She has been in the charity sector for 12 years operating as part of senior management teams as well as a Trustee. Her training with KPMG and subsequent roles on Global acquisitions and mergers provide a solid commercial background.

Director of Income Generation

Jayne Clarke

Jayne Clarke

Jayne joined us in June 2019 as our Director of Income Generation. She came from the RNLI where she was the Head of Marketing and Media and Director of their two commercial subsidiaries. Prior to that Jayne worked for Triodos Bank, having returned to Bristol after a long career in advertising and marketing in London. Jayne thrives on putting the donor at the heart of all activities in order to provide a two way relationship between the charity and the supporter – which inevitably will lead to the Hospice being able to look after more patients, families and carers.

When not working, Jayne is a keen sailor and is out on the water most weekends. When the weather doesn’t allow her to be on the water she loves cooking for friends and family.
