Head of Income Generation and Business Development

Competitive salary plus benefits


Clan Cancer Support is a well-established and highly regarded, local charity providing emotional and practical support to people affected by cancer, their family, carers and friends. Services are freely offered to all from pre-diagnosis and diagnosis through treatment and beyond at 11 support and wellbeing centres located across north-east Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland. The charity’s aim is to help people live with and beyond their or their loved one’s cancer diagnosis and improve the quality of life for all those who turn to the charity for help and support.  For so many, cancer is no longer life ending, but it will forever be life changing. The charity has grown considerably over the last few years and this talented team has continuously responded successfully to the financial requirements of this ambitious charity in an increasingly challenging external environment.

The Head of Income Generation and Business Development will be tasked with capitalising on the opportunities presented by Clan’s current income streams whilst developing and future proofing sustainable, more commercial areas for income generation. A key element of the role will be to further develop and mentor the talented and committed income generation team to reach their full potential. You will also work closely with the Chief Executive as part of the senior management team, to deliver the charity’s strategic objectives.

The successful candidate will be highly credible leader with proven experience gained in business development possessing a successful track record of developing compelling commercial strategies that deliver increased revenues. Ideally, you will already be well networked at appropriate levels within the North-East business community and display the presence and maturity to win the confidence of this community and high net worth individuals. Previous retail and/or hospitality experience would be advantageous given the opportunity for the charity to further develop revenue in these sectors.

This opportunity exists to make a real impact on an already established, successful and respected charity. In return the appointee will be rewarded by having made a tangible and meaningful contribution to the lives of people affected by cancer, their family, carers and friends.
