‘Amazing people doing amazing things for their hospice’

Rowcroft Hospice is dedicated to providing high quality care to people living with progressive, life-limiting illnesses in South Devon, as well as supporting their families and carers. Rowcroft is heavily dependent on the support of the local community which provides the majority of the funds needed to take care further.

This is an excellent opportunity for someone with experience of establishing and managing volunteer schemes to join Rowcroft Hospice’s Community Fundraising team at an exciting stage in the team’s development. This role will be integral to increasing income for the hospice in the following ways:

  1. by establishing a volunteer ambassador scheme consisting of trained volunteers able to represent the hospice and speak knowledgeably to a variety of audiences and play an active role in recruiting new regular givers and lottery players
  2. by developing volunteer supporter groups to undertake fundraising on Rowcroft’s behalf
  3. by providing support to Rowcroft’s existing fundraising supporter groups; the Friends of Rowcroft
  4. by recruiting a network of fundraising volunteers able to support the hospice on an ad-hoc basis at local community events 

Key to the success of the role will be motivating and enthusing new volunteers, and ensuring they are well-informed and appreciated. A key task will be to increase the number of supporter groups in the Rowcroft area who will be specifically asked to raise money to support Rowcroft’s work. 

Ideally you will have experience of managing volunteers, delivering training or education programmes, you will be diplomatic with excellent communication skills and the ability to talk to people from all levels of society.
