Who are Make 2nds Count?

Make 2nds Count is a patient and family focused charity dedicated to giving hope to women and men living with secondary breast cancer. We strive to do this by raising awareness and funding medical research that will contribute to advancing an increased quality of life for patients. Our community programme supports patients and families affected by this incurable disease.

Make 2nds Count is supported by an enthusiastic and motivated group of individuals who help us make our vision a reality. From permanent team members who are based at our head office in Edinburgh, to dedicated volunteers, patient champions and the dynamic board of trustees, our team is constantly evolving.

Secondary breast cancer, also known as metastatic, advanced or stage IV breast cancer, is a cancer that has spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. Parts of the body affected are usually the bones, liver, lungs, brain or the skin. Secondary breast cancer can be treated but it cannot be cured. Treatments aim to control and slow down the disease to enable patients to have the best possible quality of life for as long as possible.

The main purpose of the job:

The Community and Events Fundraiser will be responsible for raising funds from a range of sources within the local community. This will range from planning events, working with volunteers, developing fundraising initiatives and managing the day to day administration for the charity.

You will possess excellent analytical, communication, organisational and interpersonal skills. You will be able to demonstrate attention to detail and have a proven track record of building and managing relationships. Experience of fundraising would be desirable, but not essential. You will have a high level of passion and enthusiasm in working with us to achieve our vision of giving hope to those living with secondary breast cancer.

In joining our forward thinking, informed and compassionate team, you will have the opportunity to make a real impact within Make 2nds Count. This is a rewarding and a fast paced role where you will be working with a wide range of individual fundraisers, patients and key stakeholders supporting them with all of our fundraising activities.
