What the job involves

We have an exciting opportunity for a motivated fundraising professional to manage our Legacy and In-Memory team to deliver a programme of activity to increase income from legacy, in-memory and tribute fund supporters for Prostate Cancer UK.

You’ll oversee the administration of all legacy cases to secure vital legacy income and ensure regular, accurate reporting to senior stakeholders.

This role is responsible for developing and implementing legacy and in-memory marketing activity to recruit, retain and steward supporters by delivering timely, relevant and engaging communications that drive deeper connections between our supporters and the charity.

Working collaboratively with colleagues and external agencies, you’ll ensure that we put supporters right at the heart of our work, are led by their preferences and continually look at growing and diversifying the scope of our relationships.

What we want from you

Aside from excellent knowledge and experience of working in a legacy and in-memory giving environment, you’ll need to be comfortable managing our fast-growing legacy pipeline, overseeing the administration of our legacy cases to secure this vital income stream.

Passionate about the impact of legacies, you’ll be able to manage high-level, integrated, and organisational wide communication programmes to inspire people to leave a gift in their will. You’ll also possess first class communication skills and be at ease influencing and negotiating with internal and external stakeholders of all levels.

The ability to develop and manage business plans, expenditure budgets and marketing plans is essential, and you’ll need to use your excellent prioritising and decision-making skills to ensure you can keep to tight deadlines with changing priorities.

An effective leader, you’ll manage a team and need to actively role model our values and ensure you’re supporting diversity and equality of opportunity in the workplace.

You’ll also need to apply your knowledge of legal aspects related to charity and fundraising law, legacy fundraising, Direct Marketing including GDPR, Gift Aid requirements and sector best practice.

Why work with us?

Every man needs to know about the most common cancer in men – prostate cancer. It’s a real and present danger that takes over 12,000 of our dads, grandads, brothers and friends each year.

Prostate Cancer UK is the largest men’s health charity in the UK. We have a simple ambition – to stop prostate cancer damaging lives. We invest millions in research to revolutionise testing, treatment and care. We’re blazing a trail to a screening programme that could save thousands of lives with regular, accurate tests for all men at risk. And we work tirelessly to spread the word about risk and offer specialist support to people living with the disease.

Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we give men and their families the power to navigate prostate cancer.

What we offer

Join our team and be part of an award-winning charity. We’ll support you to develop your skills and expertise.

We offer a competitive benefits package, including:

  • Generous leave entitlements that increase with service
  • One ‘development day’ a month to use for training or personal development
  • Enhanced contributory pension scheme
  • Life insurance and group income protection
  • Health Cash Plan
  • Life and wellbeing advice and support via our Employee Assistance Programme
  • Discounted gym membership and high street shopping discounts
  • Loans for season tickets or cycles

Our commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion

At Prostate Cancer UK, we believe that equity, diversity and inclusion are essential to building a strong and innovative workplace, that represents, and can advocate for, the communities we support. It’s our ambition to become an anti-racist organisation, and our mission to advance racial equity in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.

We’re incredibly proud of our new Black Men’s Racial Health Equity Campaign, and our inclusive learning journey. We know that reaching marginalised communities that need us most, particularly Black men who are at a higher risk of prostate cancer, starts with better representation in our organisation. Therefore, we’re particularly interested in applications from those from marginalised and vulnerable communities. This will help us create an environment of inclusion where everyone can bring their authentic selves to work, where personal qualities are as important as professional experience, and our people feel seen and heard.

Our people networks

We’re learning more about the needs of our colleagues, and we’re excited to have recently launched three new people networks, sponsored by our Leadership team:

  • Pride – A safe space where LGBTQ+ colleagues — and our allies — can share their diverse lived experiences, celebrate LGBTQ+ culture and history, and create new ideas about how our organisation can be more inclusive and representative of LGBTQ+ people
  • Mind & Body – Here to increase awareness, promote wellbeing and support colleagues affected by neurodiversity, mental health problems, disability and long-term illness
  • Multicultural – Here to increase awareness and celebrate the different cultures and beliefs that we have in the organisation, so that we all have our cultures felt and feel welcomed

Wellbeing and hybrid working

Our hybrid working approach combines the best of flexible working – a positive work/life balance, inclusive and accessible platforms, and online information at our fingertips. We understand that everyone has different needs, and we strive to create opportunities for relationship building, collaboration and social time.

Each of our teams has a team agreement outlining when and how often we’re expected to be in our London Bridge office. We’re very welcome to work there more frequently. Office time is a commute, so we pay our own travel costs.

For this role we would expect the successful candidate to be coming into the London office typically around 1-2 days a week. Our team day is currently every Tuesday.
