Established in 1991, Arohanui Hospice in Palmerston North provides specialist palliative care for patients living with life limiting illnesses and support for their families and whanau; within the Manawatu, Tararua, Horowhenua and Rangitikei/Taihape regions.

Our name ‘Arohanui’ means ‘with much love’ and we strive to demonstrate that every day, in every way, with our heartfelt and excellent care.  Our care is provided free of charge but costs a considerable amount to provide. Just over half of our funding comes from the District Health Board, the rest – over 3 million – needs to be fundraised and comes from the generous support of local businesses and individuals who understand the value of our service in the community.

Arohanui Hospice is seeking a passionate, skilled and well connected Business Development Manager to further develop, diversify and manage our Farming for Hospice fundraising programmes. With farming and agriculture being a key industry of our local economy we see this position as vital to the future of our fundraising initiatives. You will be an important member of the Arohanui Hospice Foundation team reporting to the Director of the Foundation team.

You will:

  • Have experience in building and sustaining strategic relationships within the agricultural sector
  • Have a sound understanding of the complexities of fundraising in the Not for Profit sector
  • Be a proficient user of Microsoft Office Products
  • Have excellent communication and time management skills

You will be responsible for:

  • Overseeing our existing Farming for Hospice initiative
  • Maintaining and developing existing relationships
  • Identifying and developing viable partnerships that support the Farming for Hospice fundraising initiative
  • Maintaining the Farming for Hospice database
  • Collaborative planning with the Farming for Hospice Convener
  • Initiating regular engagement with our extended Farming for Hospice team
  • Accurate and timely reporting to the Board of Trustees

This is an exciting and diverse role for someone who is business savvy, well connected and passionate about making a difference so if you have a business background in the agricultural sector and you are keen to use your talents for good then please apply today.
