12 month Fixed Term contract (Maternity Cover)
We are currently looking to recruit a talented Fundraising Manager with a proven track record of success to play a key role in future income growth at Bolton Hospice, covering a period of maternity leave within the team. The Income Generation & Communications team need to raise £4 million a year to fund specialist care and support for local people facing terminal or life-limiting illnesses, and their families. As our services and reach increase, so does our income target, so the successful candidate will build on our previous fundraising success and ultimately help us reach more of the people who need us.
Salary £30,401 - £32,525 p.a.
Full Time 37.5hrs per week
As Fundraising Manager, you will lead on generating income for Bolton Hospice through corporate fundraising, community fundraising, individual giving, legacy giving and trusts & foundations. Supported by a small team, you’ll develop and deliver comprehensive plans to continually grow income in these areas, in line with the hospice’s overall income generation strategy.
You’ll work closely with colleagues across the team and wider hospice team to identify opportunities to further engage supporters in our work and show them the difference their support makes. This is an exciting opportunity for a skilled and experienced fundraiser to combine hands-on fundraising and supporter development with developing and influencing strategy and growth.
What you need:
You’ll need demonstrable experience of delivering successful and sustainable fundraising and first-class donor care. You’ll need to be an excellent communicator and relationship-builder, highly organised and passionate about the work of Bolton Hospice and the difference you can make. We are looking for someone with a strong teamwork ethic and experience of working with volunteers to maximise results. Some knowledge of our catchment area (the Metropolitan Borough of Bolton) would be an advantage.
