More detail about the role

Royal Devon Hospitals Charity (RDHC) is on the lookout for a super-star administrator to look after our fundraising database to support the day-to-day running of the charity.

Based in the fundraising office at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital, you’ll be the first point of contact for our awesome fundraisers, helping to get them started on their fundraising journey and processing and acknowledging their donations.

This is a superb opportunity to play a key role within the charity by ensuring our financial, charitable and administrative records are accurately maintained.

Primary duties will entail precise and regular updates of supporter information onto our fundraising CRM database. You will possess excellent administration skills.

You will also help to co-ordinate the charity’s super team of volunteers, as well as providing additional administrative support to the fundraising team.

And while keeping the administrative side of the charity running like clockwork will be a top priority, the role may require occasional evening and weekend work to provide additional support at fundraising events.

As the official charity of the Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, the charity supports 2 Acute Hospitals, 17 Community Hospitals and a range of Community, Specialist and Primary Care Services.

We help fund new state-of the-art equipment; create world-class patient and staff environments; support additional staff development, training and wellbeing projects; and fund cutting-edge research.

We’ve got big ambitions to become a household name for anyone wanting to support the NHS in Northern, Eastern and Central Devon.

And with your enthusiasm, passion and amazing people skills, and by championing our cause, you can make a difference and help push the limits of what’s possible with NHS funding.

Occasionally you will also need to be flexible to support evening and weekend events.

If you want to be part of a charity that makes a positive difference to the care of patients then we would love to hear from you.

Working Pattern: 37.5 hours per week, Monday to Friday 9:00 - 17:00
