Fundraiser - High Value Relationships
Lifewords is looking for a fundraiser who is passionate about the Bible as good news for everyone, everywhere, and keen to help us extend our ministry. You will be working at our London office – one of seven centres around the world – helping to develop new funding partnerships. We are a small organisation with a big reach, and a love for sharing the Bible with others through creative projects and programmes. If you are excited by global mission, we would love to hear from you. The successful candidate will already have experience of different areas of fundraising, ideally high value donor and/or trust fundraising, and will be able to demonstrate a successful track record in engaging donors. Most of all, you will be motivated by the work that Lifewords does, and excited about the challenge of winning more funding and support for this. The post-holder will work as part of a small team, focusing particularly on new income – through furthering partnerships with trusts and high value individuals. An outstanding candidate will relish the opportunity of engaging prospective supporters, and will be confident in writing bids and forging new relationships. This post provides an excellent learning opportunity for someone looking to extend their knowledge and practice in faith-based charity fundraising. You will be joining the organisation just as we have updated our visual identity and branding – providing plenty of opportunity to implement new ideas and exercise creativity in how we build dynamic and fruitful relationships with the next generation of supporters. This is a full-time role, and is based in our central London office (at Waterloo). Salary range £31,000 - £34,000pa plus pension, dependent on experience. Flexible or part-time working would be considered for the right candidate. When you email your CV, please include a maximum of 450 words explaining why you would like to take on this role. Finding the right person is important to us. We will be going through applications every fortnight, and inviting the most promising candidates to an interview in Waterloo.
