Volunteering and Jobs

 Jobs

We don’t have any job openings at the moment. We are a small organisation and on average we have about one job advertised a year. Vacancies are advertised on our twitter and facebook pages, our monthly e-news (sign up via the orange box at the top right of this webpage) and on some job websites (usually charityjob.co.uk).

Volunteering

We welcome enquiries from potential volunteers. Please email office@for.org.uk to find out how you could help, or with suggestions of what you would like to do.

If you do volunteer with us, we promise a friendly atmosphere and as much tea as you can drink. We may be able to cover travel/lunch expenses – we will discuss that with you.

Please contact the office for the latest information. 

Trustees Required

Our Annual Council. meeting on 13th July 2019, will be seeking to elect new Trustees and a new Treasurer from the Fellowship.  

Volunteer Trustees Needed

The Trustee Board is made up of members of the Fellowship who commit to attend 4 meetings a year, held daytime in Oxford (x2), North England (x1) and South England (x1).  These meetings set strategy, create and scrutinise projects, and support the small staff team who work alongside Fellowship members.

Alongside the formal role offer to get involved in projects or working groups of the Fellowship as their time permits. Locally they often take an active role in promoting our campaigns and recruiting new supporters.

2019/20 is a vital year for the Fellowship. We’ll be writing a new strategy and would especially encourage people with specialist knowledge or experience in any of the following:

  • Campaigns and Advocacy
  • Fundraising
  • Resource writing
  • Peacemaking
  • Theology
  • HR / Legal

To find out more about joining the Board, please contact Richard Bickle (Chair of the Fellowship) by emailing chair@for.org.uk or by ringing the FoR Office (01865 250781) and asking to be called by Richard.

Volunteer Treasurer Needed

The Treasurer will oversee the financial matters of the charity. This includes presenting reports, checking policy in line with good practice and in accordance with the governing document and legal requirements. They will report to the Board of Trustees at regular intervals about the financial health of the organisation. The Treasurer will ensure that effective policies, procedures, and controls are followed by the charity. Their work will be supported by the Finance and Administration Officer of the Fellowship.

Previous experience of managing finances in a business or charity setting is preferable.
