WYCLIFFE BIBLE TRANSLATORS
MAJOR DONOR FUNDRAISER
£40K PER ANNUM

 

Role context:

Wycliffe Bible Translators wants to ramp up the call across the UK and Ireland to get involved, in order to remove a significant obstacle to God’s global mission: the lack of scriptures in people’s heart language.
Wycliffe is in a strong position to tackle this obstacle in the 21st century. Wycliffe has a clear, captivating and distinctive message among Christian charities – that mission is most effective when people hear God speak their own language.

We simply want to ensure that people are able to read a sensitively and accurately translated Bible in their heart language. Delivering literacy classes and ensuring that the Bible is well used by local churches complements our main translation work.

Role purpose:

The Supporter Engagement team is responsible for communications and fundraising for Wycliffe Bible Translators. The Major Donor Fundraising Officer will support the Fundraising Manager to manage our portfolio of major donors, for the work of Wycliffe. This will be a varied role, which includes developing major donor journeys, managing the major donor lifecycle for individual donors, helping coordinate major donor events and working with the Major Donor Executive to ensure that all research, administration and data on major donors is kept updated.

This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in developing this crucial income stream through good relationships with our growing portfolio of major donors. The role will be in keeping with Wycliffe’s mission to be an expression of the Christian life and faith.

Requirements:

Please download the application documents from www.wycliffe.org.uk/Majordonorfundraiser

We hope that you will find the information in these documents helpful and clear. If Wycliffe’s vision is a cause you can champion and the position fits with your skills, values and experience, then we would love to hear from you.

If an informal conversation about the role would help, please email the resourcing team at resourcing@wycliffe.org.uk to arrange one.
Your application should include:

  • A covering letter, of no more than two pages in total, summarising your reasons for applying and explaining your ability to fulfil the Aims of the Role and meet the Person Specification.
  • A completed Candidate Information Form.
  • A full CV, including educational qualifications and full employment history, with a particular focus on experience and skills relevant to this role.

Your application should be sent to the resourcing team at (resourcing@wycliffe.org.uk) by 9am on Monday 15th July. All applications will be treated as confidential.

Should you be shortlisted, we will invite you for an interview at the offices of Wycliffe Bible Translators in central High Wycombe.
