The Leprosy Mission is the world’s largest leprosy-focused organisation, a pioneer in our field, with 140 years’ experience tackling this ancient disease. As a leading international Christian development organisation, The Leprosy Mission England and Wales (TLMEW) works in 10 countries across Africa and Asia to defeat leprosy and transform lives. We raise funds, promote research and innovation, and support our partners to strengthen health systems, provide life-changing health care services, skills training and opportunities for those who have been excluded and rejected by society.
TLMEW’s purpose is to increase awareness and understanding of leprosy and to achieve fundraising targets in excess of £9 million per annum in order to support our overseas projects.

TLMEW is an explicitly Christian charity and working across all faiths. The role of the Community Partnerships Manager is to represent the Mission’s purpose and ethos to external audiences. You will be a confident speaker with the ability to adapt your style to suit all church denominations. As the successful candidate will be required to undertake biblical research to locate appropriate scripture for use in TLMEW presentation and written materials and maybe asked to the lead the services in some supporting churches, there is an occupational requirement for the Community Partnerships Manager to be a committed Christian.
