A diverse and forward thinking charity, we have one of the largest and most successful fundraising teams in the sector, but - with the challenge of supporting the four million people living with cancer by 2030 - it's essential we further that success and meet challenging fundraising targets to expand our vital work.

Our volunteers play a vital role in raising income and awareness. We need to increase fundraising capacity through the recruitment, development and retention of volunteers. Your volunteer management experience means you're passionate about the importance of delivering a consistent and unrivalled volunteer experience.

You will relish the opportunity to lead on developing and implementing the regional volunteering plan to increase fundraising capacity across the East of England. Responsible for recruiting and developing volunteers in a range of roles, you will ensure we have volunteer support for the largest and noisiest cheer points to support our growing challenge events programme. You'll have the ability to build effective relationships with committed volunteer ambassadors and key stakeholders across the organisation to ensure a joined-up approach to volunteering.

Whether your experience has been gained in the charity or corporate sector, it's essential you can demonstrate your knowledge and experience of volunteering, fundraising, sales and marketing. You'll have strong communication, organisational and time management skills as well as the ability to model good practice using our Macmillan Volunteering Quality Standards. Though not essential, personal experience of volunteering would be beneficial.

In return for your own commitment, we commit to actively developing you and our benefits include private medical insurance, life assurance, pension, childcare vouchers, generous leave, and interest free loans for season ticket and gym membership.

This role covers Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk. A driving licence is essential as there will be travel required across these regions. As part of National team there will be occasional travel to London and other parts of the UK that might require an overnight stay.
