Havens Hospices are seeking a motivated, energetic and innovative fundraising professional to join their team.  This role will be central to developing and implementing our ambitious plans to grow our fundraised income over the next 3-5 years, with investment committed from the board to develop our Individual Giving portfolio.  In-Memoriam, Lottery, Regular Giving, Direct Mail, Legacy and, of course, Digital fundraising are all central to our growth plans and although they all start from a strong position, we require the input and guidance of a driven, insightful and creative fundraising manager to take us to the next level.

Do you have the creativity to acquire new donors, the stewardship expertise to develop our donor relationships and the acumen to invest in the right activities to grow our income?  Can you lead a team of fundraisers to deliver an ambitious plan to grow our income?

This opportunity gives the right person an opportunity to make a real difference to people and families of all ages facing complex and incurable illness.  Your work to grow our income through Individual Giving will mean that we can continue to expand our services and reach more families when they need us the most.

At Havens Hospices we care for children, young people and adults with complex or incurable conditions. Our specialist Care Teams can support them and their family living throughout illness, death and bereavement, in the comfort of their own home and through our hospice services, Fair Havens, The J’s and Little Havens.

Although you may not be giving direct care to our families, this role will have a direct effect on our care services.

In return for your expertise and passion, you will receive a competitive salary package and most of all, by making the most of every day you work at Havens Hospices you’ll be helping us continue ‘Making every day count’ for those who need us most.
