last modified Jun 06, 2016 10:06 AM
Are you passionate about deepening public understanding of religion? CIP's partner organisation Coexist House is looking for a new Project Lead to join its dynamic team.

The objective of this role is to guide a young project with a big dream, from its early start-up days, towards operating as a sustainable and flourishing organisation, ready to meet its ambitious goals.


Coexist House


About Coexist House

Coexist House will be a new global centre in the heart of London for transforming public understanding about the practices and perspectives of the word's religions. In doing so, it will have a transformative impact on the quality of debate surrounding religion and will promote better, more peaceful, relationships across divides.

The role

Working with the Coexist House Trustees (who comprise senior representatives of the founding partners and others) and reporting directly to the Head of the Faculty of Divinity in Cambridge, the Project Lead will work towards the goal of creating Coexist House. At the helm of a small team, the Project Lead will manage the project's budget and infrastructure, planning its development for the coming years. The post-holder will consider options for a physical space for Coexist House, and will oversee a programme of Coexist House 'Without Walls' events. The role of the Project Lead will be as Coexist House's lead advocate, fundraising and widening the pool of its supporters. He or she will have overall responsibility for Coexist House's communications and relationships and will support the Trustees in their fundraising efforts, and where appropriate will work to grow and develop their Board and sub-committees.



The successful candidate will have a passion for the cause of deepening public understanding of religion, although their experience may be in a complementary field. Representing the University of Cambridge on behalf of Coexist House, he or she will be a believer in the value of academic research for public-facing projects. The person appointed will be expected to have a good honours degree, experience of fundraising and strategic planning, and skills in managing projects.

Working on a visionary project with an exciting roster of tools, supporters and contacts at its disposal, you will be a driven self-starter who can run with opportunities and can deploy excellent planning, communication and leadership skills.
