About us

Myeloma UK is the only organisation in the UK dealing exclusively with myeloma – the second most common form of blood cancer. It originates in the bone marrow and currently affects around 17,500 people in the UK. Whilst treatable, myeloma is not yet curable.

Our ultimate goal is to find a cure. We are dedicated to ensuring that patients get access to the right treatment at the right time, and to improving standards of treatment and care through research, education and awareness raising. We also provide a range of information and support services to patients, family and friends to help deal with a diagnosis of myeloma.

About this new and exciting role

This role will work with the Individual and Planned Giving Manager to maximise income from individual giving, with a specific focus on Legacy and In Memory gifts. Other areas of giving –i.e. Lottery, direct debit and celebration giving, are also a focus of this role so there will be plenty of opportunity to grow all areas of individual giving- a crucial part of the work of Myeloma UK.

About you

This is a great opportunity to work for a national UK charity. You will ideally have demonstrable experience in developing income from legacy and in memory giving.

Self –motivated and a team player you will have excellent organisational, communication and IT skills. Relationship development and presentation skills are important for this role, along with the ability to produce quality written work.

The ability to manage a wide range of tasks alongside the willingness and flexibility to develop and expand this role are vital.

You will also have the ability and willingness to attend meetings and events outside normal working hours and travel as required.
