Working for Southampton Hospitals Charity

Ben - Supporter Services Officer

I look after our supporters by making sure that when they choose to support us, we are easy to work with.

Our donors and their data is at the heart of everything I do, and this helps me to support the fantastic work of my colleagues and Southampton Hospitals Charity make as big a difference as possible for the staff and patients of UHS.

Beth - Head of Fundraising / Interim Joint Director

I strive to make a difference to the staff and patients at UHS who do incredible things every day. We are so privileged to see first-hand the difference our donors make to the patients and their families.

I get to work with and meet some incredible people; from supporters donating their money, the nurses working tirelessly to make patients more comfortable, clinicians carrying out lifesaving operations and the staff here at the Charity who care so passionately about the work we do.

Cath - Communications Manager

I’m responsible for developing the communication strategies that focus on driving engagement and building brand awareness whilst emphasising our purpose and impact at UHS. The stories we hear from patients every day about the life changing treatment and care they’ve received is incredibly inspiring, and knowing that SHC can enhance this care means that we can make a lasting impact for generations to come.

Charlie - Trusts & Foundations Manager

I’m responsible for raising money from charitable trusts and foundations. I also help to manage our projects and appeals from across the hospital.

The best thing about working for SHC is meeting all the inspirational staff here at UHS. Knowing that I’m helping them and patients is the best bit of my job. No one likes coming to hospital but together we can make it that little bit better.

Donna - Marketing & Communications Officer

I look after our digital and social presence, with a focus on internal and external communications. I’ve worked for the Charity for over eight years, and have seen it continuously grow from strength to strength. The NHS is a cause I am passionate about, enough to trek the Sahara desert, Great Wall of China and Machu Picchu for!

Jeneen - Head of Major Gifts / Interim Joint Director

I work with our donors to develop programmes, projects and appeals which best meet their giving areas of interest, and evaluate the impact that is made as a result of their donation ensuring that together, a long-term legacy of their gift will be made.

Every day I am amazed by the incredible generosity of people who want to say thank you for the care and treatment they have received at the hospital or those who want to help make our patients experience as conformable as possible.

My role enables me to build relationships with staff, patients, their families and the community. And a big part of the journey is supporting them through the good times and the bad. The best thing about working at SHC is knowing that the support we provide to wards across the hospital, really does make a difference. I’m passionate about supporting our hospital and our supporters.

Rachel - Piam Brown Charity Coordinator

I’ve always wanted to make a difference and working for SHC certainly fulfils that drive.
I am the first point of contact for all charity matters relating to the ward, so I support fundraisers as well as spend donations, buying resources, funding facilities and organising events, all of which enhance the experience of our young patients and their families whilst under our care. It is a very rewarding job which I am proud to do.
