Community Fundraiser

We are looking for a creative, personable, income-driven Community Fundraiser with a sense of fun to join our dedicated Fundraising Team.

To succeed in this exciting role, you will need to:

  • Be a real people person and a great communicator… able to establish and develop strong relationships with a diverse range of people and organisations so that we are their charity of choice.
  • Have exceptional customer service, administration skills and attention to detail… Telling people that we appreciate their support is really important, so that our supporters always feel valued, cared for and know that their fundraising makes a real difference. Whether over the phone, in writing or in person, you’ll provide exceptional stewardship.
  • Be highly organised and a strong multi-tasker… No two days are ever the same in fundraising and you’ll need to prioritise a busy workload in a fast-paced environment as part of our small (but mighty) team!

You will engage with individuals and groups from all walks of life, such as schools and colleges, support groups and organisations, across our local community to provide a vital source of income to Peace Hospice Care, raise awareness and provide opportunities for us to connect with others about our cause through:

  • Administration, processes and donor stewardship
  • Supporter relationship development
  • Marketing and promotion
  • Event logistics
  • Volunteer supervision
  • Research

Peace Hospice Care (PHC) has been supporting people with life-limiting illnesses, and their families, from across the community for 25 years.  Awarded ‘Outstanding’ for being caring by the Care Quality Commission in 2016, and ‘Good’ overall, we are an award-winning charity dedicated to supporting and empowering patients and their families.

Based in Watford, within a 5-minute walking distance of Watford High Street and Intu Shopping Centre, we cover 36 GP practices which serve a population of 320,000.  We offer a professional and exciting working environment supported by an open culture of learning and development for all our staff and volunteers.

Our three core clinical services are: Inpatient Unit, Starlight Outpatient Services and our Community Services.  We also host the West Herts Palliative Referral Centre.

In 2017 our Inpatient Unit was refurbished.  We have 12 specialist palliative and end of life short stay beds which operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week with the support of a multi-disciplinary team.

Our vision is to be the leading provider for specialist palliative and end of life care across South West Hertfordshire and the wider area. To support this vision, we have recently developed a five-year clinical strategy with the aim of reaching more people, and bringing high quality care closer to home.

Peace Hospice Care is an organisation that strives continuously to demonstrate our Values of ‘Respect’, ‘Innovation’, ‘Responsive’, ‘Excellence’ and Integrity’.

These values are embedded in our recruitment and selection processes and we are fully committed to equality, diversity and inclusion in both our workforce and within our culture.  The aim is for our workforce to be truly representative of all sections of society, and for every employee and volunteer to feel respected and supported to perform at their best, and achieve their full potential.  We are proud to embrace flexible working.

There has never been a more exciting time to join Peace Hospice Care, as we strive to become the leading provider of specialist palliative care in our community
