And we pride ourselves in having a collaborative environment with open debate and positive challenge in the pursuit of excellence.

And because we are ready and willing to transform.

About the role:

This is a senior strategic role reporting directly into the Directors Team and working as part of the Senior Leadership Team. The person in post will provide strategic leadership of heads of department within the Income Generation Services.

Research tells us that more people will require our services in the future, therefore we need to make sure we can continue to deliver over the long term. This role will be strategically leading both our Fundraising and Retail Teams, empowering them to achieve the highest standards possible and making every penny received, work as hard as possible.

Our business development portfolio will grow income through new streams of work and other business opportunities whilst continuing to improve and diversify our current income generation activities. Critical to the success of this role is strengthening our relationships with existing partners and developing new strategic partnerships. This role will also be responsible for cultivating these relationships and harnessing the power of networking at a corporate and strategic level.

About you:

We’re looking for an inspirational and forward-thinking senior leader, who has a strong track record in building effective partnerships and delivering results-based service improvements. With a proven flair for shaping change and leading people, you will have the skills, experience at a senior level and ambition to deliver a real step change in our income.

You will be a strong and passionate communicator who has the ability to engage with a wide range of stakeholders, raising the profile of the Ayrshire Hospice brand.

The person in this role will not only have the business acumen from already working at a senior leadership level as well as the networking skills but also be collaborative in your approach. You will be able to communicate the vision of what can be achieved and you will be a values-led leader who will inspire the Senior Managers of the income generation teams to be ambitious and deliver stretching targets.

A bit more about us:

Hospice care is often profoundly misunderstood and at times very challenging: the work we do is uplifting and it is a great privilege, the impact we can have is life changing. Our hospice is a bright and dynamic place to work.
