About the Anglican Communion
The Anglican Communion Office is the permanent Secretariat for the Instruments of Communion of the Anglican Communion. It serves the Anglican Consultative Council, the Primates’ Meetings, and the Lambeth Conference as well as commissions, committees and groups that emerge from time to time, as the need arises. Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon serves as Secretary General of the Anglican Communion.
A related charity, the Anglican Alliance, is located in the ACO building and works closely with ACO staff. Its financial affairs are managed by the ACO finance team; its statutory accounts are consolidated into the ACO accounts.
The Lambeth Conference is a separate charitable company becoming fully operational in preparation of the next Conference in 2020. Its financial management will be undertaken within the ACO.
About trust fundraising
Most of the income of the Anglican Communion comes from contributions from the 39 Anglican Provinces. Fundraising from grant making trusts and foundations has been an irregular feature of previous income and has been underdeveloped. There is significant potential to this income from UK trusts and foundations. The position Trust Fundraiser will be based at St Andrew’s House in Westbourne Park, London W11, but an element of home working will be considered.
The role will service the trust fundraising needs of the Anglican Communion, The Anglican Alliance and the Lambeth Conference 2020.
The Trust Fundraiser will be managed by the Chief Operating Officer who has significant experience leading and directing fundraising in the UK voluntary sector.
