Business Development Manager | Cancer Research UK

I am a dedicated and highly driven account manager, with vast experience in business development, project management, event delivery, and relationship development. During my career I have worked across various roles within the charity sector. Starting my career at Cancer Research UK working as an event executive. Moving to Canada working for the Canadian Cancer Society, developing the Relay For Life Youth Programme, and achieving 100% growth in income. Moving back to the UK I re-joined CRUK as an Account Manager successfully managing a partnership with Ronan Keating, delivering the 10th anniversary Emeralds & Ivy Ball, developing corporate partners and high-net worth individuals driving maximum value for CRUK, raising £1 million against a target of £850,000. Most recently I have taken on a dual role managing a celebrity partnership whilst taking on a corporate partnerships role as Business Development Manager looking after multi-million pound partnerships such as TK Maxx and Tesco.
