A little background first…

In-memoriam donations currently account for a significant proportion of their annual overall voluntary income. It is a vital source of their income and helps to ensure they can provide the highest quality care for their patients and their families.

They recognise that making a donation to the Hospice in memory of a loved one is a special way of commemorating a life and is a recognised and often popular method by which to support their work.

This role often is the first point of contact between the supporters and the fundraising team.  A sensitive approach is required in order to develop meaningful relationships. This requires listening to the aspirations and appetite of supporters in order to successfully introduce them to activities which may best suit their needs. This may include but is not limited to: challenges, organising their own events, specific fundraising initiatives or providing other types of support, such as volunteering, donating to their shops or attending Arthur’s Shed.

What you will be doing….

As their In Memory Giving Officer, you will deliver an in-memoriam giving programme that meets the needs of their community, which subsequently raises vital funds for the charity.

You will raise an awareness of in-memoriam giving and provide a selection of methods including their tribute funds and memory tree, to optimise donor support and engagement.

You will develop meaningful relationships with supporters in order to build lifelong support and establish strong relationships with colleagues and volunteers to build understanding and garner support for in-memoriam giving.

The person that they are looking for has...

  • Experience of creating a portfolio of sensitive and engaging in-memory fundraising activities
  • Experience of planning and managing successful projects (in a paid or voluntary capacity).
  • Experience of working in a customer/volunteer focused environment.
  • Experience of overseeing regular giving campaigns specific to in-memory using print and online avenues
  • Excellent project management skills to support with memorial fundraising events and initiatives
  • IT literate (MS Office, web and database experience).
  • Willing to work evenings and weekends, where necessary
  • Full driving licence
  • Regular use of a car (mileage will be paid)

You will be based at their Hospice in Cambridge with an option to work from home on some occasions.

If you are looking for a rewarding role which helps to make every moment count for people across Cambridgeshire living with or supporting someone with an advanced diagnoses or at the end of life, please get in touch.
