We need your fundraising expertise so we can achieve our vision that by 2050 everyone diagnosed with breast cancer lives – and is supported to live well.

This is a unique opportunity to work for the major breast cancer charity in Europe and the third largest cancer charity in the UK. By combining the power of research and care, Breast Cancer Now is doing something that no other breast cancer charity in the UK has ever done.

The Director of Fundraising plays a vital role in creating a dynamic culture that can deliver our ambition to make a step change in refining and growing our fundraising portfolio, taking our existing supporters with us and reaching new audiences to make our vision a reality. You will be at the forefront of leading this progress. 

We are looking for someone with extensive experience of fundraising and a proven track record of growing income within a fast-paced environment.  You will be a visionary and influential leader with the ability to innovate within fundraising and bring a collegiate approach to the organisation as a member of the Senior Leadership Team. We need someone who can lead by example and work towards a shared goal of growth in income, reach and impact and through multiple means.

There has never been a more exciting time to join the charity as we embark on this new phase of our history.
