The ideal candidate must be self-motivated, creative and enthusiastic, with a minimum of 5 years of experience in a fundraising role with line management experience.  The Income Generation Manager must have experience using Harlequin / other CRM software, advanced level general IT skills, strong communication skills (both written and verbal), attention to detail, organisational and planning skills (including events), as well as maintaining total honesty and integrity. You’ll need demonstrable experience of delivering successful and sustainable fundraising and first-class donor care. You’ll need to be an excellent communicator and relationship-builder, highly organised and passionate about the work of HospiceCare and the difference you can make. We are looking for someone with a strong teamwork ethic and experience of working with volunteers to maximise results. The Income Generation Manager is a key role within the Hospice, reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer, and is a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
