Do you feel you have a calling to serve in Christian ministry? Then we have some wonderful new opportunities to join our team here at Caring For Life...
Working at Caring For Life doesn’t just provide a job; it fulfils a calling into Christian Ministry. After 35 years, CFL continues to maintain its standpoint of only employing those who love the Lord Jesus. At Caring For Life, our work is based on the principle of Christian servanthood, and the way we support beneficiaries, and manage staff and volunteers, should all bring glory to God.
The principal aim of Caring For Life is to share the love of Jesus on a daily and very practical basis with many people, some of whom might have generally known nothing of His love; doing so through loving care and example, and it is our desire that they come to personal faith in Christ Jesus and become a part of His church.
We have some exciting opportunities for those wanting to work in Christian ministry, in a privileged environment where we get to share the love Jesus with the vulnerable and disadvantaged on the outskirts of Leeds.
These posts involve taking an active role in providing compassionate and consistent care to beneficiaries; taking part in prayer times; providing personal testimony of your experience of Jesus’ love, with both beneficiaries and members of the local community; and you may, from time to time, be asked to assist in supporting presentations in representing the Trust, predominantly to Christian church groups.
As such, there is a requirement for the holder of these posts to be a practising Christian.
This is an Occupational Requirement in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.
See below for current opportunities and register your interest.
All posts are subject to references and a DBS check.
Fundraising & Trusts - Full Time
Closing Date: TBC
We have a great opportunity in our fundraising team. This would ideally suit someone with excellent written skills; potentially a graduate, or someone who enjoys writing. We will provide all the necessary training with the opportunity to achieve professional qualifications through the Institute of Fundraising.
The role is absolutely crucial in gaining trust funding for the projects at Caring For Life. The position forms part of a team who work closely with each other to ensure supporters, prayer partners, churches and charitable trusts are well informed about what is going on a CFL.
Caring For Life has a wonderful relationship with our supporting trusts and the successful person would be responsible for nurturing and developing those close bonds.
Residential Support Worker
Wendy Margaret Home
Closing Date: TBC
Wendy Margaret offers a long term home to up to 8 ladies. As with Tindall House, it is not communal supported living but a home where the group have established themselves as a family. We require a part-time worker to join the team; to come and assist in providing a safe and loving home; encouraging the residents to develop in basic life skills, and social interactions; speaking to them of the Lord, praying that they come to know the Lord Jesus Christ; and nurturing those who do, as they develop in their faith.
It would involve some overnights and weekends and would support the team with helping with taking the ladies to appointments and covering holiday cover. The hours can be flexible and would be up to 30 hours per week. As with all residential work, no week is the same but the opportunity to nurture and provide consistent care will always be a priority.
Due to the nature of the position we require a lady to join the team.
