Open Doors is a Christian charity, part of Open Doors International, a global NGO network which works in over 60 countries to support and strengthen persecuted Christians. Last year the UK base raised approximately £15 million to provide practical support to persecuted Christians such as food, medicines, trauma care, legal assistance, safe houses and schools, as well as spiritual support through Christian literature, training and resources.
We have an exciting opportunity for a well organised Partnerships Coordinator, with exceptional data management skills, to play a key role within the Partnerships team in building relationships with major donors. You will be responsible for receiving gifts and acknowledging these appropriately and managing relationships on the database. You’ll also research field information to create impact reports.
Brilliant Excel and database knowledge, and incredible verbal and written communication skills are essential for this role and you’ll be able to build strong relationships within the team as well. The team will need your data and information to make their decisions so it must be accurate and well presented.
As a committed Christian*, you will have a good understanding of the Christian community and its various denominational expressions throughout the UK & Ireland. You will be committed to high standards and show exceptional attention to detail. You will discover that we work here because we are passionate about the mission of Open Doors. This role will provide you with the opportunity to use your God-given character and talents to contribute to the work of Open Doors, and to be part of a team that seeks to grow the charity, to support and encourage one another, and uphold the Christian values that we base our identity on.
If you are a Christian* looking to make an impact and seeking a new challenge in 2021, we'd love to hear from you.
