Head of Development
Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark
£60,000-£65,000 plus benefits 
Full-time, permanent (flexible working considered)
London, Lambeth North 

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark covers the geographical area of the whole of London south of the Thames, all of Kent and the eastern parts of Surrey.  With currently 169 schools, 175 Parishes, and 400 diocesan employees it is one of the largest dioceses in the UK.

Our fundraising is essential in helping to ensure that the Diocese is able to meet its’ charitable objectives and to enhances the lives of the people and parishes we serve.

As Head of Development you will lead the development fundraising to deliver a sustainable and growing mix of income streams. We see a significant part of our income being derived from major donors as well as partnerships with trusts and foundations so a relationship approach will be fundamental to success. Alongside these long-term individual and organisational partnerships there is opportunity to enhance the efficiency of the management of our regular programme of fundraising through our parishes such as improved use of technology, planned giving programmes and maximising Gift Aid.

We are seeking to appoint an experienced senior fundraiser with a track record in securing and maintaining major partnerships with individual donors and organisations. Experience of working within a faith-based context would be helpful, but it is not essential. What will be required in the role, however, is being able to bring an empathy with, and knowledge of, the beliefs, heritage and traditions of the Catholic Church in order to be able to operate in accordance with its structures and accountabilities as well as to be able to understand the motivations of donors and meet their expectations.

This is a senior role within the Archdiocese working collaboratively alongside other senior managers to meet the requirements of the Trustees. Part of this aspect of the role will be helping to develop the Diocese as a ‘fundraising aware’ organisation.

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (No. 1173050) and is run by a Board of Trustees, who are responsible for determining the strategic direction of the Archdiocese.  

Closing date: Monday 15th July
