Prospect Research Manager

Our Prospect Research team make a major contribution to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity’s high value supporter base, by maximising its engagement with existing and potential supporters. We are looking for a highly motivated professional who thrives on working in a fast-paced environment within a large team.

 

Join the team

The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity raises money solely to support The Royal Marsden, a world-leading cancer centre. We ensure our nurses, doctors and research teams can provide the very best care and develop life-saving treatments, which are used across the UK and around the world.

We are halfway through an ambitious three-year strategy that will deliver £80m of funding to support a world-class programme of research, treatment and care. We are also in the final stages of a £70 million capital appeal to build the Oak Cancer Centre at The Royal Marsden in Sutton. The Philanthropy & Partnerships (P&P) directorate has led much of this fundraising, successfully securing a lead donation of £25 million and multiple 7 and 6 figure donations from trusts and foundations, major donors, corporate partners and special events/high value committee supporters. The Charity is now working closely with the hospital on exciting plans for a new major redevelopment project to launch in 2022/23 on the Chelsea site.

The Role

As Prospect Research Manager, you will lead on much of the P&P donor identification and pipeline management. You will work closely with the Head of Philanthropy Research & Operations and Prospect Research Executive to deliver the prospect research, due diligence, pipeline management and information management function within P&P. By doing so, you will be making a major contribution to growing The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity’s high value supporter base; and to maximising its engagement with existing and potential supporters. You will play a crucial role in planning fundraising appeals for core hospital grants as well as future capital projects of priority to The Royal Marsden.

We are looking for a highly motivated professional who thrives on working in a fast-paced environment within a large team. You will have good knowledge and experience of philanthropy fundraising and an ability to work closely with key internal stakeholders to support the development of relationships between philanthropists and The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. You will need to be highly accurate in your work, an excellent communicator and able to work collaboratively as part of a team.
