About the Role

“I had never thought of doing something like this before, but now I am, I realise that it’s the best job that I have ever had”

Looking for a fresh start and a new challenge in a new career?
Want to earn good money by doing good?
Can you gain people's trust quickly and build rapport?

We welcome applications from people with sales experience in other fields but who maybe want to do something socially valuable with their experience and we also want people with no sales experience and who previously have not even thought of working in a sales-type role – because it is not a traditional style sales job at all.

The role is fundraising as a 3rd party agent, employed by The Fundraising Partnership, representing, and fundraising for Derian House Children’s Hospice in Lancashire. Your role will be to find more local people to support us with a small regular donation so that we can make a big difference to local people. You do this by talking to people at their homes, being friendly, explaining what the Derian House does, and asking them to become a regular supporter of their local children’s hospice.

It is a salaried role enhanced by commission with full-time and part-time options, travel costs payment included. You will need to have a car but will typically be working within half-hour of your home. Full-time OTE is between £30-40k pa. Full training is given and delivered via a home study course and support and coaching in the field.

You need to be a driver and physically fit and active, but we can train you in all other parts of the job very easily. You will also be ethical and take pride in doing a job the right way. You could really help make a difference in your community.

Derian House Children’s Hospice helps seriously and terminally ill children live life to the full by creating wonderful experiences and bringing back a sense of normality to family life. By providing specialist nursing care and emotional support they help families smile again when life couldn’t get any tougher.

Derian House staff includes nurses, physiotherapists, play specialists, counsellors, and perinatal specialists. Not all families want to come to the hospice, so the team goes out to visit them in their homes and they have programmes to support siblings and grandparents, and the whole family. In 2019 the care was rated outstanding by the Care Quality Commission and the charity was also the JustGiving charity of the year.

Derian House relies on donations for 90% of its income. You can be a vital part of helping Derian House raise the money that it needs to be able to meet the needs of local families.

We are an ethical employer and are committed to setting new standards and changing the face of the charity fundraising industry. That is why we are proud to already be an ISO 9001 accredited company.
