Church Urban Fund is in a period of transition. CUF is becoming a vehicle for place-based, relational social action, ecumenical collaboration with different churches, and work with different faith communities, and replicable service delivery. Our hope is that this stimulates a truly national faith-based movement which offers something for every church, and for faith groups, and a national platform for the stories of grassroots voices to be heard. CUF has several strands of work including the Together Network, Near Neighbours, the Just Finance Foundation, and Places of Welcome.
The Partnerships Support Officer role is to cover a maternity leave. The Partnerships team are key to strengthening existing and building new partnerships. The individual will support the Director of Partnerships to build a robust credible partnerships platform and be key to the external face of CUF. The role is designed to work alongside other CUF staff such as those involved in communications, and policy and research, to create a collaborative, strategic, agile, innovative, efficient, productive, effective – and most of all – mission driven organisation.
This full-time role requires innovation and interpersonal skills together with passion for change, agility and success. This role will report into the Director of Partnerships. This post is a maternity leave cover, and we would like the person appointed to start as soon as possible, so that there could be crossover.
This person will have a base at our London office but is likely to be home-working, so they could easily be living in Luton!
