Interview date: TBC
Are you a ‘hands-on’ person who is comfortable working both with the Fundraising Team here at St Leonard’s and with businesses and individuals from the local community? Do you relish the opportunity to lead, develop, and expand key fundraising streams for St Leonard’s Hospice?
Do you set high standards and have the ability to bring fresh ideas to an established high-performing team with plenty of energy and enthusiasm? Are you committed to putting ‘the patient at the centre of everything we do”?
Your experience will be in fundraising in the charity sector with a real flair to meet and exceed fundraising/income generation targets. You will already have a proven track record in fundraising in the third sector. You will be excited by the prospect of joining an organisation in the process of implementing a new vision for its future, and looking to embrace a culture of innovation and continuous improvement. Most importantly, you will have a genuine passion for hospice work and meeting the needs of existing and new supporters.
You will deliver exceptional fundraising by supporting the Head of Fundraising and members of the Fundraising Team with on-going fundraising events, stewarding major donors and corporate supporters and developing new innovative ideas for future fundraising initiatives.
It is essential that you enjoy a challenge, with an eye to how we can strategically grow these areas of fundraising.
