Income Generation Manager

16th January 2020

We are currently looking to recruit a talented Income Generation Manager with a proven track record of success to play a key role in future income growth at HospiceCare North Northumberland, based in our Alnwick headquarters. The Income Generation & Communications team need to raise around £800k a year to fund specialist care and support for local people facing terminal or life-limiting illnesses, and their families. As our services and reach increase, so does our income target, so the successful candidate will build on our previous fundraising success and ultimately help us reach more of the people who need us.

The Role:

As the Income Generation Manager, you will lead on generating income for HospiceCare through business partnerships, community fundraising, individual giving, Gift Aid, legacy giving, trusts and foundations as well as our three charity shops in Berwick, Wooler and Amble. Supported by a small team, you’ll develop and deliver comprehensive plans to continually grow income in these areas, and manage a diverse fundraising portfolio, bringing together the best and most effective ways to increase income as well as developing an income generation strategy. You’ll work closely with colleagues across the team and wider hospice team to identify opportunities to further engage supporters in our work and show them the difference their support makes. This is an exciting opportunity for a skilled and experienced fundraiser to combine hands-on fundraising and supporter development with developing and influencing strategy and growth.

What you need:

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. 

Why HospiceCare?

As well as having the opportunity to live and work in the stunning location that is rural North Northumberland, we offer our employees an attractive benefits package, including 35 days’ annual leave including bank holidays, contributory pension scheme, free parking, and excellent training opportunities.
