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 a community fundraising executive to join the north, midlands and Scotland team.
In this busy and exciting supporter-facing role, you’ll provide stewardship to our brilliant fundraisers organising events from bake sales and balls to tractor runs and sponsored walks. And, alongside the other community fundraiser executives, you’ll be the first point of contact for supporters, playing a key role in the smooth day to day running of the programme.
Through excellent relationship management, you’ll inspire our supporters to see through their fundraising plans, raise as much as possible and continue to support the charity in a way that’s right for them.
Reporting into an experienced community fundraiser, you’ll be nurtured and developed in your role. And have the opportunity to develop relationships with a wide variety of supporters, from individuals and volunteers to clubs, societies, groups and local companies.
You’re a brilliant communicator, love working with others, thrive in a busy environment and have a ‘can do’ attitude to your work.
Having worked in a customer or supporter facing role before, you’re naturally committed to providing exceptional stewardship. Engaging with our supporters will energise you, whether that’s speaking to them over the phone, hosting a cheque presentation or attending an event.
You’re organised and can prioritise your work well. You can also quickly pick up processes and have excellent administrative skills, all experience you’ve gained in a professional working environment.
It’s great if you’ve worked in a charity before, and community fundraising experience is a bonus. But it’s your passion for fundraising and making a difference that’s important – if this sounds like you, we can’t wait to hear from you.
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.
