The Human Resources Manager will provide strategic direction and expertise for the Diocese of Liverpool (DBF) and Liverpool Cathedral. They will act as a strategic partner to the Diocesan Secretary of the Diocese of Liverpool/Chief Officer of Liverpool Cathedral (this is a joint post held by a single individual), Bishop’s Senior Staff Team and the Dean of Liverpool Cathedral, in all matters relating to the management of employees / clergy office holders.
As role holder you will ensure policies and practices implemented reflect best practice in employment legislation and church law/practice and in the management of employees and clergy office holders. This is a varied and hands-on role as the direct HR capacity is limited to the HR Manager and HR Adviser, supported by contracted legal advice. A key challenge is to equip and empower managers to be confident and competent practitioners rather than constantly providing a remedial or interventionist HR function.
Diocesan Boards of Finance & Liverpool Cathedral
These are significant times for both the cathedral and diocese. The cathedral is in the process of building back after lockdown and looking forward to our centenary in 2024 where we are hoping to welcome 1 million visitors (our previous record was over 800,000 in 2019). The diocese is in a process of re-looking at purpose, vision and values amid a thorough-ongoing review of culture and necessary steps to flourish into the future. We are confident that both processes will land well and look to the future with hope and expectation.
Within this context, the HRM will provide strategic direction and hands on HR expertise across both organisations comprising the following structures of personnel:

Diocese of Liverpool (Liverpool Diocesan Board of Finance - LDBF)
The LDBF is the body, which oversees financial and administrative work to advance the mission and ministry of the worshipping communities and bishops in the Diocese of Liverpool. The LDBF is part of the Church of England. The Church of England is the established church in England and part of the worldwide Anglican communion. As a result, it has various privileges and responsibilities.
The main aim of the Church of England is to have a sustaining Christian presence in every community. The Church of England is sub divided into a range of geographical areas called dioceses. Each Diocese is overseen by a Diocesan Bishop and governed through a representative group of clergy and non-clergy known as synod. Together they decide how to live out that aim in our local area. Our diocesan vision is that we are asking God for a bigger church to make a bigger difference so that there are more people knowing Jesus and more justice in the world.
Our diocese is a partnership between:
We aim to operate:
Our aim is to be collaborative, respectful,professional and dynamic. We measure each other on how we live out these values and work hard to live them out in our relationships with one another and those we serve.
Liverpool Cathedral is part of the Anglican Diocese of Liverpool and it is part of the Church of England. Liverpool Cathedral is primarily a place of prayer and worship. At least three times a day the community comes together to worship God and to pray for the needs of the world, the church and people. As a Cathedral, we welcome all and recognise that some staff have no faith, or maybe exploring faith, but all are welcome.
Liverpool Cathedral is a place of encounter. That encounter is between God, people, space, and partnerships. The Cathedral activity is diverse and within that diversity, people will encounter other people, the building and its vast space and local organisations through its partnerships and God.
Our values are important to the organisation and to each of us as we aim to be inclusive, to act with integrity, to be excellent in all our dealings and operate with a dynamic approach.
