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.

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 joined us this October, and we are looking forward to continuing our organisation wide strategy and the fundraising and marketing strategy which will underpin and support the achievement of our ambitious goals.

As the Head of Mass Participation Fundraising, you will be responsible and accountable for the leadership and performance of the Individual Giving (inc. Legacies & Lottery) & Community Fundraising and will play a pivotal role leading the team to achieve their ambitious targets. You will be responsible for delivering a programme of diverse and risk assessed fundraising activity that maximises sustainable net voluntary income. The suitable individual will be comfortable leading from the front, being a visible face of the organisation as ambassador for the hospice, representing the organisation to both internal and external audiences.

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, bring fresh ideas and have the personal drive to execute them. We want someone to join us who loves being part of a hardworking and collaborative team.
