Community Partnerships Fundraiser

St. Margaret's Hospice

Community Partnerships Fundraiser – Taunton / Yeovil

Our patients, their families, our staff, volunteers and supporters are at the heart of our charity

For over 40 years St Margaret’s has been at the heart of the Somerset community, and consecutive generations have generously given their support, in a variety of wonderful ways to raise vital funds.

As a Community Partnerships Fundraiser, you will thrive on engaging with different stakeholders across the county, whether that’s local businesses, rotary groups, churches or individuals undertaking fundraising on our behalf.

You will work in partnership with our local community to deliver agreed net income, across a range of engaging events, initiatives and campaigns, always ensuring that you are working in a collaborative way with colleagues across the directorate to ensure opportunities are not missed and that income potential is maximised.

Developing and nurturing a strong network of volunteers will be key to your success, as you raise the profile of the hospice and motivate others to join our community of fundraisers.

As part of a wider team, you will play a pivotal role in delivering our three-year strategic framework, which has at its heart the need to embed first class supporter experience. You will ensure that our supporters receive tailored communications and are fully supported in their journey with the hospice.

No one day will be the same – but we can guarantee it will be varied, busy and hugely rewarding. This is a great opportunity to make your mark while capitalising on the return to public fundraising, where you can test new ideas and fundraising innovations.

Everyday St Margaret’s Hospice Care helps patients, families and carers across Somerset who are facing a life-limiting illness. This care and support is provided in the community, in patients own homes, as outpatients and day patients at our Taunton and Yeovil hospice hubs and in our In-patient Unit.

If you would like to make a real difference to patients and their families across Somerset, we look forward to hearing from you.
