Closing Date: 19th November, 2018

Interview Date: 28th November, 2018

Salary: Up to £23,000 (Pro Rata)

30 Hours Per Week (over 4 days)

12 Month Fixed Term Contract

At Rowcroft, we believe in making every day the best day possible for our patients and their loved ones.  Now more than ever, our retail operation plays a vital role in generating income to make that vision a reality.

Job Outline

We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic individual to be our Project Lead, as we embark upon an exciting new phase of development in line with our Retail Strategy. This is a 12 month post initially, starting ASAP, with potential for a contract to be offered beyond the fixed term period.  As the Project Lead, you will co-ordinate the day to day running of specific projects, as determined and assigned by the Head of Retail. The first of which is to set-up and establish a mobile catering business, with our very own Rowcroft ‘H’ Van.  This innovative project will generate a vital new income stream for the hospice, as well as raise awareness.

Person Required

Ideally you will have experience of delivering projects from start to finish, providing regular reports on project progress, and working within the agreed costs and timescales. As well as being able to use your initiative to work proactively and autonomously, you must also be a natural and creative problem solver.

It goes without saying that you will have exceptional IT and organisational skills, as well being able to plan and manage your time efficiently to keep the project on track.  With excellent communication skills, you will have the ability to confidently engage and communicate effectively with external stakeholders.  You will be committed and flexible, and embrace and role model Rowcroft’s core values which are essential to the way we work day to day.

What’s in it for you… This is an exciting time to join the team as we embark upon our new Retail Strategy.  If you would like to be part of a fantastic team, in a truly rewarding organisation, that makes a real difference to patients and families living in South Devon, then we would love to hear from you!
