Overview of role

The Relationship Fundraising team is seeking a Community Relationship Fundraiser to develop and deliver Community Fundraising activities in the North area of our catchment. The post holder will be crucial to supporting the fundraising efforts at St Clare Hospice, maximising income from a range of events and campaigns whilst engaging with the local community.

Working at St Clare Hospice is a highly rewarding experience. You’ll work as part of a multi-disciplinary, hospice-wide team, at a highly valued local charity that supports people who need specialist palliative care in West Essex and East Hertfordshire. The specialist care St Clare Hospice delivers ensures those with the most complex conditions are cared for in a supportive environment. This means family members can become husbands, wives, sons, and daughters again, rather than carers.

We strive to develop staff engagement and satisfaction, maintain employee retention, and ensure St Clare Hospice is a preferred employer of choice. This role sits within our Relationship Fundraising Team – you will work closely with your fundraising counterparts, with support from our fundraising administrator. Your line manager will support and guide you as you develop in your role, giving you the autonomy and flexibility to excel.

Formal qualifications are not a prerequisite to carry out this role as training and development will be provided to the right candidate; we value the skills and experiences you bring.

Please read the job description (link below) for further details.

In return for your commitment, we offer a competitive salary and benefits package, generous leave allowance, pension and life assurance scheme, Employee Assistance Programme, free parking and the option to continue your membership of the NHS pension scheme.  We offer excellent development opportunities and are committed to supporting individuals in their learning and development.
