Join the Missio team
Regional Community Fundraiser
2 roles: one based in Northern England, one based in Southern England, locations to be determined
An exciting opportunity has arisen for two outstanding community fundraisers to work with diocesan volunteer teams to raise funds to enable Missio to achieve its mission. This is an opportunity which would suit someone wanting to use their proven fundraising skills to support the Church’s mission overseas by building effective relationships with Diocesan Directors, Parish Coordinators (Local Secretaries), Volunteers, Supporters, Schools, Religious and Parish Priests to help grow an understanding of the theology and impact of mission in the world.
Missio ignites God’s love by helping missionaries to work alongside communities throughout the world that are poor or in need, regardless of their background or belief. Today Missio makes an impact in 1,070 mission dioceses in 157 countries. We transform lives by listening to local needs and acting in the most effective way: we create infrastructure in impoverished and remote areas; we help to build chapels, schools and orphanages; we facilitate clinics and dispensaries; and we create hubs from which the young Church can flourish and grow. Missio also supports the training of over 25,000 future Priests and 11,000 religious Sisters every year by providing young churches in developing countries with funding to train their own future Church leaders. We are proud to be the Pope’s charity for world mission.
Principle responsibilities will include:
- To build effective relationships with Diocesan Directors, Parish Coordinators (Local Secretaries), Volunteers, Supporters, Schools, Religious and Parish Priests across allocated dioceses;
- To be responsible for coordinating the network of Missio and Mill Hill volunteers in allocated dioceses;
- To communicate effectively with Local Secretaries to ensure they feel connected to Missio’s work and valued for their contribution;
- To develop effective diocesan and parish-fundraising by supporting Local Secretaries, parish teams and schools
The roles form part of a small, supportive and committed team and location is flexible but will require regular attendance at our London office, which is a short walk from Victoria Station. One of the roles will be based in northern England and one in southern England. The role will require flexibility to travel extensively within England and Wales and could involve occasional overseas travel.
Closing date for applications: 10 January 2020
Interviews: There will be a two-stage process with first interviews held on 22nd January 2019. Second interviews will be arranged on a mutually convenient date.
