Do you have a passion to see the churches in the UK led by men and women who have been well prepared for their crucial roles? LWPT is looking for someone with combination of fundraising experience and an eye for detail so needed in administrative work.

LWPT was set up in order to support Christian leaders as they head towards or are currently in positions in the local church that shape God’s people.  We develop preaching capabilities, offer supporting resources and give significant scholarship grants.

If you are successful, you will be responsible for developing the financial support and membership offering to those who support this ministry. You will be reporting to the Marketing and Membership Manager.

We offer a generous salary package as well as a pension, more than normal holidays and a suitable life assurance scheme. We also like to invest in the ongoing development of staff skills that are appropriate to the jobs they do. 

Throughout the pandemic, LWPT have worked successful from home thanks to an excellent online support system. As it appears as if we are heading towards a post-pandemic world we will be open to thinking creatively about what the work life will look like for all of our staff through a hybrid working option.

So we’re looking for someone with a commitment to see Christian leaders who are able to offer their local ministries the skills needed to strengthen the church. In particular, the development of income through fundraising as well as a mind committed to good supporting administration tasks.
