Head of Fundraising

This is an outstanding opportunity for a talented, ambitious, major gifts fundraiser to lead and deliver a major campaign.  

The Bishops' Conference of England and Wales is the permanent assembly of Catholic bishops in these two countries, and operates through the Catholic Trust for England and Wales.  The Conference exists to direct and support the work of local churches as well as initiating projects that affect positive change on the world. 

In 2006 the Bishops’ launched a £12million campaign, Faith in the Future, to support a range of initiatives such as; strengthening family life, providing pastoral care for victims of abuse, Catholic Parliamentary internship programmes.  Currently, almost £8million has been raised in gifts and pledges towards the campaign.  The Conference is now looking for a highly motivated individual to lead, develop and deliver the Campaign, by proactively securing and managing a portfolio of prospects and securing major gifts.

You are a target-driven and proactive fundraiser who is confident in developing and maintaining relationships at a senior level.  Your proven track record, ideally in major gifts fundraising, and your exceptional strategic and interpersonal skills will be integral to your success in the role.   You are motivated by a genuine desire to help others, have a high degree of personal integrity and are able to demonstrate a strong empathy and respect for the Church.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone looking to take their next step in major gifts fundraising.  Individuals that have previously worked in comparable roles for the Conference have gone on to have very successful fundraising careers in high calibre institutions.

Closing date for applications: Monday 19th November 2012.

Interviews will be held on Thursday 6th December 2012.
