Challenge Events Assistant

Contract Type
£20,500 - £23,500
Expiry Date
Impressive admin skills? Looking to develop your customer services, fundraising support and events experience?

Job Description

The strength of your administration skills will be key in securing this role as you will be pivotal in supporting the Challenge Events team with development and progress of our event programme.

But you will also take ownership of allocated projects and act as our first point of contact both within Macmillan and for our supporters.

So, while you must be flexible, supportive and team-minded in your approach to work, you will also need to demonstrate the ability to take personal responsibility, act independently, and manage your time to achieve objectives across several strands of activity.

With your responsibilities ranging from overseeing donation-thanking and financial processing through to the progress, review and co-ordination of projects, it’s imperative that you regularly and proactively update the team.

You will need to liaise extensively - across Macmillan as well as with supporters – and well-developed communication, interpersonal and relationship building skills will be central to your success.

The exemplary care of our donors and a positive experience of Macmillan for all will be high on your agenda – keeping you focused and positive when dealing with substantial volumes of mundane and routine work.

You will possess customer/supporter-facing experience and will demonstrate resilience, patience, and that willingness to go the extra mile which defines good customer service. Fundraising experience would also add value.

You will be required to provide support at a number of Challenge Events on our programme and this may occasionally involve unsocial hours, weekend working and time spent away from home.

And what do we do for you in return for your enthusiasm and commitment? We commit to actively developing you and our benefits include private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, generous leave and interest free loans for season ticket and gym membership.


Please submit your application as soon as possible as we reserve the right to change the closing date of our vacancies.

We aim to encourage a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths so we seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, reflecting the diverse nature of our society. 

We will support you throughout the recruitment process with any reasonable adjustments required in accordance with the Equality Act. Please contact the Recruitment Team if you require support.
