Job description

Aims of the role

Wycliffe is well known in some denominations but there are others where it is not yet known and the task of Bible translation has been assumed to have been completed many years ago. We love to introduce churches and individuals to the unfinished task and see fruit grow from these relationships.

As Regional Manager for Scotland and Northern England, you will be responsible for leading Wycliffe’s engagement with churches across the region. Drawing on your experience of fundraising and managing volunteers, you will lead a team of Wycliffe members and volunteers and invite growing numbers of churches from many different denominations to participate in making God’s word available to all people. As a confident and inspiring public speaker, you will be able to preach and present in a variety of church settings, and coach and mentor others to do the same.

The primary areas of focus are:

  • Leading and managing a team of Wycliffe members and volunteers in order to deliver increased income and recruitment across the region.
  • Assist the Director for Church Engagement in developing and delivering a church engagement strategy for Scotland and the north of England to grow support for the task of Bible translation through prayer, increased income from church congregations, and recruitment of new Wycliffe members.
  • In collaboration with Wycliffe’s wider Church Engagement and Supporter Engagement teams, support the recruitment, training and supervision of new and existing volunteers.
  • Ensuring that Wycliffe is effectively represented throughout the region by engaging with regional church structures and participating in strategically important regional events.

This is a challenging and exciting role, and one which is crucial for Wycliffe’s future effectiveness. It involves large amounts of one-to-one contact with individuals, including students, in churches and other Christian groups, and at events. The role requires extensive travel within the UK (primarily but not exclusively within Scotland and the north of England), and occasional overseas travel.

Coordinate a team of Wycliffe members and volunteers in order to deliver increased income and recruitment across the region.

  • Supervise a small team of members and volunteers in Wycliffe’s Scottish office.
  • Monitor and report on performance against agreed objectives.
  • Ensure that fundraising activities by staff, members, and volunteers in the region comply with charity law and the Fundraising Regulator’s Code of Fundraising Practice.

Assist the Director for Church Engagement in developing and delivering a church engagement strategy for Scotland and the north of England to grow support for the task of Bible translation through prayer, increased income from church congregations, and recruitment of new Wycliffe members.

  • Ensure sufficient numbers of volunteers are recruited, trained and deployed to support the delivery of the church engagement strategy.
  • In conjunction with the People team, follow up and support all individuals who enquire about serving with Wycliffe.
  • Increase quantity and effectiveness of church congregational fundraising activities to increase income.
  • Create opportunities for new church partnerships.
  • Organise and lead overseas vision trips for key churches or church leaders in Scotland and the north of England.

In collaboration with Wycliffe’s wider Church Engagement and Supporter Engagement teams, support the recruitment, training and supervision of new and existing volunteers.

  • Facilitate regular training opportunities for new and existing volunteers.
  • In conjunction with the People team, inform the recruitment of new volunteers and carry out initial interviews with applicants.
  • Ensure volunteers are appropriately supported and resourced at all times.
