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.
In 2016 it was identified that to support consistent safeguarding practice, improve the quality of recording and to effectively manage the tracking of those who posed a safeguarding risk, the Church of England needed to operate using a common casework management system. This came about in response to findings identified in the SCIE independent safeguarding audits of Dioceses, and in preparing for the Independent Inquiry into Institutional Child Sexual Abuse’s (IICSA) investigation into sexual abuse in the Anglican Church.
The Archbishops Council has committed to creating a national safeguarding Casework Management System, which will be adopted by the National Safeguarding Team (NST) and ultimately all dioceses, cathedrals and TEI’s of the Church of England.
To assist NST on this project, there is a requirement for a Business Change Specialist to lead the Church of England on this very exciting new change journey to help adapt a new technology that will modernize case management and introduce much needed process efficiencies.
As a Business Change Specialist, you will play a key role in ensuring that the project’s change initiatives meet its objectives on time and on budget. This role will focus on changes to business processes, systems and technology.
The role will be creating and implementing change management strategies and plans that maximize employee adoption and usage and minimize resistance. The primary responsibility is for ensuring that the new system is properly configured, well-adopted, fully utilised with people gaining and retaining proficiency in using it.
This role will work with many others in the organisation to succeed. This person will act as a coach for senior leaders and executives in helping them fulfil the role of change sponsors. They may also provide direct support and coaching to all levels of managers and supervisors as they help their direct reports through transitions.
The main responsibilities are:
