Job Title: Director
Working For: Christians on the Left
Location: Remote, with regular travel to Westminster.
Salary: £39,000 pro rata (0.6 FTE)
Length of Contract: Permanent
Christians on the Left (CotL) is looking for a dynamic new director to provide leadership at an exciting time for the organisation. Throughout the challenges of the last two years, we have been encouraged to see our membership flourish, as Christians up and down the country have become engaged and enthused about how God might be calling them to work for his Kingdom in a political context. We have seen members elected to positions in local and national government, with many more stepping out into the political arena and standing for election.
The new director will provide leadership in a crucial season for the organisation to build upon Christians on the Left’s growing influence and impact, develop hard-hitting policy campaigns, build our public profile and support members with their political participation while maintaining our financial security.
We are looking for an individual who has empathy with the aims and values of the organisation, so they can model and communicate our values into the realm of left-wing politics, fostering a spirit of dialogue and conversation, as we grapple with how to offer our values as a gift to wider society. The right candidate will be excited about the prospect of promoting our values in the public square, enabling Christians on the Left to be both the prophetic conscience of the Labour Party and a prophetic voice to the church about the politics of social justice. They will also be able to communicate their vision for the future of Christians on the Left.
The Director will work closely with the Office and Communications Manager, voluntary officers and the Executive Committee members, so will be a team player with a sense of being called to this work and the ability to inspire and enable others. An important part of our work is parliamentary and party engagement but we also endeavour to develop a stronger member network in every region of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The Director will lead on this vital work to resource, encourage and equip Christians on the Left members to transform wider society through political engagement.
