Location: Home Based
Contract type: Permanent
Hours per week: 35
Salary: £29,857 (FTE)

Closing date: 2nd January 2024
Interview date: 8th January 2024

Do you want to join our commitment to ensure no family faces cancer alone?

We are looking for a standout relationship manager to join our fantastic team of fundraisers who work tirelessly to raise funds for Young Lives vs Cancer. This is a role of variety, opportunity and innovation and we are looking for someone who embraces change and constantly strives to achieve more.

A great personality and team ethic are really important in this role as you will maximise income for Young Live vs Cancer by coaching our supporters to reach their goals, whilst seeking out new fundraising opportunities for your geographical area. This role sits within the ‘Supporter Experience’ team, and we need someone with natural customer service skills who wants to deliver a legendary experience to all of their supporters. Your team of supporters will range from volunteers and individuals to groups and local corporates.

We are not your average employer, nor are we looking for an average candidate in a 9-5 role. What we offer is the flexibility and adaptivity to ensure that your personal work/life balance is taken care of. Whether it is finishing early for an appointment, picking up from school or further education, we can help to make it work for you. Many of the team work condensed or flexible hours to suit their individual circumstance so we would love to discuss your needs more at interview.

Experience within a similar role, or within the charity sector, would be great but we know that a lot of the most important skills in this role are easily transferable from another sector. We want the right person, and we will invest in training the right candidate. The skills we are looking for in this role are:

- Strong prioritisation skills
- Great communicator
- Self-Motivated
- Emotionally intelligent
- Master at storytelling
- Epic at relationship building.
- Self-Aware
- Great at spotting opportunities
- Influencing/Negotiating
- Compassion
- Bravery
- Integrity
- Team player

The must haves:

- A full UK driving licence and access to a car (including business insurance)
- A sufficient Broadband connection if home based.
- Live in the East or West Midlands of England. Candidates who live outside of the local authority should highlight an intention to relocate to the area in their covering letter for their application to be considered.
