Major donor/Event fundraiser
Cris Cancer Foundation

Job Description

Do you have experience of fundraising with major donors?  Would you enjoy a job with a difference? Cris Cancer is a very special £1m charity raising funds for innovative, leading edge, cancer research and treatments.  We are run mainly by committed and experienced volunteers and much of our fundraising to date has been with International communities in London including our amazing annual gala ball which this year raised over £0.5m net.  We want to work with an experienced fundraiser who can join our ‘family’ and use their expertise to take our income up to the next level.

Job role/ additional information

Welcome to the Cris Cancer Foundation. Despite being a £1m charity we won’t be surprised if you have not come across us before. That could be because we beaver away behind the scenes, relying on the hard work of some amazingly dedicated volunteers.

We also have a sister charity in Spain and are launching a new one in France and together we aim to make a significant impact on beating cancer.

We know we can raise more in the UK simply by bringing someone on board who knows all the best techniques and ways of working to develop our existing (impressive) supporter base and events portfolio. With excellent stewardship, we want grow support across London and develop new ways to engage.

What makes this role really special is our ‘family’? The camaraderie and commitment to making a difference are second to none.

So, we are looking for someone who understands, and has excellent connections within, the broader London community and who can make an immediate impact on our existing wide base of supporters and event portfolio as well as coming up with proposals to bring in those new audiences.

You will need to have worked with major donors (and therefore understand what make good stewardship) and be able to organise, with volunteers, high profile events.  We will want you to be able to develop practical strategies to make sure we are making best use of our resources.

We are happy to offer some flexibility for the right person (for example compressed hours, extended leave in school holidays) as long as it fits in with the work plan.

The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
