Job Description

Christian Jobs is working exclusively on behalf of London City Mission (LCM) to recruit a Database Manager. This role forms part of an exciting restructure to help advance the mission of this amazing organisation. LCM are using their great financial position to invest in the advancement of their mission by creating a selection of new fundraising related roles.
London City Mission serves the Church of London in sharing the love of God and the good news of Jesus Christ with the least reached of London
One in three people don’t have a Christian friend to invite them to Church, open a Bible with them, or tell them the good news of Jesus. LCM want to see that change. The world has come to London – they long to see the gospel taken to the world by working alongside Churches to visit homes and go out into the streets of London with the good news of the gospel.
The Database Manager will play a key role in helping London City Mission achieve a sustained increase in their funds, enabling them to achieve their ambitious five year strategy: to mobilise and better support a growing, flourishing Church that is sharing the love of God and good news of Jesus Christ with London’s least reached communities. It’s a crucial and exciting time in the history and further development of London City Mission, and through this role the successful candidate will be able to make a difference in London for the salvation of souls and to the glory of God.
Working as the primary supporter data management specialist within LCM, maintain a central integrated CRM database, working with external suppliers to create the surrounding systems and processes to be used to support the team and to give supporters the best possible experience of partnering with London City Mission for the sake of the gospel. In order to optimise the value that the post holder is able to bring to the organisation, this role has been intentionally developed to operate at a senior level without line management responsibilities or inclusion in more generalist management meetings.
