An exciting opportunity has arisen for a General Manager to take the helm and be responsible for the day to day running of Kids Cancer Charity.

Kids Cancer Charity aims

• To improve the quality of life for children/teenagers affected by cancer
• To provide emotional and practical support that complements and adds value to the services provided by the statutory authorities
• To recognise that childhood cancer affects the entire family

With this in mind the General Manager will need to recognise the value of providing positive experiences for them to look forward – a goal for them to achieve and something that will help them through their difficult time. Since our inception in 1989, the need for this service has grown steadily that has resulted in a constant increase in the referrals received.

The General Manager will be responsible for the day to day running of two contrasting offices (Fundraising and Service provision) and be able to develop and foster good working relationships with all people that come into contact with the Charity.

The purpose of the role will be to oversee the whole operation with a commercial eye, whilst always keeping the families and children at the heart of everything. Leading and developing two teams to achieve their aspirations and showing resilience to adapt to the needs of the Charity.

Who are we?

Over the years, we have gained a reputation as a professional organisation with the highest standards of care and support, with a deep understanding of what it means to have a child affected by cancer and the distress that this brings to families.

About you:

What has the pandemic taught us about the public’s perception of charities?
In this episode of the Charity Times Leadership podcast, we take a look at what the pandemic has taught us about the public’s perception of charities. Charity fundraising platform, Enthuse, recently released its quarterly donor research study, which highlighted significant shifts in donor behaviour throughout the duration of the pandemic. Not only does the report highlight an overarching sense of positivity towards the sector, but a propensity for younger generations to give more generously, too. Lauren Weymouth is joined by Enthuse CEO, Chester Mojay-Sinclare to discuss more.

The importance of the ‘S’ in ‘ESG’
In this episode, Lauren Weymouth is joined by Ketan Patel, equities fund manager at EdenTree, to delve into the issue of social investment and why that all-important ‘S’ in ESG is more relevant now than ever before. The social element of ESG often gets forgotten when thinking about investing in more ethical and sustainable ways. But, after a challenging year for all areas of society, social injustice has been highlighted, and there’s a much greater need for charities to put people at the heart of their investment decisions.
