Job Description

There are over 55,500 people living with a brain tumour in the UK. 16,000 more people are diagnosed each year. 20-40% of all cancers spread to the brain. Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of the under 35s. The disease is responsible for over 20 years of life lost in the typical patient, making it the most lethal cancer.

Some sobering statistics making the work this charity does absolutely imperative. Charity People is thrilled to be collaborating with this small, ambitious and rapidly-expanding support charity in their search for a Fundraising Manager. Day to day you will ensure that national fundraising campaigns, events and activities are supported and run effectively.

You will need a background in relationship fundraising, events, sales, marketing or PR, you will be a self-starting and positive 'can-do' individual, comfortable working autonomously, but responsible to your wider team.

You will be excited at the prospect of raising an incredible, but realistic, amount of money to support brain tumour patients and their families. Motivated by a shared belief in helping a forgotten group of cancer patients get the support they need, you will develop and deliver our fundraising strategy for the financial year ahead. You must have fire, drive and ambition to achieve, and hopefully exceed, fundraising targets.

With a 'people first' attitude, building and maintaining valued relationships will be at the heart of your role. You'll be ready to make friends along the way, and eager to work with existing supporters who share your passion for our cause. Your efforts will be focused on delivering and sustaining excellent stewardship, sensitive to the fact that many of our fundraisers have been impacted by a brain tumour diagnosis and have a raw connection to the charity.

You will be responsible for overseeing fundraising admin and maintaining the accuracy of the supporter database, adhering to the Fundraising Code of Practice at all times. Areas of involvement will also include corporate fundraising, funds, in memory giving, legacy appeals and regular giving. Interests should involve marketing, social media planning and storytelling, all of which are a crucial part of this role.

Please apply without delay. Interviews to be held virtually on the 12th May.
