Senior Fundraiser (Major Donors and Legacy)

Closing date: 21 June 2024

Do you want to make a different to life limited and life threatened children, young people and their families? To know that every day you are making a difference to the community we serve.

It takes over £8m a year to run our vital services, and to make it happen we need innovative, imaginative, focused, ambitious fundraisers to generate those much-needed funds. Does this sound like you?


You are a people person who is a creative and innovative storyteller, who can create compelling and persuasive written applications creating a vision of palliative care for children and young adults now and in the future.  You will be able to convert facts and figures into clear cases for support as well as managing personalised relationships with funders to ensure long term support.  You will be working to testing targets but will thrive on the challenge of that.

What’s really important here is that you’re able to manage your income stream and workload to maximize your efficiency, constantly looking to make the best use of your time. An inspiring and persuasive presenter with excellent writing skills, you should also bring the passion and vision to drive the growth of this forward-thinking charity.  

Here at Naomi House and Jacksplace, we believe in that by working together in an atmosphere of openness, honesty and trust, we can achieve our shared goals. As a team, we strive to be the best – and make the most of every opportunity we can to support those we care for. If you think the same way, we’d love to hear from you.
