Key Responsibilities:

  • Strategic Planning: Develop and implement a diverse engagement plan and portfolio for growth, focusing on voluntary income through relationship management and engagement. Create a strong legacy proposition, including will-writing services for patients and families.
  • Engagement: Bridge the gap between clinical care and lifelong donors by engaging patients, families, and clinical staff in in-memory and legacy activities.

About You:

We are seeking a dynamic professional with an excellent record in leadership and teamwork, event delivery, and financial management. You will have experience in individual giving, legacy, and marketing, bringing a strategic approach to achieve development and financial targets. You will be known for planning and executing diverse events, ensuring a strong focus on GDPR and compliance. Most importantly, you will be an ambassador and advocate for the Hospice. St Giles welcomes those with transferable skills from a broader fundraising background or similar sector who would love to work in a role like this.
