    At Cancer Research UK, we exist to beat cancer.

    We are professionals with purpose, beating cancer every day. But we need to go much further and much faster. That's why we we're looking for someone talented, someone determined, someone like you.

    What will I be doing?

    We have a fifteen-month fixed term opportunity for you to join us as an Events Manager in our Philanthropy directorate. In this role you'll lead on the planning and delivery of key events within the Philanthropy programme, including unique money-can't-buy experiences, science talks, dinners and drinks receptions. These events will profile excellence in cancer research to help attract, engage and drive donor loyalty and grow income.

    This is an exciting time to join the CRUK philanthropy team, as we prepare to launch an ambitious multi-million-pound fundraising campaign in 2024. The events team will play a key role in launching the campaign to our key philanthropic audiences, by designing and delivering a very special signature event in February 2024. The Events Manager, in close collaboration with the events team, will play a key role in the organisation and delivery of the launch event.

    Key duties include:

    • Managing a range of events end-to-end, from conception and planning through to delivery and reporting.
    • Using insights and data to develop in-depth knowledge of our audience in order to create compelling event concepts and engaging event content.
    • Working closely with Events and Comms colleagues and developing strong relationships with wider Campaign & Engagement team.
    • Liaising with editorial and design teams to coordinate high-quality event invitations and materials.
    • Forecasting and managing expenditure for each event to ensure it is delivered within budget.
    • Providing on-the-day support at events as needed. This will include occasionally working outside office hours.

    What skills are we looking for?

    We're looking for candidates with some solid experience events management. You'll have strong stakeholder management skills and be able to work well under pressure, managing multiple tasks.

    • Experience of events management.
    • Ability to manage conflicting priorities within a fluid working environment.
    • Proven ability to influence, persuade and negotiate with people across teams and levels, including senior leaders.
    • Project management experience.
    • Problem solving ability with a positive attitude and minimal guidance.

    What will I gain?

    Each and every one of our employees contributes to our progress and is supporting our work to beat cancer. We think that's impressive.

    In return, we make sure you are supported by a generous benefits package, a wide range of career and personal development opportunities and high-quality tools, policies and processes to enable you to do your job well.

    Our benefits package includes a substantial retirement plan, a generous and flexible leave allowance, discounts on anything from travel to technology, gym membership, and much more.

    We review pay annually and aim to recognise individual performance and achievements.

    We don't forget people have lives outside of work too and so we actively encourage a flexible working culture.

    Our work - from funding cutting-edge research to developing public policy - will change the world. It's exciting to be part of our team.
