If you’re an experienced Community/Regional Fundraiser looking for your first management role, your search is over. 

We are looking for someone to cover North Greater Manchester and South Lancashire.  To be based in our Preston office (Some home based working also considered)

If you’ve honed your own fundraising skills and you’re now ready to utilise the experience you have gained to develop a small team of three as part of our wider North West area team we’d love to hear from you. If you thrive on the challenge of setting and achieving ambitious goals, think the only way to approach a target is to tackle it head on, and can bring the energy that adds some drive to how you approach your fundraising, then Marie Curie would love to support you in achieving your goals and helping us create a better end of life experience for everyone.

Here at Marie Curie we believe Everyone who will be affected by dying, death and bereavement should have the best possible experience, and for that experience to reflect what is most important to them.

Our ambition is to make that happen and to help achieve this, we are seeking to recruit an experienced Community Fundraiser who can juggle building, developing and maintaining fantastic relationships throughout their patch in North Greater Manchester and South Lancashire with line managing two other Community Fundraisers covering Cheshire and North Lancashire. We have quite a unique structure which provides ambitious fundraisers the opportunity to line management as part of a wider area team.

Candidates must have recent, relevant experience in a similar fundraising role, have an in-depth knowledge of fundraising principles, methods and procedures. Candidates should also have experience of recruiting and managing volunteers and experience of corporate fundraising.

The nature of fundraising activity requires flexibility and in return for your commitment to evening and weekend work, we will strive to help you enjoy a strong work life balance. Additionally, as the role will involve lots of travel, you should have a full UK driver’s license.

In return for your own commitment, we commit to actively developing you and offer a comprehensive Community Fundraising Training Pathway; management training; buddying; mentoring; shadowing and coaching through your individually tailored personal development plan.
