Events and Community Fundraising Manager
One person in five in the UK is affected by lung disease. As the only UK charity for people affected by all lung and respiratory diseases – from mild asthma through to lung cancer – the British Lung Foundation (BLF) is here for every one of them. We provide support, fund vital research, and campaign for better prevention, treatment and care.
We are looking for someone to provide 10-12 months’ maternity cover for our current community and events fundraising manager. Please don’t let the contract put you off applying as you’ll have the opportunity to refine and deliver our successful events and community fundraising strategy, work with a small, dynamic team of seven with huge ambitions and be a key member of the fundraising leadership team responsible for continuing the process of turning the BLF into a ‘fundraising organisation’ vs. one that ‘simply fundraises’.
We are looking for an experienced events and community fundraiser with a track record of coaching and developing teams to deliver income targets in excess of £1 million. Someone who can create the conditions for our talented and energetic team to flourish, whilst at the same time managing relationships with select high profile supporters to support their fundraising efforts.
As well as a competitive salary, you’ll enjoy a range of benefits including our cycle-to-work scheme, interest-free annual season Travelcard loan, 30 days annual leave (plus bank holidays), pension scheme whilst you’ll be working for an organisation placed 35th on the ‘Sunday Times 100 Best Not-for-Profit Organisations to Work For’ list in 2017.
This is a fantastic opportunity to contribute to an organisation committed to supporting everyone whose life is changed by lung disease.
