Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust

Working at ACT

Direct Marketing Lead

An exciting opportunity for a skillful direct marketer to join an ambitious, fast paced fundraising team to inspire support for Addenbrooke's Hospital.

Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust (ACT) is the independent charity that raises money and makes grants to improve the experience of patients and their families at Addenbrooke's and the Rosie Hospitals in Cambridge. We invest in projects that enable the hospital to treat more patients, transform NHS care, drive innovation through technology, research and the latest equipment to speed up treatment and recovery - or simply to give patients a bit of normality with less fear and anxiety while they're in hospital.

As the Direct Marketing Lead you will be responsible for delivering a programme of direct response and supporter retention marketing, designed to inspire grateful patients and their loved ones to support Addenbrooke's Hospital. With over 750,000 people passing through the hospital each year, but only around 1% currently becoming supporters, the opportunity is significant. You’ll play a key role in growing the number of grateful patients who become supporters and helping us to maximise their lifetime values and retention. You will work with colleagues in the Donor Care and Communications teams to help create a truly great supporter experience through carefully designed, segmented and tested direct marketing activities. You’ll work with the Head of Donor Care and the Data & Insight Lead to identify and analyse the information and trends needed to continually drive improvement and growth in our marketing activities, and you’ll also work closely with our Communications Team to ensure that our marketing communications compliment and strengthen our brand, and that where appropriate our communications have acquisition marketing and supporter retention in mind. You will be playing a key role in helping the charity to meet it’s growing ambitions and challenges and ensuring that it can continue to support a world class hospital delivering the very best patient care, research and treatment.

To apply please send a completed application form along with a covering letter to Julie Curtis, Box 126, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Hills Road, Cambridge, CB2 0QQ.

Volunteer Co-ordinator

Exciting opportunity for a fantastic relationship builder to create a volunteer programme that supports fundraising for this extraordinary hospital.

Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust (ACT) is the independent charity that raises money and makes grants to improve the experience of patients and their families at Addenbrooke's and the Rosie Hospitals in Cambridge. We invest in projects that enable the hospital to treat more patients, transform NHS care, drive innovation through technology, research and the latest equipment to speed up treatment and recovery - or simply to give patients some normality with less fear and anxiety during their stay.

We're looking for a highly motivated person with excellent communication skills who recognises the value of volunteering - both to the organisation and the individual - to build a team of committed and engaged volunteers to support ACT's fundraising. You'll bring your experience of establishing positive relationships, as well as knowledge of volunteering best practice, to create a programme that appeals to people who want to support the Hospital with their time, and in which they feel fulfilled and proud to a part of our team. We currently have around 100 volunteers in a variety of roles - and we strongly believe that this makes for the foundation of an exciting volunteering programme.

You'll work closely with colleagues to identify opportunities for volunteering across our events, within our offices, assisting our fundraisers out in the community, and to fill those opportunities either from within our pool of volunteers or as a way of attracting new volunteers who want to support Addenbrooke's. You will also be responsible for coordinating our exciting new Hubs within the Hospital - ensuring that they are adequately covered by excellent volunteers and that we're providing an excellent customer experience at these crucial front of house opportunities.
