10 people are diagnosed with sarcoma every day in the UK. People with sarcoma tend to be younger than most people with cancer, and half of the people diagnosed with sarcoma will not survive.
Sarcoma UK is the only cancer charity in the UK focusing on all types of sarcoma. We are a vibrant, growing charity, and we put the people affected by sarcoma at the heart of everything we do.
We have an exciting opportunity for a major gifts fundraiser to join our highly motivated and supportive team. This is a new role with great potential to make a big impact, taking on an existing prospect pool which includes many warm supporters, and building on our recent Charity of the Year partnership with 10 Downing Street.
We are looking for a passionate fundraiser who can communicate confidently with all kinds of people; be tactful, sensitive and discreet; steward long-term relationships with supporters; and secure major donations.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate a creative and forward-thinking outlook, a tenacious approach, excellent writing skills and a keen attention to detail. You will also be able to work collaboratively with a busy team for which no two days are ever the same.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
