Do you want to have the satisfaction of knowing you are contributing to Swindon’s only adult hospice? Use your passion and skills to make a real difference and join a much-loved charity with its huge supporter base.

We are entering an exciting new era where we must build on our historic success and thrive as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic and are seeking a Fundraising Manager to grow and develop our income.

What is the role?

As a senior member of the fundraising team, you will primarily be responsible for developing beneficial and lasting networks in the community and across the hospice, continually raising the profile of the charity and championing all aspects of our work to generate income that allows us to deliver our vital services. You will lead on longer-term planning relating to fundraising and engagement, as well as delivering supporter relationships, event planning and implementation, managing income streams, pipelines and exceeding income budgets.

A key element of the role will be to take responsibility for external community support and the internal upskilling of colleagues across the organisation on our fundraising approach, messaging and income generation needs.

In addition, you will lead and develop the Fundraising Community and Events team, to ensure the team deliver operational excellence, meet income targets and work collaboratively to deliver on the strategic aims of the fundraising team.

Our ideal candidate will have a proven background in charity fundraising, sales and/or management with experience of leading teams, developing opportunities and influencing stakeholders and have a proven track record of income growth in previous roles. If you have a good understanding of the charity sector, this would be an advantage.

In return, we offer a great range of employee schemes and benefits, including generous annual leave, free parking on-site, on-site café, employee assistance programme, wellbeing team, generous pension scheme, Blue Light Discount Card and so much more!

Hours: 37.5 per Week – Monday to Friday (Ability to work evenings and weekends is essential).

  • Fantastic interpersonal skills with the ability to be engaging
  • Excellent negotiation, influencing and stakeholder management skills
  • Knowledge of fundraising and the voluntary sector
  • Experience of initiating, developing and maintaining strong relationships both externally and internally
  • Excellent communication skills (written, verbal and high quality, bespoke presentations, reports & proposals)
  • High-level digital & social media skills
  • Driver, with a full, current UK driving license

It would also be great but not essential if you have:

  • Experience of working with the general public – public speaking an advantage
  • Experience of planning and organising events
