The St Paul’s Institute, a department of St Paul’s Cathedral which exists to engage with questions of morality and ethics and how they relate to finance, business and the economy, is seeking a Communications and Events Manager as part of its strategic expansion plan.
The mission of St. Paul’s Institute is to influence the way leaders from the city, business, professions and wider society see, think and feel about the biggest economic and social issues of our times. Over the long term our aim is to contribute to the transformation of society for the common good, by creating the possibility for systemic and structural change. We will do this through participative open dialogue, creative research and influence, acting as a catalyst to bring people from all sectors and walks of life together to explore ‘higher ground’ and find new ways forward. Our exploration of ‘higher ground’ will be distinctive because it is informed by a Christian outlook on the world, both in the way we work and in the questions we pose. In doing so we will walk as companions, with others, seeking not only the truth of how things are, but also the truth of how things might otherwise be.
To realise such a strategy, we start by working on issues of the highest importance, to the times we live in. Such issues may well be difficult, cross cutting, bridging the often-divided worlds, of the city, business, professions, politics, wider society and faith. We will act as a catalyst, partnering with other academic institutions, professional bodies, communities and social groups to maximise influence of the issues we are working on.
The world is changing in unnerving ways, and we seek to explore how power is evolving, affecting our economy, wider society, the communities in which we live and our personal lives and freedoms. Bringing this agenda to life, we propose that our first major theme be focused on the Nature of Power in the 21st Century. We all witness the imbalance and distortion of power daily on our ‘screens’ and on our ‘streets’ as we walk past the powerless every-day. We will consider how power relations are changing and how this may help or hinder the creation of the common good.
To help us to achieve these aspirations, we are now recruiting for a dynamic Communications and Events Manager – a motivated individual who can work to build our profile, our stakeholders, and our impact.
