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 currently engaged in a series of major initiatives to review its culture, structures, and governance at national and regional level under the programme of ‘Emerging Church’. The Governance Review workstream forms part of this body of work and is overseen by the National Church Governance Project Board.
This is an opportunity to provide the National Governance Project Board with the necessary administrative support to ensure that the Governance Review Project is being effectively and efficiently managed and delivered.
As Executive Project Administrator your responsibilities will include day to day diary management, meeting support, as well as administration tasks to help the project progress smoothly. You will maintain the projects shared drive and help keep up to date key project documentation, including the risk register and the project tracker.
You will co-ordinate the delivery of key governance forums, including fringe events at General Synod, Project Board and Reference Group meetings and any project away days. You will also monitor the Governance Review mailbox and ensure responses are provided promptly to those submitting comments.
Key to your success in this role will be your written and verbal communication and organisational skills.
