Advertising Sales Executive

Self-employed, commission only, flexible hours

Fight Bladder Cancer is seeking a freelance Sales Executive to work from our Chinnor offices, or from home, selling advertising space for our groundbreaking FIGHT magazine and our website. The magazine may still be young but we've had a wonderful response from clinicians and patients and carers - you can see copies in the downloads section of the website. This self- employed contract will initially be offered on a 3-month contract basis with the view to extending it, based on performance and growth. Payment will be per sale on a commission only basis. However, eventually we would like to offer the right candidate a permanent role. Strong interpersonal skills along with a good sales track record, an excellent telephone manner and high self-motivation are required. The successful candidate will be a confident self-starter who will generate new advertising revenue for our magazine and website. 

If you would like to apply for this role, please send your CV and a covering letter to us us at GetInvolved@fightbladdercancer.co.uk.  Alternatively, if you would just like to find out a bit more, please email us and we'll be happy to have a phone chat with you.

Volunteers - Office

Based Chinnor, Oxfordshire

This is a great opportunity to join our team in a small friendly office in Chinnor. In particular, we are expanding our fundraising team so we’d appreciate some help.  It isn’t necessary to have fundraising experience but you’ll need good admin/IT skills and a flexible approach. You'll be confident and have excellent interpersonal skills. You may see this as your opportunity to make a contribution to a very worthwhile cause or perhaps it's a stepping stone - gaining experience of fundraising within the charity sector. 

If your interests lie elsewhere, then do get in touch and we’ll discuss what’s possible.

To apply, please email your CV and a covering letter to GetInvolved@fightbladdercancer.co.uk. Naturally, our volunteers choose when they work so please give us an idea of approximately how much time you might be able to give us.

Volunteers - home based

At Fight Bladder Cancer we are always looking for people across the country who can help with our work. Whether you can spare just the odd hour or two or can commit to more time, there are many roles where your time can make a significant difference to what we can achieve.

We are currently looking for people to help us with our FIGHT clubs, which are our local support clubs across the UK, people who can be trained to be Bladder Buddies to help support people affected by bladder cancer on a 1 to 1 basis by phone or email and patients or carers who want to get involved with our research work including possibly being a patient representative on a clinical trial.

Perhaps you could become a local organiser for fundraising events near you? Or help us arrange an awareness event?

If you can spare some time to support Fight Bladder Cancer, do get in touch
