Liz Shiels is the newest member of the fundraising team and is looking forward to meeting our fantastic supporters.
Hi, I’m Liz Sheils and I’m the Fundraising Manager for North Birmingham and the Black Country. I joined Macmillan in May 2015 and I have loved every minute so far!
Before joining Macmillan, I worked for Cancer Research UK as a Fundraising Manager in Worcestershire. At CRUK I had the opportunity to work with some amazing companies and supporters, and enjoyed helping to organise events from fashion shows to coffee mornings. Before this I was a Store Manager for years in a large retail chain, and gained lots of experience of managing teams and working with the public in a fast paced environment.
However, after having been very poorly with a bone tumour in my shoulder, I decided that I wanted to change careers and do a job where I know I can make a difference to people affected by cancer, and here I am! I love meeting the amazing people who support Macmillan, and still wake up every morning feeling so lucky to be in such a fantastic job that means so much to me.
I am the Area Fundraising Manager for the Birmingham and Black Country region and together with Emily, Louise and Eloise, we make up a team absolutely dedicated to supporting as many local people and businesses with their fundraising as we can. My job is a great one, I get to meet so many inspirational people, doing incredible things for Macmillan. Of course, there is always more that we have to do to be able to continue to support the increasing number of people affected by cancer, and with your help, we will be able to do so. Thank you to everyone who has supported us, you're amazing.
I’m Fundraising Manager for South Birmingham & Solihull. I’ve been part of the Birmingham team since December 2014 although I have worked within charity fundraising for over 6 years so far. I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of fundraising, not just within my career but in my own time too. I’ve arranged all sorts of events including a Black Tie Ball and a Bollywood event that were really successful. I also like to take on a challenge and have completed the Wolf Run twice in 2014, the London Moonwalk in 2013 and many 5k and 10k runs. Being a Fundraising Manager for Macmillan is my dream job and I feel very lucky to be part of such a great team!
I am the Fundraising Manager for Central and West Birmingham and Black Country West, think of the three corners of the area being Birmingham, Dudley and Wolverhampton and then all the bits in between! I have been with Macmillan almost two years and love the variety of the day to day work. I’ve worked in fundraising since graduating, originally working in London before coming to the West Midlands a few years ago. My colleagues describe it perfectly, every day is different and we speak to such a wide range of people it’s amazing to hear our supporters stories. No one should face cancer alone and I’m very proud to work for a charity that does so much to help people affected by cancer.
