This is a really exciting time to join the Bone Cancer Research Trust (BCRT). As we emerge from the impact of the pandemic, we are more determined than ever to raise as much funding as possible to drive forward life-saving research and give hope to patients & their families.

Our community and patients are at the heart of all we do at BCRT, we put our relationships with supporters first and this has been a driving force in our success. This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a forward-thinking, dynamic and truly supportive fundraising team.

The Role

In this new role, you’ll be the face of BCRT within the South of England and will maximise income and awareness by taking ownership of fundraising activity across this region and by building long-lasting relationships with our supporters. Your role is essential to BCRT’s overall fundraising strategy and you will raise income from three key income streams:

  • Special Funds
  • Community Fundraising
  • Regional Corporate Fundraising

You will be the primary contact in the South of England, managing & nurturing several high-value Special Fund relationships, as well as providing individuals and corporate supporters with the very best supporter experience. You will also respond to and manage emerging fundraising opportunities as they arise throughout your region.

About You

The ideal candidate will bring a mature attitude and the ability to effectively and empathetically connect with a range of supporters including patients and their families. You will be a proactive self-starter with a positive ‘can-do’ approach – instinctively following opportunities across your area. With at least 2 years’ fundraising experience, you can sense what the next step should be to build and maximise opportunities with supporters.

With a true passion for exceptional supporter care and above all, an ability to naturally build rapport and quickly establish long lasting relationships, your impressive track record of raising funds will speak for itself.

If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you!

Candidates ideally will live, or plan to live within the South of England. Please note, travel to BCRT's main office in Leeds will be required periodically.
