Macmillan Cancer Support - Fundraising Manager

Field-Based (Sussex)

Are you positive and results-driven with an impressive track record in sales?

Why do we ask? Because four million people will be living with cancer by 2030 and we intend to be there for each and every one of them.

That challenging ambition makes it vital that we raise more funds and inspire millions of people to get involved. And that means we need successful professional sales people – people like you – to work as fundraisers.

About the role:

We need you to create and implement an innovative plan that maximises our impact in your patch – from businesses to schools to local associations and private individuals. We need you to identify key local supporters and work with them to deliver on challenging fundraising targets. And we need you to engage those with influence in the community and to raise our profile through a network of local supporters, volunteers and media.

Accustomed to working on the move supported by a remote team, you are equipped with a strategic mindset, focus, personal drive and enthusiasm, as well as excellent communication and exceptional relationship building skills. We think your experience is likely to be in field sales, but perhaps you have a background in sales-focussed marketing or are an existing fundraiser accustomed to stretching targets and unconcerned by the field-based nature of this role.

Whatever your background, it’s your track record of success that will be most important to us. And in return for building on those successes to deliver impressive results for Macmillan, we commit to actively developing you and offer benefits including BUPA, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous leave, and interest free loans for season ticket and gym membership.

Our Fundraising Managers are 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 and the work will also require some unsocial and out of hours working. A car or car allowance is provided.

Interview/Assessment: 16 Mar 2012
The first stage of selection may take the form either of a full-day assessment or of an interview. Candidates are recommended to secure their availability for the full day initially.

We value diversity in our workforce and we encourage applications from all sectors of the community.

Macmillan Cancer Support, registered charity in England and Wales (261017), Scotland (SC039907) and the Isle of Man (604).
