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 going door-to-door talking to people at their homes, being friendly, explaining what Sue Ryder and Duchess of Kent hospice does, and asking them to become a regular supporter of their local hospice.
We welcome applications from people with sales experience in other fields but who maybe want to do something socially valuable with their experience. 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.

You will need to have a car but will typically be working within a half-hour of your home. Full-time OTE is between £30-40k pa. Full training is given and delivered via a short home study course and support and coaching in the field. 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.
