Do you want to work for a dynamic national charity at the centre of shaping and responding to end of life issues at this challenging time? Hospice UK is seeking an outstanding and detail oriented administrator who has excellent organisational, written and verbal communication skills. They will have a flair for relationship building as well as lots of initiative, be a strong team player and also able to work autonomously, as well as have a passion for our cause.

Hospice UK is the national charity for hospice and end of life care. Working to ensure all adults and children living with a terminal condition receive the care and support they need, when they need it. We believe that everyone, no matter who they are, where they are or why they are ill, should receive the best possible care at the end of their life. No one should die in avoidable pain or suffering.

You are looking to develop your skillset and gain greater experience with trusts and major donor fundraising; and we need a motivated and enthusiastic administrator! This is a great opportunity if you are ambitious and have drive, intelligence, and a passion to excel. Hybrid working is part of the deal too, so you will be looking to work between the office and home, with a mixed working pattern to suit both you and the charity’s needs.

The role

The Major Giving Administrator role will see the successful candidate developing and managing their own workload and that of the team within a leading national healthcare charity. You will help us grow and reach our ambitious new income targets.

You will be given the opportunity to work with major funders like the National Lottery Community Fund, and learn how to manage such partnerships through strong administrative support. You will have direct responsibility for managing our established pipeline of small to medium sized Trusts, and will be supported to expand this by successfully researching, cultivating and bringing on board new donors, to grow unrestricted income for the charity.

You will also be given opportunities to support the team in developing our high value fundraising programme for individual donors though bespoke events, briefings and meetings; and managing our celebrity supporters programme too.

Details of the role can be found in the job description and person specification which is available on our website.

The team

We are a supportive and collaborative team, with many years of fundraising experience between us. Hospice UK offers a vibrant and rewarding work environment within the Income Generation department.  With a great team culture of sharing, learning, social activities, and regular meet-ups. We support each other and we celebrate our successes!

At Hospice UK you will have the structure, support and opportunities to develop a stellar track record and work towards your future career goals. We pride ourselves on providing excellent career development opportunities for fundraisers, including internal and external training opportunities.

About You

You are a positive, creative, and proactive individual who embraces challenge and a diverse workload. You need to be a well organised self-starter with excellent written and verbal communication skills, possess fantastic CRM database and research skills, and pride yourself on your organisation skills and attention to detail. You will be able to quickly form positive relationships with internal and external partners, and act as a representative for the organisation.

Other benefits:

We provide an excellent benefits package including: hybrid working, a generous annual leave entitlement (increasing with service), wellbeing programmes, matched pension contributions, private health care options, and access to an employee assistance programme.

Initially you will be expected to be on site for 2/3 days a week for the first three months during your induction. This will be reduced to 2 days on site and 3 days working from home after first three months.
