Lancashire and South Cumbria NHS Foundation Trust (LSCft) is looking for a fundraising manager. If you love involving your colleagues and local communities in feel-good fundraising and enjoy seeing your endeavours translate into transformations in patient care and colleague wellbeing, then this is the job for you!

LSCft Charitable Fund is the charity linked to the Trust which covers donations for patients, service users, carers and colleague's wellbeing.

Main duties of the job

This is a new post as we now need to relaunch and promote our Charity far and wide, to reduce the stigma of mental health, promote our physical and community health services and bring LSCft and its vision to be the best to the forefront of mind in the area.

The post is an important link between the Trust and the local community, facilitating fundraising across corporate and public initiatives, stakeholder and corporate giving and launch our corporate and sponsorship opportunities to local businesses as part of our fundraising plan.

About us

Due to our expansive geography, many of our colleagues who work here are also residents, families of service users and patients, carers for their loved ones and may be service users themselves. Their wellbeing is essential. Raising funds for the Charity will include looking after and enhancing their wellbeing.

You will require experience of fundraising, bid writing and charity law and display considerable energy and enthusiasm to inspire colleagues, patients, service users, families, visitors and the local community to choose LSCft as their preferred charity in Lancashire and South Cumbria.

You will also work with local businesses, colleagues and volunteer networks to develop fundraising initiatives, activities and events. You will ensure that fundraising ideas and high profile events are in place to generate funds to desired targets in the first year of launch.

The ideal candidate will have an outgoing personality, extensive fundraising experience and proven ability to create plans, strategies and income across different platforms. You will be a keen people person, be good at motivating, influencing and encouraging charity activities and be confident in your approach and able to work with minimal supervision, taking ownership in this role as our expert in the field of fundraising.
