Join the team at Haven House Children’s Hospice

Haven House Children’s Hospice supports hundreds of families, looking after children and young people who have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. Our mission is to provide the highest quality palliative and holistic care services to children and their families in our local communities. Since the hospice began it has gone from strength to strength both in terms of the care we provide to children and families as well as the close bonds we have developed and nurtured with individuals and organisations in our community who are inspired by our work.

The past 18 months or so has been a very challenging time for all those working in the care sector. Haven House rose to the challenge, responded in an incredibly creative way and we were able to help more children and families than ever before.

Our Challenge & Community Events Manager is on maternity leave and we are looking for someone to replace her. This is a great time to join the team at Haven House as we are about to head into the exciting new phase of growth and development within the Income Generation and Marketing directorate and we are building our team to reflect this. Our new CEO will be joining us during November, and we are looking forward to further developing our organisation wide strategy and the fundraising and marketing strategy which will underpin and support the achievement of our ambitious goals.

We’re looking for an individual who is able to hit the ground running to proactively develop and drive our community events portfolio. The role will take the lead on our third-party challenges, individual challenges, staff-led events, supporter-led events and virtual and digital events.

At Haven House the focus within the Income Generation and Marketing Team is to put the supporter and donor at the centre of everything we do, ensuring they feel inspired by our work and the children and families we support; engaged and committed to our cause and ultimately make a commitment to do something amazing.

The person who gets this amazing job will need to have lots of energy and be full of ideas as although this role is a maternity cover role, we do not want someone to simply babysit and oversee what is already in place, we want someone who will bring fresh ideas into the mix and the personal drive to execute them. We want someone to join us who loves being part of a hardworking and collaborative team.
