  • A highly developed ability to negotiate successfully with colleagues at all levels and with external stakeholders to achieve desired outcomes.
  • Experience of building and managing effective relationships with high level individuals and/or organisations and securing major gifts.
  • Ability to manage multiple projects, identifying conflicting demands and establishing clear priorities in order to meet agreed objectives and income.

All applicants are required to undergo a DBS check, paid for and arranged by the Hospice.  East Cheshire Hospice is committed to diversity across its workforce.
