Oakhaven Hospice is seeking a Director of Fundraising, Marketing and Communications to lead the charity’s income, marketing, communications and retail operations.

Oakhaven has a long history of providing specialist palliative care and support to those facing life-limiting illness and their loved ones in both a home and hospice setting for the community of the New Forest, Totton and Waterside area; a catchment area of around 140,000 residents. The hospice is recognised as an expert in its field for providing care to those with the most complex of end of life requirements, ensuring that they help people when and where they need it most.

The role of Director of Fundraising, Marketing and Communications will be responsible for producing and delivering fundraising, marketing and PR strategies to ensure income and promotion for the hospice. You will also be responsible for identifying new income generation strategies including both traditional fundraising streams but also possible social enterprise income generation opportunities.

The charity is seeking an effective team player and leader with senior fundraising, marketing and communication-based experience, as well as with a proven track record in income generation. You will also have experience of formulating marketing and fundraising strategy, possess excellent written and verbal communication skills, and be adept in motivating and empowering your teams. Finally, you must be committed to the work carried out by our hospice.
