CHSW is looking for an experienced and dynamic trust fundraiser to lead our small and ambitious trusts team in developing and maximising income from charitable trusts and foundations.


The role will drive researching, relationship development and submission of high-quality grant applications. Part of the wider fundraising directorate, this role will work closely with the community, corporate and care teams to deliver effective cross-departmental campaigns.


You will have a successful background in securing bids from trusts and foundations. You will be a creative thinker, with excellent research skills and an eye for detail. The role demands exemplary written skills with the ability to develop strong cases for support within inspirational proposals.


Since 1991 CHSW’s story is one of phenomenal growth, such that we are now one of the largest, and certainly most geographically extensive, children’s hospice organisations in England. We have developed a highly successful record of fundraising and high-quality service delivery to children and families across the South West region, which stretches from South Gloucestershire and Wiltshire in the East to the Isles of Scilly in the far West.

Benefits of working for CHSW include:

  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Group life insurance scheme
  • Free car parking
  • Generous leave entitlement
  • Enhanced sick pay scheme
  • Family friendly policies
  • Commitment to training and development
  • Excellent working environment
  • Occupational health, wellbeing and counselling services
  • Green Agenda
  • 96% of staff agree that they enjoy the work they do for the Charity
  • A chance to make a real difference to make the most of short and precious lives.
