Head of Major Gifts
Location: Hybrid, London. Min 2 days on-site.
We are working in partnership with London City Mission (LCM), whose vision is to see Jesus Christ made known in every community in London.
We are seeking a talented Head of Major Gifts. This is a wonderful opportunity to lead LCM in developing enriching partnerships with a wide array of vital supporters that maximises mutual value. As the Head of Major Gifts you will lead LCM in developing, nurturing and overseeing relationships with individuals, trusts and corporates who have the potential to significantly impact LCM’s financial support. By crafting bespoke opportunities, you will help enable these partners to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with LCM to advance the gospel.
The successful candidate will have:
· Proven track record in developing and overseeing connections with high net-worth individuals, including face-to-face relationships.
· Experience of developing and delivering growth strategies.
· Proven background in crafting investment proposals or impact reports to a high professional standard.
· Experience of managing teams and projects, with experience of successfully working collaboratively.
· Exceptional verbal and written communication skills, coupled with a remarkable capacity to influence and excel in interpersonal interactions.
You will be part of a charity that has daily and weekly staff prayer meetings, monthly team days that include worship and teaching, and lots of opportunities to live out your faith. If you possess this unique blend of gifting and skills, along with a deep desire to support LCM’s mission to reach those who may be less likely to encounter the message of Jesus in London, then we would love to hear from you.
