Job description

Closing Date: 6th April 2020

Interview Date: Wednesday 15th April

Contract Type: Permanent, Full time

Location Any regional office in South West England (possible locations include Bristol, Southampton, Swindon or Tiverton)


Gifts in Wills donated to Marie Curie mean that people living with terminal illnesses will get to enjoy their final days with the people that really matter to them, with support from a Marie Curie nurse.


This is a rare and exciting opportunity to join the team who inspire and engage our supporters, resulting in Gifts in Wills forming nearly a third of Marie Curie's voluntary income.


This is an essential role for developing our legacy income in the south west region. The successful applicant will be responsible for increasing the number of supporters who wish to include a gift in their Will to Marie Curie. They will find innovative and motivational ways to share the impact of gifts in Wills to a wider audience, primarily through conversations and engagements with supporters, staff, volunteers, and stakeholders in South West England.


If successful, you will use your knowledge and creativity to plan and deliver a yearly series of inspiring gifts in Wills events across the region, making the most of other regional opportunities to maximise impact. You will be the first point of contact on legacy matters for all regional Caring Services, Volunteering and Fundraising staff. Your excellent networking and relationship building skills will support you in inspiring staff and volunteers, ensuring they understand the importance of legacy income and are empowered to embrace gifts in Wills in their roles.


Educated to degree level or equivalent, you will be a confident communicator and influencer with strong presentation skills, able to build and develop strong relationships at all levels. You will also need excellent IT, marketing and administration skills to thrive in this role.


The successful applicant will be a very organised individual with experience of maintaining administration processes and financial records, whilst prioritising effectively and delivering multiple projects to deadlines. They will have experience of achieving financial targets, managing events, and providing excellent supporter experiences. An agile, open-minded attitude and a willingness to work occasional anti-social hours is essential.


The role can be based at any of our Marie Curie regional offices in the south west region, dependent on the successful applicant's location.


Every day of your life matters - from the first to the last. When you work for Marie Curie, you understand that better than ever. We're a passionate, committed and diverse team of more than 4,400 staff and 12,000 volunteers, here for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. We offer expert care, guidance, and support, to help them get the most from the time they have left. Everyone knows our daffodil, but it's our warmth, creativity and care that touch lives. Here, we take the time to really get to know the people we care for and those who love them. And we do whatever it takes to give them the final days and hours they deserve.


This role may close early if enough applications are received.
