The Diocese of Truro is committed to resourcing and encouraging church communities in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly and needs a highly skilled person to encourage a Diocesan-wide spirit of generosity.

We are looking to appoint a Generous Giving Adviser to implement our generous giving strategy in alignment with the National Giving Strategy. This aims to broaden the understanding of and engagement with stewardship across the diocese and help build a thriving and generous church.

The majority of the role will be about getting out and meeting with Parochial Church Councils (PCC's), treasurers, clergy and congregations to encourage and enable them to identify and then find the resources, both financial and non-financial, necessary to fulfil their mission. The role involves the continuing promotion and take up of the national Parish Giving Scheme.

You will have a passion for mission and stewardship, excellent communication skills, the ability to inspire and engage, and confidence in talking about faith and giving with a strong grounding in theology. This is an exciting opportunity for someone who loves working with people to make a real difference to the church communities that make up our diocese.

Due to the nature of the role there is an occupational requirement for the role holder to be a practising Christian.

At the Diocese of Truro we really value work-life balance and employee wellbeing, have a friendly and comfortable office environment and are committed to supporting your development. We offer additional benefits such as free parking, a range of wellbeing activities and the Diocesan Pension Scheme with 9-15% employer contribution.
