About the charity:
Embrace the Middle East is an international Christian charity helping people of all faiths and none to free themselves from a life of poverty and injustice. Our work and the work of our Christian partners, in Egypt, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, Syria and Iraq, who run hospitals, clinics, schools and centres for people with disabilities, really does make a difference. Together we lift up the vulnerable and marginalised, serving families escaping violence or persecution, people living with all kinds of disability, women and children deprived of access to vital education and health services.
About the role:
This is an important time to join Embrace the Middle East. In 2024, we will celebrate 170 years working with Middle East Christians. We approach this point in our history, having begun our ambitious five-year strategy in 2021, Hope in Action, confident in our mission, and hopeful in our vision.
However, we are not complacent. We take neither our loyal supporters, nor our partners, for granted. We are conscious that they trust us to do everything possible to live up to the commitment and faithful work of our forebears. Which is why we are committed to excellence in everything we do. We are ambitious, but also realistic, in the face of sometimes daunting challenges. Amongst these is the challenge to raise sufficient funds to match our partnership, programme and supporter engagement ambitions.
To lead this important work, we are looking for a Director of Fundraising to develop and implement our Fundraising strategy, encompassing an authentic and compassionate approach, aligning Embrace’s humanitarian and advocacy objectives and to develop and grow Embrace’s income.
You will be an enthusiastic fundraising leader with a strong track record of fundraising leadership in £3m-£10m charities and a good understanding of UK churches across many denominations. You will also need to have strong technical expertise in at least two fundraising areas – ideally major donors and individually giving. You will be a strong team player who thrives in a creative, collaborative environment.
The ideal candidate will also have:
- Experience of leading and developing and coaching a Fundraising team to achieve their very best
- Ability to engage others in setting a clear direction and in driving plans forward with energy and credibility
- Project management skills to deliver multiple projects simultaneously
- Excellent interpersonal and relationship building skills
- Sympathy for Embrace’s mission with the Christian faith
What we can offer you:
- The opportunity to play a vital role in driving forward our five year strategy
- 30 days holiday including Bank Holidays
- A flexible working environment - flexi-time & remote working arrangements, and contribution towards home working expenses
- Generous contributory pension scheme of up to 10% employer contributions.
- Life Assurance of three times annual salary
- Enhanced sick pay
- Reimbursement of pre-agreed travel expenses.
- Training and development programme for all employees.
- Commitment to staff health & wellbeing.
About Embrace the Middle East
Our vision is rooted in, and inspired by, the Gospel, in particular Christ’s invitation to care for those most in need. Every person is created in the image and likeness of God and is deserving of the dignity bestowed on them by God.
Supporting our partners to transform lives and restore the dignity of the most excluded and marginalised, our work contributes to a culture of human flourishing in a war-torn region. We help our partners to sustain the declining presence of Christians serving the needs of the vulnerable in Middle Eastern societies, without regard to faith or background.
Ours is a vision of love in action: where there is a need – for refuge, a home however temporary, for health care, for education, for safeguarding, for economic empowerment, for justice and human rights – we, with and through our partners, want to respond.

Citizens UK is a people power alliance of diverse local communities working together for the common good.
Our mission is to develop leaders, strengthen civic organisations and make change. Our 550 member communities are deeply rooted in their local areas and connect every day to the lives of hundreds of thousands of people. Through the method of community organising, we enable people experiencing powerlessness to develop their leadership and come together with the power and strategy to make change.
This leads to hundreds of neighbourhood improvements - from zebra crossings outside primary schools to renovated public toilets in cemeteries. And it leads to some of the biggest campaign impacts in the UK, such as winning over £1.5 billion of wages through the UK Living Wage campaign, securing a legal cap on the cost of credit to control exploitative lending, and ending the detention of children for immigration purposes. We enable local campaigns to grow into large-scale social change projects such as the Living Wage Foundation, Parents and Communities Together (PACT), and Sponsor Refugees, that form an integral part of our theory of change. The most prominent of these is the rapidly growing Living Wage Foundation with a network of nearly 9,000 accredited Living Wage Employers across the UK.
Brighton & Hove Citizens is a newly-established local civil society alliance, made up of a range of educational, faith, and community institutions. Whilst the alliance is fairly new - it was established in 2018 - it has grown to become the largest alliance of civil society institutions across the city.

As such, we are looking for someone who’ll be able to engage with and motivate young people in order to deliver enriching opportunities for them to become part of our local alliance.
