Special Events Officer

An exciting opportunity has arisen to join a lively, dynamic and driven Fundraising Events Team. Over the last ten years Breast Cancer Care has built up a strong events function, with events currently accounting for a third of the charity’s overall voluntary income. We are now in a position to consolidate this and are looking for an experienced and driven Officer to help us deliver our targets and identify new opportunities for our Special Events portfolio.
With the support of the Special Events Manager, the post holder will work on the development and delivery of the Special Events portfolio; the existing Special Events include the Breast Cancer Care Fashion Shows, our Carols by Candlelight and a range of supporter led special events. The post holder will work across these events and will need a highly motivated approach.
We are looking for someone with events fundraising experience in delivering high end, large scale special events. Outstanding organisational, communication and marketing skills are required whilst being a key team player. The post holder will be accustomed to working on various projects, will be flexible and able to deal with conflicting demands and meet tight deadlines.
Please note that Breast Cancer Care's London office will be relocating to Oval in early 2017.
The deadline for applications is 9.00 on Thursday 27 October 2016. First interviews will be held in the w/c 7 November 2016.
