Ovarian cancer is a devastating disease. Most women are not diagnosed early enough and survival rates in the UK are among the worst in Europe. Funding for research into ovarian cancer is woefully inadequate; awareness of the disease, its risk factors and symptoms is critically low and new treatments are not being discovered quickly enough. So it’s hardly surprising that many women with ovarian cancer feel isolated and scared about what life has in store. But there is hope. Because there is Target Ovarian Cancer.
Target Ovarian Cancer is the award-winning ovarian cancer charity that works across the whole of the UK. Started in 2009, we work to improve early diagnosis, to find new treatments, and to provide support to women with ovarian cancer. A truly rewarding place to work, our greatest strengths are our enthusiastic and committed team and the amazing women we work with and support.
We are currently recruiting for these jobs:
This is a great opportunity for an individual with some existing experience of events fundraising looking to develop their skills. As a member of a small team, you’ll be able to quickly gain experience in a number of different areas of events fundraising, and will be keen to learn. You’ll be able to bring your enthusiasm for outdoor and sporting activities to the role, and use your insight to shape the future of the portfolio. You will be a well organised and friendly individual with excellent communication skills, as you will be the first point of contact for many of our supporters. Developing good relationships is the cornerstone of our strategy, and you will work with the Events Manager to ensure all our supporters receive excellent stewardship.
You will be joining a small but growing and high-performing team with big ambitions and at a very exciting time. With future plans to keep on growing, this is an opportunity to make a real difference for women with ovarian cancer.
