Come and join the Haven House team during its exciting 15th Birthday year as our Major Donor Executive.  This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious fundraiser to join our successful Major Gifts team to engage and steward our Major Donors to ensure they continue making a difference to our children and families through donations, event support and influencing others.

Haven House was extremely proud to have been voted 27th in the Sunday Times Best Not for Profit Organisations 2018. We believe this is testament to our committed team which in turn enables us to support and make a real difference to the families and children during the most difficult of times.

In your role as a Major Donor Executive, you will ensure current supporters feel valued as well as working with the Head of Corporate and Major Gifts to grow our Friends Philanthropy Circle - our annual givers.  Working closely with the wider major gifts team you will manage and build the major donor pipeline and produce excellent research on new supporters.

You will have demonstrable experience in donor stewardship, networking and building solid relationships. You won't be afraid to 'make the ask' and you will be well supported by the Haven House Senior Management team and Trustees - we have strong cases for support and the opportunity for our donors to visit our hospice.  

As an experienced fundraiser you will have the opportunity to work with a passionate team in a beautiful location. As part of the Major Gifts team you will also be involved in our high value events including our annual ball, women in business lunch and business breakfast.
