Senior Challenge Events Fundraiser
Action Medical Research is an ambitious charity aiming to grow and deliver still more medical research to help children. With roots in the development of the first UK polio vaccines, the charity has contributed to some amazing medical breakthroughs, like developing ultrasound in pregnancy, the rubella vaccine and cooling therapy for newborn babies.
But medical research for children is underfunded and we urgently need to develop more new treatments and cures. That’s why we need you to join us in our fight for little lives.
We are looking for an experienced and energetic senior challenge events fundraiser to join our busy events team. You will be responsible for maximising income from a portfolio of events which may include running, cycling, UK walking and team challenges. With exciting plans in place you’ll work closely with the Head of Events to help develop new and existing activity, recommending marketing and promotional campaigns for your events to meet recruitment targets, whilst identifying and building strong ongoing supporter relationships.
Candidates must be able to demonstrate a successful track record in a challenge events fundraising position. You will be proactive, creative, with the ability to plan and deliver a busy and varied workload. Excellent project management, relationship building, IT and marketing skills are essential. As the role involves supporting a number of events during the event season, you must be able to work flexible hours and weekends with occasional time spent away from home.
Applications by CV with a covering statement detailing how you meet the requirements of the person specification, in particular the essential experience criteria, should be sent to Stephanie Stevens firstname.lastname@example.org by 9am Friday 15 June.
Benefits include 22 days annual leave plus additional closure days between Christmas and New Year and a Group Flexible Retirement Plan
