You will deliver exceptional experiences for supporters by developing and delivering an on-going fundraising events portfolio including challenge, sports and mass participation events, a schools fundraising programmes and special events like the upcoming black-tie ball.

  • managing fundraising in school settings to encourage support in our local community from a young age

Experience of charity event delivery would be warmly welcome, but we’d also be happy to consider fundraisers from other disciplines looking for a change of direction or events / projects professionals looking to for their first charity role.

Most importantly, you will have a genuine passion for hospice work and meeting the needs of existing and new supporters; you will be committed to putting the patient at the centre of everything that the hospice works to achieve.
