Staff at Target Ovarian Cancer

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.

Community & Events Fundraiser

An exciting opportunity has arisen at the UK’s leading ovarian cancer charity to be a part of a growing Community & Events fundraising team. Target Ovarian Cancer is a dynamic and fast moving charity dedicated to achieving a long and good life for every woman with ovarian cancer. Our work is distinctive because we tackle the three biggest barriers to progress – late diagnosis, the lack of new treatments, and the isolation so often felt by women.  A truly rewarding place to work, our greatest strengths are our enthusiastic and committed team and the amazing women we work with and support.

This is an opportunity for a dynamic, lively and personable individual to manage and grow community & events fundraising to bring in significant income. Working with and supported by the Community Fundraising Manager, you will be responsible for stewarding supporters who are doing their own fundraising in their communities or through challenge events.

With experience of working to fundraising targets and brilliant organisational skills you will not be afraid to pick up the phone or write an engaging email to make our supporters feel special. You will also be bringing your focus on details and appetite for success to bear.

You will be joining a small but growing team with big ambitions. This is an opportunity to make a real mark and difference for women with ovarian cancer.

If you are interested please apply with your CV and a covering letter detailing why you are interested and how your skill set meets the requirements of the role.  Please email your application along with the equal opportunities monitoring form to Simon Taylor at jobs@targetovariancancer.org.uk with the job title as the subject. Applications close at 9am on Monday 16 January. Interviews will be held on a rolling basis so please apply early.  No agencies please.
