This is an exciting time to join Pancreatic Cancer Action in our Decade of change. If you are a proactive, enthusiastic, motivated fundraiser with a can-do attitude we need you to help us to achieve our ambitious strategy by 2030. As a Regional Fundraising Executive (Scotland) you will have a vital part to play in our Income Generation Team. This person will have ownership of supporters choosing to fundraise for PCA through products, DIY/community, Corporate and events fundraising in Scotland. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a dynamic and energetic team. We are looking for someone with the creativity and innovation to help increase income over the next couple of years and play a part in our rapidly expanding charity.
Pancreatic Cancer Action, (registered charity No.1137689) was founded in 2010 by a rare survivor of the disease. We are a small team headed by our Founder & Chief Executive who runs the charity plus a board of Trustees, which provides direction for the organisation. In August 2020 Pancreatic Cancer Action merged with Pancreatic Cancer Scotland making our team stronger than ever. Pancreatic cancer has only a seven per cent survival rate and this figure has not improved significantly for over 40 years. Despite it being the fifth biggest cancer killer in the UK, pancreatic cancer receives only three per cent of overall research funding. With a strong focus on early diagnosis, it is Pancreatic Cancer Action’s aim to improve survival rates through awareness, medical education, improved patient information and by funding research specifically into the early diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. Simply, we want more people diagnosed in time for surgery, currently the only potential for a cure.
