To help achieve our ambitious growth targets we are looking for a highly motivated Philanthropy Manager to co-manage our major giving programme in Scotland. The role holder will be challenged to secure philanthropic support for Breast Cancer Care, covering the whole of Scotland, through building relationships with existing major donor prospects, trusts and foundation and cultivating new relationships.

The successful candidate will preferably have a strong track-record of face-to-face cultivation and making the ask for philanthropic support, but candidates with transferable skills will be considered. Key to us is that you are experienced in growing one to one relationships and in being a collaborative team player. You will have outstanding interpersonal and communication skills, and a demonstrable track record of planning and executing personalised cultivation and stewardship plans.

You will be a member of a team of six, four of whom are based in London, and one is your job share partner based in Glasgow (returning from maternity leave in November). Therefore elements of flexibility, partnership working and an openness to travel will be required. We will also look for you to be able to self motivate and work independently where needed. You will be part of a wider team of managers in the Scotland office, tasked with supporting and motivating more junior members of the team where appropriate.

Both the existing job share partner and head of the team are available to talk should you wish to know more.


Breast Cancer Care is an inclusive employer committed to developing a diverse workforce.
