As we open Liverpool's first cancer hospital in just a few months, we are in the most exciting phase of our history.  With investment in our existing centres and the future of cancer care across Merseyside and Cheshire, we are the only charity dedicated to the  incredible work of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre.

Our charity funds the latest treatments, vital research, technology and the best possible environment for around 30,000 patients each year at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre. As one of the largest cancer hospitals in the UK, we operate from 18 sites, including our Centres in Wirral & Aintree, our blood cancer Unit at the Royal, and our network of clinics across the region.  We are excited to add our brand new cancer hospital in Liverpool City Centre to this network in May 2020.

In line with our plans for the coming years, we have a new opportunity for an experienced Community Fundraising Manager to join our team.  This role will not only be instrumental in raising the final £5m of our public appeal to transform cancer care for people across Merseyside and Cheshire, but is also key to the charity's future growth.

This will involve:
- Recruiting and managing volunteer fundraising groups across the area
- Working with community groups and local organisations
- Working with high street corporates & independent businesses
- Working with schools
- Representing the charity within the local community
- Managing volunteers
- Proactively recruiting new supporters and providing them with excellent donor care.

The successful candidates will be self-motivating, and have a natural ability to inspire others to achieve the best possible fundraising outcome for the charity. You will devise and implement a robust action plan for your dedicated area which draws upon your own experience and abilities, in partnership with team members and based on our current fundraising strategy, to ensure success within your own income stream.

The ideal candidate will have significant experience in community fundraising or appropriate transferable skills. You will thrive on the challenge of developing new and diverse methods of attracting support for the charity, with an ability to adapt to social and economic trends in giving. Your drive, commitment and personality will allow you to grow income through excellent relationships with supporters and potential partners.

This is an exciting opportunity to join our dynamic and forward thinking Trust.

The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s leading cancer centres, providing high quality care to the population of Merseyside and Cheshire and beyond.

We are also the only facility in the UK providing low-energy proton beam therapy to treat rare eye cancers.

We are currently embarking on an £162 million investment in facilities including a new cancer hospital in the heart of Liverpool due to open in 2020. Based on the same thriving research and healthcare campus as the University of Liverpool and Royal Liverpool University Hospital, the new hospital will ensure every patient receives truly outstanding care and can access the most advanced treatments and clinical trials for generations to come.
