Salary: Up to £100,000 for exceptional candidates
Marie Curie’s mission has never been more important. In 2017-18, thanks to our generous supporters, over 40,000 people nearing the end of their lives received hands-on care in their homes or in a Marie Curie Hospice. However, many more people in the UK die without receiving all the care and support they need. Marie Curie is determined to ensure that everyone has the appropriate support at the end of their lives.
With a new Chief Executive recently appointed and an exciting new strategy and plan in fundraising approved, the charity is looking for a Fundraising Director to play a critical role in raising more funds to ensure even more people get the best possible end of life experience they can have.
Reporting to the Executive Director of Fundraising and Engagement and working closely with the Senior Leadership Team, the Director of Fundraising will be responsible for creating a culture and environment that inspires and enables the charity’s movement of over 300 professional fundraisers, more than 5,000 registered volunteers and hundreds of thousands of donors to thrive and grow.
This is a big role and the successful candidate will need to possess energy, ambition and exceptional leadership skills. The ability to inspire Marie Curie’s fundraising teams to achieve ambitious fundraising targets and sustained growth to maximise talent and resources is a must. Marie Curie needs a leader who can build on existing success, maintain high standards of supporter experience, and who can confidently represent the charity at the highest levels.
The successful candidate must have a proven track record in delivering sustained results and of working at a senior and strategic level, including previous experience in managing multi-million pound income and expenditure budgets.
S/he must also possess outstanding communication and interpersonal skills, excellent judgment and decision-making abilities and a genuine commitment to the work of Marie Curie.
