Why do we ask? Because almost one in two people will develop cancer in their lifetime and it’s Macmillan's aim to raise funds to be there to help everyone who needs us. Regional fundraising already generates over £40m a year across the UK, but we need someone like you to help us raise much more and inspire more people to give us support.
The candidates we are looking for will be experienced in working with volunteers, individuals and groups, confident working independently, equipped with a strategic mind set, focus, drive, and enthusiasm, as well as having excellent communication and relationship building skills.
You will also be adept at planning and prioritising to meet the multiple calls on your time. Using all these skills and traits, you'll create and implement an innovative plan - one that delivers strategic financial and non-financial objectives.
You'll be part of the Wales fundraising team, wider regional team, and UK-wide fundraising department, which builds long term sustainable relationships and inspires millions to get involved in improving the lives of people living with cancer.
As a Fundraising Manager, you will ideally be based in South East Wales, a welsh speaker would be advantageous, be computer literate, have experience managing Social Media Platforms, and ideally have knowledge of the geographic area.
You'll be expected to identify and secure new fundraising relationships, and support them alongside existing relationships to maximise fundraising potential and 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, generous leave, and interest free loans for season tickets and gym membership.
Macmillan’s Fundraising Managers are home based mobile workers who travel extensively within the defined geographical area for their role. You must have a full UK driving licence at the time of application. A car allowance is provided with the role.
There will also be a requirement for flexible and some unsocial and out of hours working to support evening and weekend activity: you will be compensated for this with time off in lieu.
You may have experience of the following: Sales Manager, Regional Fundraiser, Volunteer Management, Business Development Manager, Marketing Manager, Key Account Manager, Client Relations Manager.
