TPP are excited to be partnering with St Margaret's Hospice Care on an exclusive Grants & Major Gifts Manager role. St Margaret's Hospice Care has been at the heart of Somerset's community for 40 years. Their dedicated teams provide high quality, compassionate care and support to help patients, their families and carers facing a life-limiting illness. Last year they supported more than 4,900 people.

Their success depends upon recruiting and developing the very best people, who can innovate as well as bring experience and fresh new ideas to the hospice, so that they can provide the best care possible for patients and their families.

About the role

  • Location: Taunton - although flexible working considered including remote working
  • Hours: 37 hours a week - 1FTE, permanent contract
  • Salary: £28,000 - £30,000

This is an exciting opportunity to join a successful fundraising team and play a lead role in maximising income from trusts and high value donors, as well as managing the hospice's legacy programme.

With a healthy legacy pipeline in place and strong relationships established with a range of funders and donors this is a great opportunity for an experienced fundraising professional to make their mark. You will add value to existing relationships through first class stewardship and bring new ideas and approaches to support the growth of funding partnerships for the benefit of the hospice. With a track record in securing significant grants and high value gifts, you will understand how to develop engaging cases for support, as well as innovative propositions to help grow sustainable income.

As part of a wider fundraising team, responsible for raising £5M+ each year, you will play a pivotal role in delivering our three-year strategic framework, which has at its heart the need to embed first class supporter experience. You will ensure that funders and high value supporters receive tailored communications and are fully supported in their journey with the hospice, so that life-time value is maximised. You will be the hospice's expert on grant funding and will work alongside the senior management team to ensure that the legacy pipeline and associated targets are met.

Your writing skills will be second to none, and you will be articulate and confident communicating with different stakeholders, from major donors, trustees and grant managers to solicitors and recently bereaved families. You will also recognise and have experience of developing excellent internal relationships with colleagues to develop compelling funding propositions and reports. Reporting to the Head of Fundraising Engagement, you will manage a small team, developing them as experts to work with you to meet annual net targets and key performance indicators.

Everyday St Margaret's Hospice Care helps patients, families and carers across Somerset who are facing a life-limiting illness. This care and support is provided in the community, in patients own homes, as outpatients and day patients at our Taunton and Yeovil hospice hubs and in their In-patient Unit. If you would like to make a real difference to patients and their families across Somerset we look forward to hearing from you.


St Margaret's Hospice Care offer flexibile working including some remote working, 28 days annual leave, free car parking, NHS discount and Employee Assistance Programme
