Charity People are thrilled to be working exclusively with The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity to find a new Senior Philanthropy Manager for their highly successful fundraising team.

The Royal Marsden raises money solely to support their world-leading cancer centre. They ensure their nurses, doctors and research teams can provide the very best care and develop life-saving treatments, which are used across the UK and around the world. From funding state-of-the-art equipment and ground-breaking research, to creating the very best patient environments, they develop new ways to improve the lives of people affected by cancer. Their recent emergency appeal raised over £2m to support Royal Marsden staff and patients through the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity is coming to the end of an ambitious three-year strategy that is successfully delivering significant growth to our income. Along with funding an existing world-class programme of research, treatment and care, we are also raising £70 million, our biggest capital appeal to date, to build the Oak Cancer Centre that will provide radical new solutions for the research and treatment of cancer. This is an opportune time to join The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity as they embark on a new exciting three-year strategy and develop their next appeal to fund the world leading work of The Royal Marsden.

As Senior Philanthropy Manager you will manage a portfolio of existing major donors and lead on building relationships with new potential supporters to secure 6 and 7 figure donations. You will manage relationships with Appeal Board members, working closely with the Head of Major Gifts and Events and other members of the RMCC leadership team to explore their networks, facilitate introductions and secure gifts. You will also lead on the recruitment of new Senior Volunteers and Ambassadors to identify and initiate relationships with prospective supporters. You will have a proven ability and passion for relationship management and donor acquisition with previous experience of generating high level gifts.

You will be proactive, strategic, personable and will be able to use initiative to generate high level new relationships for the organisation.

If you are interested in this role, please send your CV in the first instance to Anna at Charity People. Please note the closing date is Friday 8th January.

Charity People actively promotes equality, diversity and inclusion. We match charity needs with skills and experience of candidates, irrespective of age, disability (including hidden disabilities), gender, gender identity or gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation. We do this because we know greater diversity will lead to even greater results for the charities we work with.
