Job description

Are you passionate about social justice and want to work for a small charity where you can make a real difference? Are you experienced in communications and fundraising and want the flexibility of working from home? Do you love taking initiative and implementing creative ideas? If you can answer yes to all of the above, we'd love to hear from you!

The Welcome Directory has a simple yet powerful vision: to help faith communities become places where people who leave prison find acceptance. A place to belong that not only nurtures faith but also offers appropriate practical support.

People are at the very heart of this work; those leaving prison have a name, a story as well as hopes and dreams for their lives beyond the prison gate.

JOB SUMMARY:                     

The post holder will develop engagement and funds from donors and ensure communications with all key stakeholders, including the engagement of new faith communities.

This will include, but may not be limited to:

  • Ensuring the implementation of the communications strategy, in line with the operational development of The Welcome Directory, including:
    • Maintaining and developing The Welcome Directory website, social media, and seeking out new communications engagement opportunities
    • Effectively communicating with stakeholders, including the development and dissemination of a quarterly newsletter and an annual review involving impact analysis
    • The development of articles based on stories from Faith Communities and Prison Leavers about their experiences of welcome and journeys beyond the prison gates, in collaboration with the wider TWD staff team
    • Developing content for the production of a promotional video(s)
  • Maintaining, identifying and developing key relationships with donors of The Welcome Directory (including institutional, corporate, individual), successfully raising funds
  • Developing grant proposal narratives for donor applications, in collaboration with the Project Manager
  • Supporting the preparation and delivery of the Prisons Awareness Course, in collaboration with the Project Manager, including monitoring and evaluation of the course
  • Developing and adapting content for the annual production of the physical directory, including updating registration details of faith communities
  • Engaging and developing relationships with ‘Prisons Week’
  • From time to time, you may be required to undertake additional activities which are appropriate to the development nature of this role as required by your line manager.

Whilst this role is fixed term, there may be the potential to extend where funding permits
