CAP shortlisted by Charity Times Awards…twice!

We are really pleased to have recently received news from Charity Times Awards that Christians Against Poverty has been shortlisted to receive two awards!

The first award we are shortlisted for is ‘Charity of the Year: with an income of £5million - £10million’. This is in recognition of our efforts to expand our debt help service, which now reaches over 260 local communities across the UK, and for the launch of our new initiative CAP Job Clubs (now with over 90 clubs). It also acknowledges our continued efforts to make all our processes as efficient as possible helping us to deliver the best service to those with the very least.

The second award we are shortlisted to receive is ‘Fundraising Team of Year’, in response to our campaign sponsoring Big Church Day Out last year. Through this campaign 1,000 people become Life Changers through our regular giving programme. It was already a huge encouragement to see so many people committed to support our work to break the burden of debt and poverty, so to have the fundraising campaign acknowledged is simply an added bonus!

The winners will be announced on Wednesday 22 October 2014 so watch this space…

Passionate about seeing tech used for good?

‘There’s just so much more we can do with technology!’

Have you ever uttered these words? Are you fascinated by the possibilities that information tech offers? Are you even more excited about using your IT skills for good?

CAP is a dynamic and forward thinking charity where technology serves a national and international vision to see people set free from the grip of debt and poverty. We currently have two exciting opportunities within our innovative and busy IT team.


Systems Developer

We are looking for a full time systems developer to assist us in what is our area of greatest need. Committed to bespoke systems rather than ‘off the shelf’ purchases, the CAP stable of products includes our debt counselling case management system, supporter CRM, CAP Money Course online budgeting tools and staff intranet. Excellent knowledge of PHP, MySQL, HTML and Linux, alongside good communication and time management skills are essential. Add to these a heart for UK poverty issues and you will be an ideal candidate who we want to meet. Go to the full job information.


IT Manager

A team of great minds always needs a head honcho! This role is suitable for a people manager with a technical background who loves to solve problems with their analytical skills. Looking after a team of talented IT professionals, our new IT Manager will work closely with our IT Director to facilitate the delivery of bespoke solutions and vital technology services to our rapidly growing charity.

Want to know more about the life-transforming work of Christians Against Poverty?​ Get your hands on a free copy of 'Nevertheless'.

Journey through John Kirkby's personal diary extracts as he shares the excitement and struggles of surrendering everything to a faithful God. This adventure of faith, often testing John to the limits, is a tangible demonstration of a God who is passionate about empowering his Church to be the answer for those who are poor and broken.

'Just finished "Nevertheless". One of the best books I've ever read! A true story of how God can use one man for greatness. From high flyer to almost bankrupt; salvation then pioneer of an international charity! Thank you John Kirkby for being so real and honest. Your story and vision of CAP to work with the local church, reaching the poor and oppressed is truly inspirational. Had me crying through most the book! It's with that "nevertheless faith" that we can all believe the impossible and watch God move!'
