Marketing & Database Manager (Maternity cover)

We are currently seeking an experienced and enthusiastic individual to cover the maternity leave of our Marketing & Database Manager- a key management role within our Income Generation & Communications department. We’re proud of the quality and reach of our marketing and communications activity and, despite being a small team, we make a big impact and have experience of creating innovative, award-winning campaigns. This is an exciting opportunity for a talented and creative individual to maintain this momentum and ultimately help our charity reach more people.

12 month fixed term contract from April 2021

Full Time 37.5 hours per week

Salary £31,365 per annum

The Role:

This is a busy role managing multiple areas of work:

  • Developing and delivering the hospice’s integrated communications strategy.
  • Providing marketing support for fundraising and hospice service promotion activities.
  • Managing the supporter database and administration support for the income generation team.

The majority of your time will be spent sourcing news and stories from the hospice and transforming them into engaging content, planning and managing print production, liaising with the media and developing digital communications. You will also oversee the management of our substantial supporter database, including leading on the further development of data insight and reporting which will be crucial to our future success.   

You’ll work closely with the members of the Income Generation & Communications department and the rest of the organisation to develop and deliver cross-channel marketing campaigns, helping to achieve our £4 million annual fundraising target, raising awareness of the care and support we provide to patients and driving engagement with key stakeholders.

What you need:

First and foremost you 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 a skilled marketing & communications professional with experience of database management. Experience of working for a charity would be an advantage, as would line management experience.

Why Bolton Hospice?

You will be working within a friendly and committed team in modern, open plan offices (with some home working considered). Working across the whole organisation and reporting directly to senior management, you’ll have ownership of the Marketing & Database functions and the autonomy to use your skills to make a real impact. We offer our employees an attractive benefits package, including generous annual leave (starting at 35 days a year including bank holidays), a contributory stakeholder pension scheme, life assurance, membership of a healthcare cash plan and excellent training opportunities.
