The role holder will work closely with the senior leadership team and others across the department sharing knowledge, best practice and expertise.

About us

Christian Aid exists to create a world where everyone can live a full life, free from poverty. We are a global movement of people, churches and local organisations who passionately champion dignity, equality and justice worldwide. We are the changemakers, the peacemakers, the mighty of heart.

There’s never been a better time to join Christian Aid’s Fundraising & Supporter Engagement Department. We would say that, wouldn’t we? But we mean it. Despite the challenges we’ve all faced over recent years, we have grown income and smashed our targets, making a transformational impact for people in poverty. Your next career step could see you joining our passionate and energetic team of poverty-fighters. We inspire more than 250,000 supporters and thousands of supporting churches to raise £50 million annually to tackle extreme poverty.  

We’re committed to building a diverse and inclusive workplace, and recognise the value this brings in forming strong, creative and high performing teams. We welcome applications from all sections of the community, and from those with experience from outside of the voluntary sector. And no, you don’t have to be Christian to work here – we encourage people of all faiths and none to apply. We just ask that everyone lives out our values of dignity, equality, justice and love. We value a good work-life balance, so we’re open to part-time and flexible working. We also offer hybrid working for our office-based colleagues and the option of being a homeworker for most of our roles too.
