Job description

This role would suit an enthusiastic fundraiser who wants to take their next career step, work strategically as well as operationally, build a team and grow a diverse income portfolio.

It’s the perfect time to join us. With a new senior team in place, we’re reviewing our strategy and making plans to do more to support our communities in West Suffolk and Thetford. We use our expert knowledge and skills to deliver inclusive, high quality, individualised palliative care and psychological support. We empower, inform and support individuals and communities to develop their understanding of death, dying, loss and end-of-life issues. And we’re here so that no-one has to face dying, death and grief alone.

Fundraising will be key to turning our ambitions into reality and we need great people to help make that happen. Are you looking for the next step in your fundraising career, a new challenge or the chance to make a meaningful difference?

The Head of Public Fundraising will be key to developing our acquisition and fundraising programme across all public-facing income streams. The role will report to and work closely with the Director of Income Generation to develop strategy as well as being responsible for operational plans and targets across Individual Giving, Legacies, Events, Community Fundraising, Supporter Care and Income Processing.

We’re looking for an experienced senior fundraiser who has led multiple income streams, with a particular focus on developing individual giving programmes. Knowledge of lotteries, gambling and legacy fundraising would be a bonus.

You’ll have excellent leadership skills, with the ability to coach and develop team members. An effective communicator, you will have good interpersonal skills and the ability to influence and motivate others. You’ll be excited by data, with good numeracy and analytical skills, and the ability to use insight to inform decision-making. Above all, you’ll be supporter-focused and passionate about delivering a great experience for our donors.

In return, we offer:

  • A competitive salary
  • Options for hybrid / flexible working
  • 25 days annual leave, plus public holidays, rising to 29 days.
  • Group Personal Pension plan (or NHS Pension, if applicable)
  • Employee Assistance Programme
