    FAQs

    • Can you give me a summary of the role?
    • Our Ambassadors work as a network of volunteers based in Worcestershire and engage with their contacts about the services that St Richard’s Hospice provides its community.

      The Ambassadors assist the fundraising team at St Richard’s in meeting its strategic objective of increasing the awareness and understanding of the services that are provided and helping with the fundraising efforts.

    • Why do you need my help?
    • St Richard’s Hospice needs continuous support to help raise its profile and to raise vital funds towards hospice care. Corporate Ambassadors play a vital role in connecting people to the cause and representing the charity in a variety of different ways.

      We are looking for Corporate Ambassadors to join our team. We are seeking people who are friends and supporters of St Richard’s Hospice and who can be the face of the charity amongst their business and community peers.

    • What support will I receive?
      • All successful Ambassadors will be required to attend an initial induction to ensure that they are fully aware of the St Richard’s Hospice history, ethos and services.
      • There will be networking opportunities with other SRH ambassadors to share experiences and ideas and to think of ways to work together to promote and support the charity.
      • You will be allocated a member of staff who will support you every step of the way and answer any queries that you may have.
      • You will be updated on a monthly basis with hospice news and events, ensuring that you are kept up to speed at all times and able to give the right answers when communicating with your contacts and members of the public.
      • You will be provided with any additional training and support required for you to complete your role.
    • How much time will I have to give?
    • We would anticipate a commitment of around 1 to 2 hours per month from our Ambassadors, however this can be worked to fit around your other commitments. Additionally, there will be planned networking meetings which will run for a maximum of 2 hours on a quarterly basis and it’s also suggested that you attend the hospice’s AGM. Over a year this equates to around 22 or 34 hours. We ask you to commit to a tenure of 2 years with a review after 12 months.

      You can of course give as much time as you want!

      When you are working on your own initiatives, we simply ask that you keep us informed of your activities so that we can ensure a team approach amongst Ambassadors and assist you if necessary.
