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?
Have you worked in roles involving sales or customer care or using verbal communication and interpersonal skills?

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 The Kirkwood Hospice in Huddersfield. The Kirkwood movement supports life and legacy for anyone affected by any life-limiting illness, every step of the way. We help those in our care to live well and to make the most of every single day. We make the complex simple by focussing on what’s important. And we support families and loved ones to live on – and live well. We’re here for local people across our community whenever and wherever they need us, helping to improve their quality of life – in the ways that matter most to them. Through thick and thin, giant hugs and bottomless mugs, we support life for anyone affected by a life limiting illness in Kirklees.

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 The Kirkwood Hospice does and asking them to become a regular supporter of their local hospice. 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 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. 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.
