Oasis Hub Waterloo


Help build our community movement in Waterloo

At Oasis Hub Waterloo our vision is to help build a community where everyone is included, and everyone is supported to reach their God-given potential and to live life in all its fullness.

In 2003 our founder Steve Chalke became the minister of Oasis Church Waterloo and, inspired by the life and person of Jesus, we looked to open the doors wide. We opened a coffee shop, then we started a youth football team, then more youth and children’s work, then a befriending scheme for older local residents, then a foodbank… and over the years we’ve added a lot more.

Through all this growth we’re still committed to our ethos, and the church is still at the heart of all we do. We never impose the beliefs that underpin our ethos on anyone, but regardless of whether they have any religious belief, all our employees work towards displaying the same core values:

  • A passion to include everyone
  • A desire to treat everyone equally, respecting differences
  • A commitment to healthy, open relationships
  • A deep sense of hope that things can change and be transformed
  • A sense of perseverance to keep us going for the long haul

We’ve now been involved in the Waterloo community for almost two decades, and we’re still striving to help people of all ages and situations feel included, to know that they can contribute and realise a deep sense of belonging. We’d love you to join us.

Current vacancies:

Corporate fundraiser (freelance)

Oasis Hub Waterloo is looking to appoint a high quality and seasoned corporate fundraiser.

Oasis Hub Waterloo is a progressive charity providing a broad and inclusive range of community development services for vulnerable and isolated people living in Lambeth & Southwark. We aim to build communities that are healthy, safe, supportive and full of opportunity, where each individual is supported to reach their full potential in life.

Our services incorporate two Academy schools, a children’s centre, family services and support, a city farm, sports programmes, targeted and community youth programmes, a foodbank and community fridge, debt and immigration advice centre, projects focusing on wellbeing and exercise, and a church!

We would like a Corporate Fundraiser to enable Oasis Waterloo to achieve its fundraising aims by:

  • Finding a minimum of eight corporate organisations or corporate foundations that align with our values and vision that would be open to an approach for financial support.
  • Initiating a relational approach alongside the Oasis team with the selected corporate organisations or corporate foundations.
  • Co-developing and co-delivering with the Oasis team test drives for the identified corporates as well as our current corporate partners.
  • Working with the Oasis Waterloo Team to plan our November 2024 fundraising event in central London.

Oasis Waterloo is offering an attractive daily rate and expecting the appointed person to commit to 40 days until the end of 2024. This role demands that a significant number of the contracted days are conducted from the Oasis Waterloo office near London Waterloo Station.

Additional budget has been allocated for ‘test drive’ events designed to support and develop the format, content, and audience of the November event.
To express your interest please provide a CV with two referees, and a covering letter expressing how your qualities and experience will enable Oasis Waterloo to deliver the above. Maximum day rate £400 depending on experience and track record. Start date April 1st 2024 but negotiable.
