Would you like to help bridge the gap between the UK church and the persecuted church?

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.

The Supporter Relations Team are the first point of contact for all Open Doors supporters. They exist to build strong relationships with our supporters, including churches and individuals.

As the Supporter Relations Team Supervisor  you will:

  • Line Manage the Supporter Relations Team Members (x3)
  • Lead the Supporter Relations team (which include the Supporter Relations Team Specialists x2) in the absence of the Supporter Relations Team Leader,

You will be required to motivate the Supporter Relations Team, protect the ethos of the team and contribute towards a positive working environment. You will play a significant role in training new staff and supporting existing staff by answering questions. This necessitates an in-depth level of knowledge about the day-to-day tasks of Supporter Relations, including the processes, IT systems and general information related to Supporter Relations’s responsibilities, as well as staying up to date about the work of Open Doors in the UK and overseas.
