  • The ability to be innovative with the use of the CRUK brand
  • Experience using Microsoft Office, PowerPoint, Excel and our internal supporter database

What skills do I need?

  • Good attention to detail
  • Strong organisational skills
  • Ability to complete tasks on your own and within a team

Why we need you

The corporate partnerships team build high value, long term, and industry leading partnerships with companies to raise funds to beat cancer sooner. Our portfolio of corporate partners help to raise millions of pounds through staff fundraising, stock generation, and commercial donations.

This internship offers an exciting opportunity to volunteer within the Corporate Partnerships team on a number of projects. In particular this role will focus on creating communication and fundraising plans for a number of our partners, including The Works and Premier Foods.

In addition you will support existing partners in campaigns and events, contributing to their growth and success. Many of these campaigns and activities are repeated year on year, so someone who can bring energy, enthusiasm and creativity to the team would be really valuable!
