The Evangelical Alliance is the largest body serving evangelical Christians in the UK. Since 1846, we’ve been uniting Christians and making their voices heard in the corridors of power. We’ve been equipping churches for mission, inspiring them to drive the spiritual, social and physical transformation of their communities.
We are looking for a passionate, committed evangelical Christian who shares our vision to develop relationships and draw supporters more fully into the life of the Evangelical Alliance, working closely with the CEO who, himself is a great fundraiser!
The role oversees the creation and delivery of a fundraising strategy, which includes appeals, trusts, legacies, key partner programme, and major donor events – generating a non-membership income of c£800,000 pa. The role includes communicating relationally with major donors and implementing the giving team’s strategy for supporter relations.
You’ll have experience of high-value charitable fundraising (trusts and individuals) and managing and administrating campaigns – or other relevant experience.
You’ll be an excellent communicator, relating well to people from a wide variety of backgrounds and cultures and you’ll be at ease communicating evangelical values and principles in a philanthropic context.
You’ll be organised, self-motivated and able to write clearly and concisely.
Most importantly, you’ll be actively engaged in an evangelical church and be comfortable sharing about Jesus and your relationship with him, applying your faith to your areas of expertise.
