At the London Diocesan Fund (LDF) we seek to do everything we can to support the mission and growth of the Church of England in London.
As the Fundraising Manager, covering maternity leave from approximately Monday 9th December 2019 for up to 12 months, you will have a crucial role at a pivotal moment within the organisation.
In 2020 the LDF will be preparing for the launch of its new vision, Capital Vision 2030. As part of these preparations, you will be focused on supporting the Diocese in its development of key relationships with existing and potential funders.
Alongside this you will also steward funders of live projects to a high standard and manage a portfolio of historic funders, proactively pursuing and developing relationships as appropriate.
As the Fundraising Manager in 2020 you will be responsible for delivering the Fundraising Team’s plan for stewardship and cultivation. At the heart of this strategy is the delivery of three high-level and intimate dinners hosted by the Bishop of London at The Old Deanery.
As the third most senior member of the clergy within the Church of England, the Bishop of London leads the Diocese of London. The role of Fundraising Manager provides an exciting opportunity to work alongside the Bishop and her team to deliver these events and support her in the development of her relationships with existing and potential supporters.
We are seeking a self-motivated, creative Fundraising Manager to deliver this stewardship and cultivation programme to the highest standard. The position is part time and might appeal to someone wishing to either develop a portfolio career or to combine this role with other commitments.
The role would suit an experienced manager who is at ease working independently and strategically, with the ability to both authoritatively advise senior colleagues regarding high-level donor relationships and to work effectively on operational and administrative tasks.
Alternatively, the role could also appeal to someone with relevant experience who is looking to take on more responsibility. This position would provide an excellent development opportunity for an individual looking for the next step in their career.
The Church of England in London is growing, vibrant and at the heart of communities throughout the capital. At the London Diocesan Fund we seek to do everything we can to support this mission and growth, using our resources to help our parishes and chaplains to serve over 4 million people.
We understand the benefits of employing individuals from a range of backgrounds, with diverse cultures and talents. We aim to create a workforce that:
