Trusts Fundraiser
Julia's House, Dorset & Wiltshire Children's Hospices

Job Description

When you join Julia’s House, you are not just taking on a job. You become part of our family and part of a leading organisation in the charity sector, with the shared commitment, drive and ambition to make a real difference to the lives of seriously ill children and their families.

If you are a talented Trusts Fundraiser with the proven written, research and relationship skills to excel in our well-established Philanthropy team, we would love to hear from you.

Our supporters have a huge impact on the care we provide and the right candidate will be skilled at writing high-quality applications to grant-giving organisations, as well as boasting the ability to research and identify new funders and build rapport with decision makers. A strong understanding of charitable trusts and foundations is essential, as is experience of working in a similar charity fundraising role.

You will need to possess the skills to write compelling, tailored funding proposals and be able to demonstrate the ability to understand and interpret financial and statistical information. Strong time management skills are a must, as is a positive and friendly approach, pro-active work ethic and a collaborative nature.

We have ambitious plans to grow our income to ensure we are there for every local family in need of our care. If you are ready to help us meet the challenge, please get in touch with us.

The role is for 21 hours per week and based in our Poole Head Office. The successful candidate will be required to occasionally travel throughout Dorset and Wiltshire, therefore a full driving licence is a requirement for this role. 

All our staff members have access to a wide range of benefits and we are committed to supporting you, your wellbeing and development, to ensure you enjoy working with us.  We offer 30 days annual leave plus Bank Holidays – pro rata for part-time staff, an Employee Assistance Programme, generous pension scheme and a Death in Service scheme.

Closing date:  31.12.18.  Interview date: To be confirmed during January
