We want to reach men on their turf – literally. We’re the Official Charity Partner of the EFL (the English Football League), and together we’ve raised over £2million toward our vital awareness work.

Our Man of Men is on the back of every EFL player’s shirt and our pin-badge is worn by football managers across the land. We’ve walked from Hartlepool to Wembley with Sky Sports anchorman Jeff Stelling, and we’ve worked with some of the most famous faces in sport to raise more awareness of the disease that affects 1 in 8 men.

Thousands of members of the football family have joined our fight and teamed up with us as we’ve completed mammoth bike rides, epic fundraising walks and stadium rebrands. We’ve forged award-winning partnerships with English Football League clubs, and been gifted season-long shirt sponsorships.

And that’s only just the start.

We’ve got ambitious plans for the future of our work in football. Want to be a part of it?

What the job involves
Working with our key partners within football, you will create fundraising opportunities, and bring on board new ones. You’ll be making sure the organisation gets the maximum value from our existing rights within the sport, and managing partnerships that work for both sides. You’ll also be making relationships at the highest level within clubs and governing bodies, and be the driving force behind our work in football.

What we want from you
You will manage our range of relationships and rights within football; be a safe pair of hands in keeping our existing plans on track, and have the entrepreneurial spirit to search out new opportunities. Overall, we need your skills to use football as a channel to raise money, and increase the public’s awareness of the most common cancer in men.

Why work for us?
We have a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer.
Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention and support, we can make prostate cancer a disease the next generation of men need not fear. Be part of a team that will put an end to prostate cancer being a killer.

The support we’ll provide
Join our team and you’ll be working at an award-winning charity that will help you learn, develop your skills and expertise, and achieve your highest aspirations. We provide everything you’d expect from a professional organisation – competitive benefits package, contributory pension scheme, life insurance, child care vouchers, and season ticket loan – but much more besides. Work with us and you’ll see your efforts pay off as we fight for a better future for men.
