Music in Hospitals is the UK’s leading provider of the therapeutic benefits of live music for those in healthcare.  Delivering around 4,500 live music sessions each year, Music in Hospitals reaches over 100,000 adults and children in hospitals, hospices, care homes, special schools and day care centres.  Among our greatest strengths is our passion for improving the general health and wellbeing of people who have physical and mental illness, disability or frailty and who find themselves within the healthcare environment.   Our live music sessions can have a profound and lasting impact on clinical staff and carers as well as family and friends as well as those in care. 

If you are an experienced and passionate fundraiser and believe can raise awareness and make a genuine difference to our fundraising activity, then we would like to hear from you.

As an outstanding fundraiser you will have experience of raising awareness, developing new relationships with supporters whilst maintaining existing partnerships, and maximising target-driven income.

You will be innovative and resourceful, able to handle a demanding workload and have empathy with what Music in Hospitals is delivering.  You will need the confidence to promote Music in Hospitals work with our existing fundraising partners, and drive the development of new partnerships as well as creating new fundraising activities.  You will have excellent presentation, influencing and communication skills.  There will be occasional work outside of normal working hours and weekends throughout the year, when you will be representing Music in Hospitals at external events.   

Working within a small team of 8 in the office in Walton on Thames/Weybridge area, but interfacing with the offices in Cardiff, Manchester and Edinburgh, we are looking for a new team member who will enjoy working in a collegiate environment.
