About the charity/role

Macmillan are looking for an experienced philanthropy fundraiser who can support the team to dramatically increase income over the next 3-5 years.

With a focus on principal gifts you will lead a team of fundraisers across HNWIs, trusts, foundations and supporter events – supporting and inspiring them to unlock new funding opportunities through pipeline development and new products.

Like many other charities, the pandemic has had a significant impact on Macmillan’s voluntary income – as such they are keen to invest in philanthropy fundraising and grow high value support as they deliver crucial support to people affected by cancer.

  • Have experience of creating philanthropy strategies, resulting in significant income growth;
  • Have expertise of leading teams to secure six- and seven-figure principal gifts from high value sources including HNWIs;
  • Be a skilled leader who can motivate a multi-disciplinary team to grow and develop their own portfolios of funders to support growth;
  • Have managed multi-million pound budgets and have expertise in delivering high income targets and growth.

For further details please get in touch with Naomi – the deadline for applications is Sunday 24 January.
