Do you have a strong track record of fundraising within the charity sector? We are looking for someone who can manage corporate and community fundraisers, develop fundraising events, both locally and nationally; as well as being able to write develop, and submit successful funding applications to trusts and other potential funding sources for various TCF projects.

As our ‘Corporate and Community Fundraising Manager’ you will develop, deliver, and manage a range of corporate and community fundraising initiatives that will help the Throat Cancer Foundation (TCF) promote and deliver its services.

About Us

Founded in 2012 we are a UK charity that provide support, advice and information to patients and their loved ones who are affected by cancers of the head, mouth, neck, chest, and those throat cancers caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). We also campaign rigorously for universal HPV vaccination to prevent any future devastating throat cancer cases. Raising awareness of HPV and how it causes throat cancers has been and continues to be a large part of our work.

About the role

The successful applicant will work closely with the CEO, the management team, and Trustees to implement, develop and deliver a fundraising strategy that meets the charity’s challenging income targets. This post will play a vital role in helping us to deliver our range of throat cancer support programmes to patients, families, as well as to medical professionals and the scientific research sectors. This is a unique and challenging role, which will see the successful applicant working on a variety of projects at any one time, whilst working under pressure to deliver results. It is therefore important that anyone in that role has great communication skills as well as experience of managing fundraising events on a nationwide scale.


  • Fundraising duties as required.
  • Be the customer service face for all fundraisers and fundraising activities.
  • Play a key role in the development and implementation of TCF’s community fundraising activities and third-party events.
  • Work with the Business Development Manager and CEO to develop key messages, briefings, and positioning statements to ensure consistency and maximise the impact of our work.
  • Create, manage, and deliver robust project plans for allocated events delivering on set income targets.
  • Review and adapt current events in the portfolio to maximise supporter engagement, retention and income growth.
  • Booking and liaising with all suppliers involved with events and building and maintaining strong relationships with them.
  • Working across the charity and externally, to significantly grow both volunteer numbers and activity.
  • Develop the way we speak about volunteering, our brand, and associated materials, in order to attract more volunteers with the skills we need.

This description does not attempt to describe all the activities of the post but illustrates the role with examples. It is therefore subject to alteration and development and will be reviewed with your line manager as required.
