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 are recruiting for jobs where genuinely the most successful people are in the mid-50s and 60s. It really suits, for example, older women with some caring responsibilities of one sort or another, and older men are also highly successful at this. People of all ages trust older people more and in this role that is a crucial attribute.
We actively want people over 55 years old who are friendly, can relate to people, and have life experience. You need to be reasonably mobile 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.
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 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.
The role is fundraising as a 3rd party agent, employed by The Fundraising Partnership, representing Sue Ryder, and fundraising for Sue Ryder St. John’s hospice in Moggerhanger Bedfordshire. Sue Ryder is one of the UK’s leading providers of palliative end-of-life care and care for neurological needs and one of the UK's most trusted and loved charities. As well as expert palliative care, Sue Ryder St. Johns Hospice supports people with life-limiting conditions, and their families.
Funds raised support the work of Sue Ryder St.John’s Hospice providing care to people across the surrounding area. We can only provide free care to local families because local people support us. In the last year when the 400 shops have been largely closed and all events cancelled these regular supporters have been a lifeline providing more than £2million of income.
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 or in shops, being friendly, explaining what Sue Ryder and St John’s Hospice does and asking them to become a regular supporter of their local hospice.
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. 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.
If you feel others are overlooking what you have to offer, why not talk to a company that will instead actively appreciate, support, and welcome you?
Sounds interesting, but of course, you need to know more...
