Partnerships Relationship Co-ordinator

Full-time (or part-time by negotiation) £23,000 - £27,000 pa

Do you excel at investing in relationships with individuals and developing new relationships? Would you find satisfaction supporting Christians facing persecution for their faith?

With the chance to join a great team, work in a positive culture, and develop your professional skills and experience, maybe it’s time for a new challenge?

Open Doors is a dynamic and growing international Christian charity that serves the needs of the persecuted church. Research for the Open Doors World Watch List 2018 shows that persecution against Christians in 2018 is increasing, with believers in over 60 countries experiencing violence, hostility and abuse for their faith.

Through our talented and committed team of just over 70 staff, the development office for the UK & Ireland enables holistic support through people and projects around the world by raising awareness and growing support. We are seeking to appoint an active, practising Christian* to help us achieve our goals.

The role

You will develop relationships with individual supporters so that in partnership we can meet the needs of the persecuted church. You will work hard to engage this incredible group of people, communicating their importance as a much needed part of our ministry. This includes developing meetings and events, developing bespoke reporting on the needs of the persecuted church along with other written and verbal communications to inform and engage our supporters.

About you

You will be a person of commitment and character able to use excellent administrative and interpersonal skills to serve individuals in a professional but personable way. You will have experience in a relationship management role or a similar role, and will be focused on achieving the best possible results to meet the great needs of the persecuted church. You will work closely with a small partnerships team and with the wider Open Doors team, using your emotional intelligence and determination to continuously improve our work, based on the best mutual interests of our partners and persecuted Christians.
