Individual Giving Fundraiser – full or part time, office based or hybrid working

Closing Date: Monday 4th July 2022

Interview Date: week commencing 11th July 2022

Salary: £23,225 – £25,628 per year



Here at St Leonard’s Hospice we want to provide excellent care and support to even more people living with life-limiting illness, and to those they care about – at the Hospice, at home and in the community.

Looking to the future, we have created the role of Individual Giving Fundraiser to find and engage more people who support this mission and provide meaningful experiences through which those supporters can play their part in enabling this vital work.

Building on a solid foundation of insight-based fundraising, the Individual Giving Fundraiser will be expected to understand donors’ motivations, deliver outstanding supporter experiences and build longer, stronger relationships with our cash donors, regular givers and weekly lottery players.

Currently, our work to attract new supporters in these areas is a mix of direct mail, email marketing and face-to-face fundraising. We are by no means limited to these methods though, so in addition to being able to plan and land a direct-response campaign, you’ll also need to be able to come up with and test new ideas. You will also be expected to keep up with emerging trends in individual giving and make sure we’re always in position to harness the potential of new activities, channels and platforms.

Ultimately, your success will be measured by long-term growth in sustainable income through individual giving, within which our externally-managed weekly lottery has been identified as a strategic priority for growth. As such, this role is ideal for anyone looking to specialise in individual giving and / or direct-repsonse fundraising. There is a wealth of experience in these areas in the existing team, so this is a perfect opportunity to learn more and develop as a specialist while raising vital funds for a great cause.

To proceed with your application, you’ll need to demonstrate your understanding of the basic principles of fundraising, as well as explaining how your skills and previous experience (in fundraising or marketing / communications) make you suitable for a role engaging our amazing supporters.

This post is either full time (37.5 hours a week) or part-time (hours TBC) with occasional evening and weekend work. We are open to hybrid working between home and the office.

Subject to eligibility, successful candidates may retain/ continue their NHS pension when joining.
