This is a full time post providing administrative and stewardship support at University Hospitals Birmingham Charity (‘UHB Charity’), the official NHS Charity for the four hospitals of University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust - Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, Heartlands Hospital, Good Hope Hospital and Solihull Hospital.
UHB Charity is dedicated to improving the experience of patients, their families and the staff who care for them.
The Charity raises funds to support patients of the four hospitals by providing new and innovative equipment, funding research and supporting patient and family welfare projects.
The Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham in particular has a world class reputation, and specialises in cancer treatment, organ transplantations and trauma care. It is also home of the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine, where the UK’s military patients are treated.
Heartlands Hospital has a specialist neo-natal unit and very busy children’s and maternity units.
Good Hope Hospital and Solihull Hospital serve the towns of Sutton Coldfield and Solihull.
Whilst mainly being based at Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham, the post offers some flexibility for working from home and the opportunity to work across other sites.
The Stewardship Assistant will work closely with other members of the hospital charity, in particular the Office Manager and Stewardship Officer, providing administrative and stewardship support across the four hospitals and the Charity overall.
Working as part of a team the post holder will have specific responsibility for accurate data inputting of donations onto our Raisers Edge database, Gift Aid claims, and correspondence with donors and fundraisers by letter, email and over the telephone.
The post holder will also support events put on by the charity and its supporters, and will have the opportunity to learn about stewardship, fundraising and events. This role can involve evening and weekend work at charity events and as such is subject to a 7 day working week contract, but with the majority of work being carried out Monday to Friday in standard office hours.
This role would suit someone looking to gain experience working within a hospital charity, either within fundraising, stewardship, administration or wider.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
