Top job! Director of Income and Communications

  • Full time
  • £40,822 – £47,000
  • ACS Ayr Centre
  • Closing 17th May 2022

yrshire Cancer Support (ACS) is Ayrshire’s leading cancer support charity, providing free practical and emotional support for people affected by cancer. A fantastic opportunity has arisen to join the senior management team to lead the vital income and communications work of the charity.

For over 40 years, ACS has provided free lifeline services to people affected by cancer across Ayrshire. The charity relies on fundraising and income generation to offer a comprehensive range of key services including therapeutic support; hospital transport and emotional support at centres in Ayr and Kilmarnock. The recent acquisition of a new property in Ayr means plans are underway to further extend this provision to children and young people.

The Director of Income and Communications role is a pivotal leadership position within ACS, given the organisation’s reliance on income generation to ensure services are free to all who need them. The charity is therefore seeking an exceptional and inspiring individual to lead this work and direct the work of a dedicated fundraising and communications team.

In this role, you will report directly to the CEO and be accountable for income generation and communications strategies; for leading flagship campaigns and for building and maintaining key relationships as a strategic partner. You will drive the charities long term digital outreach and engagement work, supporting your team to understand its messaging and audiences in order to convert support into clear targets for donations, corporate giving and fundraising.

You will be an experienced leader with the ability to inspire and motivate your team to be high performing. A strategic thinker, you will provide effective support to the CEO in delivering strategic priorities whilst offering reliable expertise gained through a successful track record in income generation. You’ll understand the digital tools needed to support excellence in communications and marketing and you will bring ideas, enthusiasm and a passion for fundraising as well as knowledge of the requirements that guide good practice in this field. You don’t have to have been a senior manager to apply. You may be someone who has led projects, is a skilled team manager, has proven fundraising expertise, and is now hungry to take the next step into a senior leadership role.

You will be a people person who is entrepreneurial, creative, adaptable, resilient and outcome driven with high standards of integrity. You will have excellent communication skills and will be comfortable speaking with and presenting to a wide range of audiences – from families affected by cancer and members of the public who fundraise for the charity, to clinicians and health professionals, funders and major donors. The key will be your ability to relate to others and to build meaningful relationships that bring tangible outcomes. Most importantly, your values will truly align with ASC – compassion, kindness and care, delivered with integrity - and you will bring a strong desire and motivation to make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer and a determination that the services ASC provide remain free and accessible to those who need them.

In return, you will be joining an amazing team of dedicated individuals and you will enjoy a package of benefits including a salary of between £40,822 - £47,000 per annum; a pension package with the People’s Pension worth 8%; 35 days annual leave (inclusive of public holidays) TOIL for out of hours/weekend working; and a Corporate Health Plan with Westfield Health, offering a range of employee health benefits and discounts. Some out of hours and weekend working is expected and a driving licence and access to a vehicle is essential.
