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 of England is the largest single provider of education in England with one million students attending 4,700 Church of England schools. The Church of England Education Office brings together the educational work of Archbishops’ Council (including children & young people, schools, further and higher education) with the National Society and the Church of England Foundation for Educational Leadership and is responsible for education, advancing the breadth of work across 12,600 parishes, diocesan boards of education, schools, colleges and 11 Anglican foundation universities, to equip a new generation of young people to shape society and contribute meaningfully to today’s increasingly complex and globalised world.
This is a key opportunity to provide executive support to the Chief Education Officer and Executive Director of Education in their strategic leadership of the Church of England Education Office team, and their engagement with the wider education sector at a senior level.
Your role will be interesting and varied, including opportunities to support strategic meetings, assist with major stakeholder events, manage diaries and logistical planning and provide a range of essential support to a busy and complex team.
We would like to hear from you if you are keen to join our Education Office team, have strong organisational and communication skills, a proactive and professional approach together with the skills and abilities below.
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.

Interviews will be held on the 29 June 2022.
In return we offer a unique environment with opportunities for continuous learning, generous annual leave for work life balance, season ticket loans and a range of benefits including discounted entry to attractions and what we feel is a market leading package when it comes to our pension scheme.
