St. Margarets Hospice

Legacy Officer

Location: Yeovil/Taunton based with flexibility to work from home available

Hours: Part time – 22.5 hours per week

Contract Type: Permanent

Salary: £13,128.17 to £14,095.46 pro rata

Annual Leave Entitlement: Initial 33 days unnual leave (including Bank Holidays) rising to 35 days pro rata after 1 year and increasing dependent on length of service.

St Margaret’s philosophy is to keep the patient at the heart of everything we do and we expect staff to uphold our values at all times and fulfill our commitment to providing excellent specialist palliative care for patients and support to their families.  We go to great lengths to recruit the right people. We want people with a positive attitude who are willing to go the extra mile, not because they are asked to but because they are passionate about working for St Margaret’s.

About the role

Gifts in Wills pay for the care of 1 in 3 patients at St Margaret’s each year – it is one of our most significant sources of income, and we are looking for a Legacy Officer who will be responsible for the day-to-day administration of our growing legacy programme.

To be successful, you will have great communication skills as well as proven all-round administrative abilities. These will include excellent data entry skills, experience of using databases, and a good level of computer literacy. Previous experience of probate law or legacy administration would be an advantage but is not essential.

You’ll be proactive in dealing with tasks and challenges, while being comfortable with managing your own workload effectively. As an ambassador of St Margaret’s, you will take pride in providing an exceptional experience for solicitors, bereaved relatives and executors while maximising legacy income for the hospice.

The role sits within our busy fundraising department, and we are looking for someone who can thrive operating in a busy office environment, with the opportunity to work from home some of the time. No two days will be the same, and we guarantee that you will get huge satisfaction from supporting the St. Margaret’s team to help make each day count for patients and their families in Somerset.
