Our aim is for everyone in the National Church Institutions (NCIs) to feel that they belong, and are valued for who they are and what they contribute. Together, our people contribute in different ways towards our common purpose, whichever NCI they work in and whatever their background.
The Clewer Initiative (TCI) enables Church of England dioceses and wider church networks to raise awareness of modern slavery, identify victims and to help provide victim support and care. Learn More >
TCI believes that the solutions to modern slavery already exist within the community and that the Church of England, which is present in all communities and is at the heart of many, has a primary responsibility in leading these efforts.
This is an opportunity to engage the dioceses and parishes of the Church of England in the fight against modern slavery.
We are looking for a new team member who can bring their experience of community development work and who can use this, to set up and maintain diocesan projects which challenge modern slavery.
You will work with volunteers to mobilise parishes to tackle modern slavery. Your work will also contribute to the resourcing of the National team, as you collaborate with them on the overall strategy.
Your knowledge of safeguarding procedures will be essential together with your wider understanding of the role of statutory safeguarding in the area of vulnerability. Experience of identifying and then working with potential victims of exploitation and modern slavery would also be desirable.
This post requires regular national travel (2 days per week), no more than 15 Saturdays per year and out of hours meetings. You will also attend London based team meetings and work at least one day a fortnight from Church House, Westminster.
