Community Fundraiser

Do you have exceptional people, planning and communication skills?

Are you energetic, adaptable, approachable and a true team player?

Are you passionate about a career in fundraising for your local charity?

We are looking for a Community Fundraiser to join our team.

Across our local community, schools and colleges, support groups, organisations and people from all walks of life provide a vital source of income to Peace Hospice Care.  They also raise awareness and provide opportunities for us to engage with others about our cause.

We are looking for a creative, personable, income-driven Community Fundraiser to join our dedicated Fundraising Team.  To succeed in the 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 the charity they choose to fundraise for.
  • Have exceptional customer service, administration skills and attention to detail… How we thank people is incredibly important, so 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!
  • To create, sustain and develop relationships with existing and new supporters from different community areas.
  • To attend face to face meetings and deliver presentations to organisations in the community, including schools and faith groups. 
  • To support the Community Fundraising Manager to maximise the Hospice’s income from community activities and events, in order to meet or exceed the annual net income target.

In this full time role, working 37.5 hours per week, the successful candidate must be able to attend fundraising activities and events, frequently held in the evenings and weekends.

We will review applications as they are received and reserve the right to close the advert at any time so interested applicants are encouraged to apply early.

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.

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.
