It also services the Committee responsible for overseeing this work.
This is an interesting and varied opportunity for a Resource and Policy Support Officer who will provide key operational support to the Pastoral and Closed Churches department.
Your role will include maintaining and developing Departmental web pages and statistical databases, helping to ensure effective systems are in place, and providing support, policy development and delivery of departmental projects.
To be successful you will need excellent IT skills, a well-organised and methodical approach and the ability to research, analyse, interpret and summarise detailed information. With the ability to relate to people at all levels, you will bring accuracy and precision to the role as well as the flexibility to adjust to a wide range of both demanding and routine tasks.
