Charity People are delighted to be working with a national cancer charity, which strives to have a lasting impact on those affected by cancer, to recruit a dedicated and experienced Fundraising Compliance Manager.

This charity is one of the leading research and support charities dedicated to eradicating one of the most common types of cancer. They provide groundbreaking research and comprehensive support services and want to ensure that everyone diagnosed survives and lives well.

The Fundraising Compliance Manager will be instrumental in ensuring that all fundraising and marketing activities adhere to the highest compliance standards and evolve with the dynamic regulatory landscape. You will be the go-to person for regulatory queries, providing guidance to teams, and fostering a culture of best practice. Collaboration with the Data Protection Officer and proactive identification of opportunities for improvement are key aspects of this role.

Key responsibilities:

  • Fundraising Compliance: You will provide expert guidance on fundraising activities, ensuring alignment with regulations, respond to fundraising and data protection queries, maintain updated knowledge of Data Protection, UK GDPR, and related regulations, and share insights with teams. You will develop and manage clear policies and procedures for compliance, deliver engaging training sessions, and represent the charity at external compliance forums.
  • Monitoring and Reporting: You will develop a comprehensive complaints framework, shifting the culture of feedback to drive learning, produce reports on complaints, assess actions and trends, and prepare the annual complaints report to the Fundraising Regulator. You will also lead internal audits of key fundraising activities and support teams in monitoring third-party agencies.
  • Data Protection: You will maintain a strong relationship with the legal governance and compliance team, attending weekly meetings, participate in Data Protection working groups and champion compliance in fundraising processes. You will also support the Data Privacy Manager in developing tools, checklists, and procedures for Data Protection, and manage the library for marketing consents and data collection statements.
  • Gift Aid: You will stay informed on HMRC guidelines for Gift Aid schemes and ensure compliance in declarations and records and be the point of contact for Gift Aid queries, creating and maintaining support materials.

The Fundraising and Compliance Manager will have strong knowledge of fundraising activities and regulations, including data protection, with previous experience working with fundraising and marketing teams. The successful candidate will have experience in writing policies and procedures, compiling insight reports, and categorising fundraising complaints. You will be able to manage internal relationships and influence senior managers, solve problems, and have excellent organisational skills and attention to detail. You will be a strong communicator to deliver engaging presentations and training.

This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a supportive and successful team. If you are excited by this opportunity and have the relevant skills and experience to apply, we would be delighted to hear from you.
