Approx £14.5k to £15.3k depending on experience

Our vision is to be a family of Generous Churches Making and Nurturing Disciples, and we are currently in a process of strategy development to meet this vision through goals to Reach, Grow and Sustain: to reach those we currently don’t; to grow in discipleship, influence and numbers; underpinned by achieving sustainable finances. 

The Diocese of York is investing very significantly in two key programmes to reach people, make disciples and launch new worshipping communities among two overlapping demographics.

Mustard Seed - Growing Disciples in Places where Life is Tough

Multiply – Growing Disciples among those in the their 20s, 30s and 40s

We seek an administrator to work across these two programmes, providing administrative support and office management to the Mustard Seed and Multiply teams who are geographically dispersed across the Diocese.

The role is available 24.5 hours per week.  You will work closely on a day-to-day basis with those delivering the programmes.

Tasks include:

  • Acting as a point of contact
  • Diary planning
  • Secretarial support for governance meetings
  • Collecting data for reporting purposes

You will be educated to A-level or equivalent standard and have previous administrative experience.  You will be self-motivated and highly organised, adept at being a key team player, even when working remotely.  You will have a professional manner, a flexible approach, and be confident in dealing with sensitive and confidential matters.
