Breast Cancer Now

The role

Thousands of people in our communities are affected by breast cancer, and many of these are compelled to help by fundraising for Breast Cancer Now. To enable us to best support our network of fundraisers, and create a sector leading programme, we've just reconfigured our community fundraising team.

This has created an opportunity for two community fundraisers to join us, who’ll be jointly responsible for the London, South and Welsh regions.

As a community fundraiser, you’ll build exceptional relationships with individuals, volunteers, clubs and societies, and inspire long term engagement from new and existing supporters.  You’ll also create new opportunities from our successful DIY fundraising programme, growing the pipeline for high lifetime value fundraising.  

Working alongside a community fundraising executive that you’ll line manage, you’ll play a pivotal role in developing a top tier stewardship programme which exceeds the expectations of supporters. And helps to generate long term, sustainable income so we can reach our goal that by 2050 everyone with breast cancer lives, and lives well.

About you  

You love working with people and have a talent for forging relationships. Whether it’s helping someone plan a fantastic fundraiser or finding innovative ways to show our appreciation, you’ll get a buzz from stewarding our incredible supporters.

Having navigated complex relationships with high value supporters before, you have the confidence to proactively engage and influence a range of audiences. You’ve also proven your ability to spot a fundraising opportunity and bring your ideas to life.

You have excellent communication and project management skills. Experience working in a busy supporter or customer facing role is also a bonus.

Your experience may have been gained in community, or perhaps another fundraising discipline or the commercial sector. If you’re a team player with great initiative and want to play an active role in taking our programme to new heights, we’d love to hear from you. 

About us

We’re Breast Cancer Now, the research and support charity. We’re the place to turn to for anything and everything to do with breast cancer. However you’re experiencing breast cancer, we’re here. 

The brightest minds in breast cancer research are here. Making life-saving research happen in labs across the UK and Ireland.  

Support services, trustworthy breast cancer information and specialist nurses are here. Ready to support you, whenever you need it.  

Dedicated campaigners are here. Fighting for the best possible treatment, services and care, for anyone affected by breast cancer.  

Why? Because we believe that by 2050, everyone diagnosed with breast cancer will live – and be supported to live well. But to create that future, we need to act now.
