Why do we ask? Because one in three people will develop cancer in their lifetime and it’s our aim to raise enough funds to be there for each and every one of them. Regional fundraising already generates over £40m a year across the UK, but we need someone like you to help us raise much more and encourage more people to take part in what we do.
The candidates we are looking for will be experienced in prospecting and working with local businesses. You will be confident working independently, equipped with a strategic mindset, focus, drive and enthusiasm, as well as excellent communication and relationship building skills.
You will be adept at planning and prioritising to meet the multiple calls on your time. Using all these skills and traits, you'll be able to implement our plan in Leicestershire and Rutland - one that maximises our impact in the area and delivers strategic financial and non-financial objectives. You'll be part of our ambition to inspire millions to get involved in reaching and improving the lives of people affected by cancer.
As Fundraising Manager for Leicestershire and Rutland you would work with local businesses to maximise their fundraising efforts, as well as sourcing support from new corporate contacts, and supporting our committees to deliver key local community events. You would also work with local supporters including, individuals, community groups, volunteers and media contacts to raise awareness of our vital work and how each supporter can make a difference.
In return for your hard work and impressive results, we commit to actively developing you and our benefits include private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous leave, and interest free loans for season tickets and gym membership.
