Philanthropy Fundraiser


Salary - Circa £32,000

The charity an award-winning children’s hospice dedicated to bringing comfort and care to families across Dorset and Wiltshire.  It is an exciting time as our hospice in Wiltshire has recently opened and we are now looking for an outstanding individual to join our team.

We are looking for an innovative individual who is an exceptional communicator and who has the energy and drive to take on this exciting and demanding new role. 

With strong customer relationship management skills they will need to be proactive at building and maintaining relationships to inspire, engage and build rapport with people at all levels including our celebrity Patrons and our Ambassadors.

The ideal candidate will have a soft and approachable manner which enables them to persuade high net worth individuals, and those of a significant profile, to support the charity.  A good problem solver with strong time management skills and the ability to set clear agendas and objectives, they will be able to write tailored funding proposals and co-ordinate a programme of high-level fundraising events to generate income and raise awareness of the charity’s work.

With a highly organised and pro-active work ethic the ideal candidate will be confident working on their own initiative and remotely, whilst also being a key member of the fundraising team working closely with colleagues across the organisation. 

We have ambitious plans to ensure that no one in need of our care and support has to be turned away, and this post will be integral to achieving this goal.

This is a role that would suit not only an individual with a background in fundraising but also someone who has developed the relevant skills in another sector which they now want to apply in a more fulfilling role.

A full driving licence and use of a car for business purposes are essential as this role will require travel throughout Wiltshire and also travel to attend regular meetings with the Poole-based Philanthropy team.

If you’re interested in joining a leading organisation with a strong brand and positive, inspiring working culture then we would love to hear from you, quoting our reference JO557.
