The Clatterbridge Cancer Charity is growing and we have a number of fantastic opportunities to join our Fundraising Team!



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 future plans we have an incredible opportunity for an enthusiastic Events Fundraising Assistant to join our fundraising 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.



Assisting the Events Fundraising Manager, this role is key to the success of the charity’s fundraising events – from countryside bike rides and coastal walks to adrenaline fuelled skydives and everything in between! You will assist in marketing the events, the recruitment of participants, and giving our supporters the tools they need to hit their fundraising goals to support the work we do.

This exciting role also includes getting involved in the logistics of our events – helping to make sure our events are safe, smooth running and most of all fun for our supporters! You could be developing a social media campaign one day, and handing out medals in a muddy field the next. It’s an exciting role and no two days are the same.

General overview:

  • Provide proactive support in the planning, preparation and manual set up of fundraising events
  • Support marketing activity to recruit participants for our events
  • Identify case stories to inspire others to take part
  • Attend third party events as and when required (some weekends)
  • Recruitment and coordination of event volunteers
  • Maintain event systems, including database management and filing
  • Support on specific third party events as designated by the Events Fundraising Manager
  • Communicate with fundraisers to encourage income generation and further participation
  • Source gifts in kind and prizes from local companies
  • Prepare information packs and marketing materials
  • Attend events with and on behalf of the Events Fundraising Manager
  • Encourage participation in organised fundraising activities and events

The ideal candidate will have a passion for events, marketing, the outdoors, and fundraising. You should be someone with a very hands-on approach, and are happy to do everything for the good of the event and the charity. You’ll thrive on making our events a success, raising money for people with cancer and supporting our participants on their journey.

If you are looking to develop a career in fundraising and/or events, this role is a fantastic opportunity to learn and gain experience in a fast-paced charity events environment.



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 provide a comprehensive range of inpatient care, advanced radiotherapy, chemotherapy and other systemic anti-cancer therapies including gene therapies and immunotherapies for the treatment of solid tumours and blood cancers. 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.
