St Benedict's Hospice has been at the heart of the local community in and around Sunderland for over 35 years. Never standing still and always striving for the very best in care and a diverse range of services for patients and families, St Benedict's Hospice Charity is small but mighty, with big ambitions. As part of the charity's future vision, we are looking for a motivational Director of Income Generation and Operations to galvanise the team through a transformational fundraising and commercial strategy.

With responsibility for fundraising income as well as a profitable retail arm and transport services, you'll report directly to the Board of Trustees and work with them to create a dynamic new income generation strategy. Visionary in thinking and practical in approach, you'll be able to effectively translate strategy into deliverables and have the gravitas to drive bold ideas forward, engaging people both internally and externally and taking them on the journey with you.

There are exciting development plans on the horizon which include a potential capital project. You'll explore and implement the viability and sustainability of new income channels, finding ways to diversify and innovate.

We're looking for a proven fundraising leader with experience managing multiple income streams and a track record of developing and empowering a high-performing team. Drive, resilience and confidence are incredibly important. You'll be an empathetic and enabling manager who brings the best out in people and allows them to shine, both individually and as a collaborative team. Financial planning such as setting budgets, targets and monitoring performance against them will be second nature to you.

Flexible, life and family-friendly employer committed to personal and professional development.
