Description

Role Profile


We’re Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s largest breast cancer charity – and we’re dedicated to funding research into this devastating disease. We believe that if we all act now, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live.


Overview of directorate


The Fundraising & Supporter Engagement directorate is responsible for income generation, supporter growth for Breast Cancer Now and a main driver of the Breast Cancer Now brand.


Within the Fundraising Directorate, the Corporate Partnerships and Engagement team is a team with a clear sense of purpose.12 strong, split between new business and account management, it generates over £7m per year and has developed some of the most high profile corporate partnerships in the sector.


This role will report into the Fundraising Directorate but will work closely with departments across the organisation, particularly with the Research and the Communications Directorates.


Background


We know that to reach our goal of ending breast cancer deaths by 2050 it is vital that we work in new, collaborative ways. We will seek out and develop new partnerships and collaborations that have the potential to accelerate the progress we want to make in research.


In the last year we have launched the Breast Cancer Now Catalyst Programme, an initiative which aims to bring together Europe’s leading breast cancer researchers and the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies to pool resources and stop women dying from breast cancer by 2050.


The first collaborator signed up to the Catalyst Programme is Pfizer Pharmaceuticals. Pfizer’s commitment allows academic researchers unprecedented access to certain drugs in Pfizer’s oncology pipeline, opening up some of its existing and experimental assets to independent research.
