Manager - Individual Giving

  • Full time
  • £35,000
  • Howwood
  • Closing 27th June 2022

St Vincent’s Hospice is “The small hospice with the very big heart”. We have been serving the people of Renfrewshire and adjacent areas of North Ayrshire since 1988, delivering a range of community and in-patient specialist palliative care services. The hospice is situated in a rural location just outside the village of Howwood, a few miles from Glasgow Airport. The location of our hospice means that our team members can commute from the many beautiful country and seaside villages and towns within less than an hour’s drive, therefore offering a brilliant lifestyle choice for the successful candidate. We’re also happy to support flexible working patterns that enable team members to achieve a great work-life balance, including hybrid working.

Following a period of uncertainty and change in 2020, the hospice is under new leadership with a new Chief Executive and a new Director of Care and Quality and we have a new Director of Fundraising and Supporter Relations due to join us in August 2022.

Income generation is an absolutely key priority for the hospice and we are currently restructuring our fundraising team and supporting fundraising with both a brand refresh and a new website.

This role of Manager- Individual Giving is a key appointment for us as we look to make a step-change in our performance in this area. We want to attract an individual who is as ambitious as we are, someone who is a polished fundraising professional with plenty of drive and enthusiasm, as well as having genuine empathy with our cause. The successful candidate will be innovative, flexible and a superb relationship builder. Is this you?!
