Who are we?
Recently named one of the Third Sector's ‘Best Charities to Work For’, we are committed to moving further, faster to accelerate change for everyone affected by a brain tumour.

Our exciting job role!
Our Community Fundraising team work closely with individuals, companies, clubs and groups across the UK to deliver supporter led fundraising activities - driving income and engagement through the development of compelling fundraising propositions and the delivery of excellent supporter experience while building a network of volunteers to enable them to work at scale and maximise opportunities to raise funds and increase support in the East of England.

You’ll also be creative and organised — full of ideas that you are capable of taking from initial concept to delivery — and you’ll be commercial in your approach, understanding the power of data to drive engagement and income.
If this is for you, we’d love to hear from you!

Did you know that we were ranked 11th Best Charity to Work For 2020 by Third Sector? Oh yes, and crowned Third Sector’s Charity of the Year in 2018? Not to mention we have won a variety of other awards and have been ranked a top global organisation by renowned management consultants McKinsey! While we’re not boasting, we are particularly proud that our HeadSmart campaign scooped the NHS Innovation Award, a Third Sector Excellence Award and a Charity Times Award (well, maybe we’re boasting a little bit!).
