Salary £85,000 - £90,000 per annum
Every day, in the UK, around 130 men are diagnosed with prostate cancer and over thirty men die of the disease. Our story that prostate cancer had overtaken breast cancer as the third most common cancer killer hit the headlines in February 2018 and in January 2020, we announced that prostate cancer had become the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK, a decade ahead of previous estimates. The impact of the pandemic has added to the challenges for those facing prostate cancer. Our work has never been more urgent.
We have a vision of a world where lives are not limited by prostate cancer. In practical terms this means funding ground-breaking research, supporting men with advice and information, influencing for change in UK policy and health services and raising peoples awareness about this poorly understood disease. We need to grow our income to keep pace with our ambition and had been successful in doing that over recent years.
Our new Director of Fundraising & Supporter Engagement will be joining an agile, forward thinking, and creative team that moves at pace. Key to our success over recent years has been our audience and engagement strategy; our new Director will work in partnership with the Director of Communications to continue to drive and develop our approach in this area.
