We are striving to be a people who are “Living Christ’s Story”. We want to be a simpler, bolder, humbler church, which in its diversity reflects the communities it serves.

We are investing very significantly in two key programmes to reach people, make disciples and launch new worshipping communities among two overlapping demographics.

Mustard Seed - Growing Disciples in Places where Life is Tough

Multiply – Growing Disciples among those in the their 20s, 30s and 40s

We seek an administrator for around a year to cover maternity leave. You will work across these two key programmes, providing administrative support and office management to the Mustard Seed and Multiply teams who are geographically dispersed across the Diocese.

The role is available 24.5 hours per week, with some flexibility in the work pattern. In normal circumstances, the post is based at our diocesan office at Clifton Moor in York, with options to work flexibly with regular homeworking.

With the support of our Executive Assistant, you will work closely on a day-to-day basis with those delivering these two programmes.

Tasks include:

  • Acting as a point of contact
  • Diary planning
  • Secretarial support for governance meetings
  • Collecting data for reporting purposes

You will be educated to A-level or equivalent standard and have previous experience of being responsible for administrative functions. You will be self-motivated and highly organised, adept at being a key team player, even when working remotely. You will have a professional manner, a flexible approach, and be confident in dealing with sensitive and confidential matters. You will have empathy with the Christian character of our organisation.
