Giving Adviser, Salisbury Diocese (salary in the region of £36,000)

by Sally Finn last modified 30 Mar, 2021 07:51 AM

Supported by the National Church Giving Advisor Fund, we are now in a position to develop our capacity on the ground and support parishes to bring this wider work to fruition by the appointment of a Giving Adviser. If you think you have the creativity and drive to take this role forward we very much look forward to hearing from you.

The Diocese of Salisbury

As a priority work area for the Diocese we want to challenge ourselves about generosity and manage our assets well so that we grow new income and release funds for pioneering work in mission and ministry. The holder of this exciting new role will be well supported within the Diocese, with a strong Inspiring Giving Working Group helping to embed this work. They will also benefit from peer support in the Church of England Giving Advisor Network and have access to advice from the National Giving Team.

Church of England statistics, such as planned giving per week per person and giving as a percentage of income, show that the Diocese is currently underperforming in some key areas of giving. This means of course, that there is huge potential for development and growth. Over the last eighteen months, we have invested time and resource to really understand the lay of the land around giving and generosity in the Diocese. From this we are developing a Diocesan Giving Vision and the new Giving Advisor will be key to shaping this further and bringing it to life.

The pandemic has shifted the approach to the rollout of the Giving Vision, and in 2020 focussed on online training to ensure churches are equipped to access different giving mechanisms. In 2021 we have begun to roll out the broader elements relating to generous culture such as training opportunities for clergy. We are building towards a diocesan-wide Giving Campaign in the autumn which will provide a fantastic platform for the Giving Advisor to build relationships and the foundation for their work in the coming months and years.
