If you’re a talented and experienced finance professional looking for a new challenge in an organisation that is unique in Cornwall then this role may be for you.

Did you see the word ‘Diocese’ and think that this role isn’t for you? If so, do think again. Our staff come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some of our jobs require the jobholder to be a practising Christian, but not all, and this role doesn’t require you to be. What’s important is that your values align with ours, and you want to work for an organisation that makes a real difference to communities and people’s lives.

We are looking to appoint a Finance Manager who can apply their skills and experience to the variety of work that this role entails. It is a key, busy, fast paced and wide-ranging role, responsible for all aspects of the day to day accounting, and part of a small finance team.

You will combine a strong track record in successful financial management with a high attention to detail and excellent communication and time management skills. Efficient, timely and accurate processing and analysis is key, along with using your own initiative. You will also have a proven ability to work with a diverse range of stakeholders, which includes trustees, bishops, staff, vicars, auditors and volunteers in the 214 parishes across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

At the Diocese of Truro we really value work-life balance and employee wellbeing and are committed to supporting your development. We offer additional benefits such as flexible working, a range of wellbeing activities and the Church of England Pension Scheme with 9-15% employer contributions. More information on this is here.
