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 Church’s digital team was established in October 2016 and, over the last four years, has worked with colleagues across the Church to transform the digital presence for the better and reach and engage millions of Christians and people exploring their faith. Major areas of focus include providing resources and materials during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic; continuing development and maintaining the national websites; co-developing major Christian campaigns at Advent, Christmas, Lent and Easter; overseeing a social media and website training programme with thousands of churches; and developing innovative products like the Alexa skill.
The Church has been recognised for its work in this area by winning a large number of national awards.
The Digital Team also works to support the implementation of the Church of England’s Vision and Strategy priorities, seeking to create a younger, more diverse Church.
As Website and Apps Manager, you will be responsible for developing and overseeing our core national websites, primarily the Church of England and Archbishops of Canterbury and York, as well managing our national Apps.
You will work closely with colleagues across the national office in Westminster, Lambeth Palace and Bishopthorpe Palace to deliver the core priorities of the digital team to: grow people’s Christian faith, bring people to the Christian faith and share the common good work of the Church.
You will oversee agencies and the development roadmaps, as the Church of England moves to build on the foundation of its website platform. You will also work as the central contact and advisor for Diocesan colleagues working on web and data projects, and oversee the Church of England, Archbishop of Canterbury and Archbishop of York’s website budget.
We are taking a flexible approach to work, with many colleagues opting for a hybrid approach to their working week, with a mixture of home and office-based working. Further details will be discussed at interview.
The Church of England is for everyone, and we want to reflect the diversity of the community the Church serves across the whole country. Therefore, while of course we welcome all applications from interested and suitably experienced people, we would particularly welcome applicants from UK Minority Ethnic Backgrounds.
We would like to hear from you if you have the ability, motivation and commitment to give to this opportunity.
