In 2018/19 St. Columba's Hospice had 426 admissions to our Inpatient Unit, 1037 attendances to out Day Therapies Service and 583 new patients admitted to our Community Palliative Care Service all of which is free at the point of need. We have an exceptional clinical environment and are committed to delivering the highest quality care to patients and support to their families. Our patients face a range of conditions, including cancer, respiratory disease, heart failure and MND. We currently have a full-time vacancy to join our dedicated fundraising team.

The Community Fundraiser role is a fantastic opportunity for a motivated individual to continue to develop the opportunities for community support for St Columba’s Hospice throughout Edinburgh and East Lothian. This is a new role and is an expansion of the community team in response to increased community activity. This role will support the delivery of income through community activities and initiatives, as well as supporting voluntary groups such as tin collectors, speakers and action groups. The post holder will engage and inspire those based in our local Edinburgh and East Lothian community to help our cause and will maintain and develop these relationships.

St Columba’s Hospice is an independent Scottish Charity - a diverse and committed workforce with 225 staff and over 630 volunteers. We provide specialist care and support to people from the age of 16 with terminal conditions across Edinburgh and the Lothians. Last year, we made a difference to the lives of over 1100 people.

The successful candidate will have experience of providing great customer service, be confident in relationship building, good at multi-tasking and able to prioritise a varied workload. If you want to join our team and help us make a difference to the local community we would love to hear from you.
