Do you have a passion for our persecuted brothers and sisters in Christ?
Do you have a passion to use your skills to connect with churches and volunteers to support the work of Open Doors?
Can you demonstrate broad understanding of the Church/Christian community throughout the UK and Ireland?
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 are looking for a talented individual to lead the new Caseload Calling Team as they seek to identify, cultivate and steward existing and potential Open Doors Churches and volunteers across the UK&I, so that they are motivated and equipped to give, act, pray and volunteer for the persecuted church. You will take part in all tasks associated with maintaining effective and inspiring one-to-one contact with church leaders and representatives, through a variety of channels while providing exceptional support to our volunteers in every communication and will add value to their experience by inspiring, involving, connecting, celebrating and praying with them.
You will be responsible for the planning and delivery of the daily Caseload Calling Team workload, as well as the delivery of ad-hoc church calling campaigns. You will also be responsible for developing individual team members and developing a positive culture and ethos within the team and help to facilitate regional Open Doors events, working closely with regional Church Relationship Managers.
This is an exciting time to join us. 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.
