About NHS Lothian Charity

We work in partnership with NHS Lothian and other health-related organisations. Together we enhance the experience of patients, families, carers and staff across Edinburgh, Midlothian, East Lothian, and West Lothian. Through the generous donations of our supporters, we help to save lives, improve the quality of life, support education, innovation, and research.

About the role and you

Are you passionate about supporting people to be a force for good through their charitable giving? Are you a creative and caring communicator, who will put the needs of the donor at the heart of everything you do? If so, you could help your local NHS Charity achieve its ambition to deliver outstanding care

throughout the full healthcare journey to more local families.

If you are a fundraiser who excels at building trusting relationships and can adapt your style to suit your audience, this could be the next step in your fundraising career. If you’re up for the challenge of building on your skills to become knowledgeable in the principles of individual giving, legacy, and in-memory

fundraising, we’d love to hear from you.

In return for your expertise, you’ll become part a high performing team and benefit from a trusting and supportive working culture.

The Planned Giving Fundraising Officer (maternity cover) will work closely alongside the Planned Giving Manager to design and deliver a strategy for this area of fundraising. With the support of the Planned Giving Manager, this role will create and implement marketing plans for a lottery product, regular giving, and plans that link inmemory gifts to legacy fundraising and stewardship. The successful candidate will support the Planned Giving Manager to design and deliver a programme of appeals and campaigns to achieve growth from all our audience segments. Using a mix of fundraising channels, you will use your warm communication skills to build and retain relationships with individuals, regular donors, legators, and in-memory donors, to ensure the long-term success of the programme.

This is an exciting time to join the team as we’re investing in developing this key area of fundraising for the charity. This is a maternity cover position within our recently established engagement team. The role will benefit from the support of an experienced team but will also provide ample opportunity for creative thinking and generating new ideas. You will be excited about the opportunity that gives to apply your experience, knowledge, and transferrable skills.
