What is the role?
Responsible for your own income & expenditure targets within the overall fundraising budget, you will be a key contact with all our supporters, building robust and sustainable relationships. You will give an excellent supporter experience by offering support and guidance to groups and individuals organising events and activities in aid of the hospice, helping them to fully maximise their fundraising opportunities.
To enable seamless organisation and promotion of initiatives, you will work with other teams across the hospice and in particular with our communications team. You will continuously review the community fundraising initiatives we offer to facilitate the best possible experience for our loyal supporters, as well as ensuring a good return on investment and growth in income.
As a confident and outwards facing person, you will talk to, and support, a wide range of individuals and groups, both face to face, via presentations and through effectively carrying out administrative duties. You will be an ambassador for the charity, keen to recruit sign-ups, encourage full fundraising potential and galvanise further support.
