The Ayrshire Hospice is an experienced source of outstanding quality care and services which helps those with any life-limiting illness. Care is provided where there is no cure for the condition, but which improves the quality of each day for people who have a limited time to live. The hospice helps adults throughout Ayrshire and Arran with life-limiting illness such as cancer, neurological conditions, end stage heart failure and lung disease. The hospice is not just a building - it is a way of caring for people and help people to live as actively as they can to the end of their lives - however long that may be, where ever that may be.

The role

We are looking to expand our team of self-employed canvassers to promote our lottery throughout Ayrshire and Arran with the aim of signing up new lottery members on a door-to-door or venue basis.  Our canvassers receive commission based on the valuable work that they do. 

Commission rates

Our canvasser commission rates to sign up the first 10 members within a seven-day period are as follows:

  • Paying by Direct Debit - £15.00

If you sign up 11+ players within seven days the following commission rates will be paid for 11+ players signed up:

  • Paying by Direct Debit - £20.00


If you sign up 41+ players within seven days the following commission rates will be paid for 41+ players signed up:

  • Paying by Direct Debit - £25.00


The Ayrshire Hospice operates a retention and claw back scheme and details of this are available on request.  Successful canvassers will be asked to review terms and conditions and sign a Canvasser Code of Conduct & Canvasser Agreement. 

Personal qualities

Knowledge of the local area is essential as well as a good understanding of hospice services, understanding of the hospice lottery and the ability to effectively communicate this information to the general public.  Excellent verbal communication skills with a high standard of presentation skills and previous experience dealing with face to face contact with customers is essential.  Practical knowledge, skills and experience will normally be obtained through previous experience in a sales environment.  You will be ambitious to achieve and will not be discouraged by the challenges of face to face selling. Training will be given to ensure you are able to achieve the hospice standards when canvassing in the Ayrshire and Arran community.  Own transport to reach canvassing venues is essential so candidates must have full UK driving License and access to their own vehicle.
