Events and Community Fundraising Assistant - Full Time - 37.5 hours per week

Salary £18,960 per annum

This role provides a rare opportunity for candidates who are perhaps starting out into fundraising with voluntary or limited fundraising experience or, those with corporate events experience and some voluntary experience and who would like to use their transferable skills to benefit a charitable cause.
With a responsibility for assisting in the development and delivery of community fundraising events and campaigns, ideal applicants will be capable of bringing a sense of enthusiasm and creativity to their fundraising. They will work closely with the Events and Community Co-ordinator and the Marketing and Communications Officer, to maximise the support of the local community and enable supporters to effectively fundraise on the Hospice’s behalf. As this role further involves drafting press releases and handling social media messages, effective communication and organisational skills are required.

Events and Community Fundraising Co-ordinator - Full Time - 37.5 hours per week

Salary £30,357 per annum

This role provides a rare opportunity for candidates who have prior managerial experience or, are keen to take the next step in their career. Applications are therefore welcomed from both types of candidate.
With a responsibility for developing and delivering a robust plan of community fundraising events and campaigns, our ideal candidate will engage proactively with the wider community and provide line-management to the Events and Community Assistant. Effective communication with external supporter groups and Hospice team members is therefore an essential part of this role, as is the ability to provide constructive feedback.

Trusts Fundraiser - Part Time - 22.5 hours per week

Salary £26,301 (pro-rata)

Working on a part-time basis, the Trusts Fundraiser will undertake an essential role in the Fundraising Team and be tasked with raising unrestricted income and funding for developments and specific projects.
With prior trust fundraising experience and a proven track record in winning bids, they will be adept at identifying trusts which are likely to support the Hospice and putting together compelling cases for support. Confident in determining research application criteria, our ideal candidate will further nurture relationships with new and potential supporters and be able to effectively convey complex information both verbally and in written form. Excellent communication skills are therefore essential for this role.
