Parish Giving Advisers - Giving Development
We are looking for energetic people with good leadership and communication skills, with the ability to encourage and motivate others in generous stewardship in a rural setting.
Based from home or office (hot desks - in Hereford) for whole diocese, times and travelling to suit the requirements of the role
Giving Development (1 post half time): The primary and specific tasks of this role are the promotion and implementation of ‘new’ and ‘other’ ways to give – online / contactless / ‘friends of’ schemes / social media giving / crowdfunding, etc. As a Diocese during the Covid 19 situation, we have experienced a significantly increased level of interest and engagement from parishes with on-line giving platforms of all types and their creative application in numerous different contexts and forums; websites, social media, use of QR codes, and for regular giving, one-off donations and fundraising and sponsored events. Many churches within the Diocese of Hereford continue to enjoy a strong degree of support (including financial support) from their surrounding communities, as well as high numbers of occasional visitors and tourists (we are a popular area for tourists and almost all our churches are open each and every day), and there is scope for considerable development of the opportunities for giving and income that these situations present. A significant part of this role will be to lead on Diocesan implementation of contactless giving availability within churches, coming out of implementation of the objectives of the Church of England National Giving Strategy within the area of digital giving. The post-holder will lead on the management of the Diocese’s own online giving resources through its “Generous Giving” website pages, and work with members of the diocesan Communications Team to ensure effective social media presence and messaging on all aspects of Christian giving and generosity.
