Community Partnerships Manager (North East)
Do you enjoy presenting, building relationships, and networking? Are you able to inspire others to bring lasting change? If so, we’d love to hear from you!
The Leprosy Mission is the world’s largest leprosy-focused organisation, a pioneer in our field, with over 145 years’ experience serving people affected by this disease. As a leading international Christian development charity, we work in 10 countries across Africa and Asia to defeat leprosy and transform lives.
Today, one person every two minutes is diagnosed with leprosy. It’s a disease of poverty, striking the most vulnerable. Left untreated, it causes permanent disability. Stigma means that people affected by this disease are often rejected by those closest to them.
We are looking for an inspirational communicator to be the face of The Leprosy Mission. You’ll be working from home, with extensive travel across your region. As part of a fun and supportive team, you’ll be changing the lives of people who have been rejected by society. There’s nothing more rewarding that that!
We have a culture of growing and learning together, providing extensive training in fundraising and international development. You’ll also have opportunities to visit projects overseas and see our work first hand.
We’re looking for:
- an engaging public speaker to a range of audiences including churches, community groups and businesses
- proven success in fundraising or sales
- a confident networker
- experience of managing volunteers
- excellent interpersonal and communication skills
- willingness to work on Sundays and evenings as required, and occasional Saturdays
- the ability to develop and deliver a regional fundraising strategy.
The Leprosy Mission is an explicitly Christian charity, serving those of all faiths and none. There is an occupational requirement for the Community Partnerships Manager to be a committed Christian as you will be preaching in supporting churches.
A valid UK driving license is an essential requirement for the role and a car allowance will be provided. The successful candidate will be required to undertake a work health questionnaire.
The Leprosy Mission has a zero-tolerance policy towards any abuse, neglect and exploitation of all people. Successful candidates are expected to understand, sign and comply with all organisational policies, including the Safeguarding Code of Conduct and the Safeguarding Children & Vulnerable Adults Policy.
Recruitment to all roles within The Leprosy Mission includes criminal record checks and the collection of relevant references. A criminal record will not necessarily bar you from joining us as an employee; this will depend on the circumstances of any offences.
