            Services Manager

            Acts Trust, Lincoln UK

            MISSION for the role

            Acts Trust is a Lincoln based Christian Charity founded by Alive Church in 2006. We have a mission to Empower People to End Poverty.

            We have a holistic understanding of poverty and how it affects people’s lives. As such we take a holistic response; providing support for people during a crucial time of need (such as food aid) while empowering them to understand and overcome the root causes and wider issues around the need (such as courses and coaching)

            We are seeking an effective leader of people with a strategic mindset to join our team in a senior role to directly manage our projects and teams within our RAFT Department (Restore And Food Teams), specifically:

            Lincoln Foodbank
            The Restore Programme

            These projects and teams have a great local reputation and are delivering essential support to local residents. They are intrinsically linked as we seek to end the need for food banks and support people to build up the skills and resilience they need to live a fulfilled and poverty-free life.

            The core mission of the Services Manager is to lead our thriving RAFT Department, galvanise and inspire a team of staff and volunteers to run the projects effectively and to Empower People to End Poverty in their own lives and communities.

            The Services Manager will be a charismatic leader with a high capacity to lead and a heart for raising up and building teams. They will have a positive outlook, an unwavering commitment to the mission, confident in leadership, prepared to support in delivery at every level of the department, passionate about their Christian faith and an eye for the bigger picture of what we are going to achieve.

            It is a genuine occupational requirement for the post holder to be a practising Christian due to core elements including leading, teaching and participating in christian prayer and worship.

            You can learn more about our work on the Acts Trust website.

            OUR CURRENT PROGRAMME

            In partnership with local churches, primarily Alive Church (Lincoln locations) we play a strategic role in supporting local people:

            • Reaching and Connect  – Acts Trust projects are designed to reach people at a point of need and connect them to appropriate support. 

            For example; Lincoln Foodbank

            1. Building Community – Our partner churches, such as Alive Church and the Foodbank host churches, are best placed to build community with the people we reach. This enables people to form positive friendships in a safe and welcoming place so that they don’t face challenges alone. Churches can also support people who are interested in exploring the Christian faith.

            For example, Welcome Cafes, Toddler Groups, Mens/Womens Support Groups, International Cafes

            1. Resourcing and Development – Acts Trust projects are also designed to weave courses and support programmes into the existing communities run by partner churches to support people with personal development.

            For example; The Restore Programme (Job Club, Life Skills, Budgeting, Wellbeing)

            Based on this model, the RAFT department focuses primarily on reaching and connecting through Lincoln Foodbank and Lincoln Community Grocery and on resourcing and development through the Restore Programme, working alongside the local churches who have responsibility for community building.

            The Services Manager will coordinate this programme (team, activities, resources and training), supported by an Assistant Manager, ensuring each team is well resourced individually, and collaborating together.
