This is a unique role, perfect for someone who is self-motivated and looking for that work life balance by working part time, with some working from home. Fundamental to this role will be the ability to write successful funding bids, and you should have demonstrable experience in this area alongside a knowledge of Hospice care.

✅ Role Type: Permanent
💰 Pay: £27,046 per annum (pro rata)
📅 Closing Date: 7th November 2021



  • As a key member of the wider income generation team you will lead on income growth from charitable trusts
    and foundations. You will solely be responsible for trusts and foundation applications and relationship
    management with funders. You will work to maximise on the grant needs of the hospice whilst working with
    key audiences and a wide range of stakeholders to create an effective income stream.
  • The post holder will be highly skilled, effective communicator who writes compelling well-researched funding
    applications and who collaborates with multiple internal and external stakeholders to maximise funding
    opportunities. You will be responsible for ensuring notifications of grants and trusts are dealt with effectively,
    in order to achieve annual income targets. This role will involve working collaboratively across all directorates
    to raise the profile of the hospice and secure the wellbeing of patients, carers and their families.
