Are you an ambitious, driven people person, passionate about raising money to support cancer research?

Cancer Research UK is the world's largest independent cancer research charity; they are looking for Relationship Managers to inspire and engage with communities to enable them to raise the funds needed to continue this life saving research.

What will I be doing?

As Relationship Manager, you will work within the community to provide individuals, groups, and corporate supporters an exceptional level of service across the charity's UK portfolio. You will inspire and motivate supporters to develop long-term relationships and maximising fundraising opportunities. There is also a strong focus on acquisition within the role and we are looking for someone who can maximise opportunities to bring in new fundraising opportunities.

This role includes evening and weekend work with occasional overnight stays.

Make an impact every day by…

  • Inspiring, developing and managing supporters to achieve their goals through offering outstanding and tailored stewardship

  • Ensuring each supporter has a stewardship plan in place which best fits their motivations

  • Planning and delivering effective rewards and recognition to increase loyalty and income

  • Building strong working relationships with other divisional team members

  • Supporting the development of prospect pipelines of opportunities and identifying and cultivating leads.

What skills do I need?

We're looking for a natural people person, with excellent relationship building skills. You'll be used to managing conflicting priorities and be adaptable in an environment where no two days are the same.

The successful Relationship Manager will have the following skills and experience:

  • Excellent networking and relationship manager skills - and the ability to motivate and influence supporters or customers to reach targets

  • Experience of working as part of a high performing team, achieving and exceeding KPIs and targets

  • Experience of working as a team, and also working unsupervised

  • Ability to understand the charity's vision and purpose, and using this to motivate and inspire supporters

  • A strong solution focused approach to help supporters overcome any challenges and maximise their fundraising efforts

  • Great time management, prioritisation and planning skills.

  • Excellent communication and presentation skills (face to face, written and phone) to engender the confidence of supporters and build long lasting relationship

What will I gain?

Without you the charity wouldn't be able to achieve their aim of seeing 3 in 4 people survive cancer by 2034. So, you will be rewarded in as many ways as possible. The benefits package includes discounts on anything from travel to technology, generous holiday allowance, gym membership, childcare vouchers and much more. You'll also be able to access a wide range of learning and development opportunities. And ultimately, you'll know that you'll be changing lives through your work.

If you're as ambitious as we are, join our collective force and enjoy an excellent career, as we save lives and add years!
