News: New director at Rotherham Hospice


Rotherham Hospice has appointed Perter Bradley as director of marketing and fundraising, a job which comes with the task of doubling the charity's fundraising income over the next three years.

The only adult hospice in Rotherham for the people of Rotherham, Rotherham Hospice is an independent charity and must raise significant sums of money each year in order to pay for the quality care provided free of charge to patients, their families and carers.

The hospice was looking to strengthen its leadership team and approached Sheffield-based Nicholas Associates, as one of the region's leading recruiters with a dedicated CSR offering, to find the right solution for this newly created position. The pro-bono collaboration resulted in the appointment of Peter Bradley, who brings more than a decade of experience and innovative fundraising success to Rotherham Hospice.

Peter Bradley, director of marketing and fundraising at Rotherham Hospice (pictured, centre), said: "I'm delighted to be joining the passionate team at Rotherham Hospice. There are 162,000 registered charities in the UK. Each and every one of them is a good cause, so it's very competitive out there. I'm looking forward to using my experience to support future plans to grow and extend the services that the Hospice provides."

Attracting the right talent to help the Hospice achieve its fundraising goals is key. The Hospice is now looking to recruit a community fundraiser to help raise its profile in the local community, as well as a corporate fundraiser to build its profile with local businesses and extend its corporate network.

Chris Duff, CEO at Rotherham Hospice (pictured, left), said: "Nicholas Associates opened up different avenues for Rotherham Hospice and the team worked extremely hard to reach out to suitable people. Nicholas Associates has brought strong professional involvement and we have also benefited because the recruitment activity has helped put the Hospice on people’s radars."

Paul Brammer, director of Nicholas Associates (pictured, right), added: "There is a growing realisation that businesses are not divorced from the communities they operate in. As a "people" business Nicholas Associates supports the local communities in which it operates and we're delighted to have been able to help Rotherham Hospice in developing its leadership capabilities to support its future fundraising success."

Nicholas Associates is part of the the successful Rotherham business, Stafforce Recruitment, the industrial and commercial recruiter that is heading towards a £200m turnover within the next five years.
