continue to innovate to help drive the growth in impact that young people deserve, and our supporters expect.
This role has the potential to be life changing - not only for young people with cancer - but also for you and the talented, experienced teams you will be leading and empowering.
We need our Directors to be brilliant cross-organisational leaders with stacks of emotional intelligence and stakeholder engagement skills. You will thrive when working in partnership and making alliances. Success and strength are not about us doing everything – it’s about getting everything done with others. At Teenage Cancer Trust we succeed, fail & learn together and are stronger than the sum of our parts.
If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you.
