Work with brainstrust

A unique charity with an inspirational story and an exciting future. Our aim is to build a service to help everyone affected by a brain tumour so that they feel less alone, less afraid and more in control.

It’s no small task creating a ‘brain tumour support’ sector from scratch, but we’re well on our way.

Step inside brainstrust and you'll find talented people working together to improve the lives of everyone living with a brain tumour.

Fundraising Intelligence Officer - Paid internship (£16,835 per annum), 12 month contract. Based in our vibrant Leeds office.

This role is vital in helping us to inspire the right people, in the right way at the right time so that they do incredible things to help people living with a brain tumour. You will be helping us to understand the people that are so passionate about helping people with a brain tumour, and you will help us to make sure we are treating these people like the superheroes that they are. You will be involved in everything from research and data entry and analysis, to developing creative messaging that can change the world. The insights that you develop will bring incredible, meaningful purpose to our creative work. You will help us make fundraising at brainstrust more intelligent than it has ever been before. You will inspire creative ideas and messaging with the use of data and insight with the result that fundraising at brainstrust continues to be relevant, rewarding and inspiring.

The successful applicant will:

  • Work with our amazing fundraising team to organise and understand the data that we have and how we can best use it.
  • Spend time researching and understanding challenges and opportunities across the charity sector and work with the team to apply that learning to strategy and planning.
  • Develop innovative and creative ways of talking to people that want to help our work with inspiring messaging that reflects the insights gained from your analysis and research.
