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 Cathedral and Church Buildings Division (CCB) supports the conservation and development of the Church of England’s cathedrals and church buildings and their contents and churchyards for worship, mission and community engagement. The division provides support for the statutory bodies, the Church Buildings Council and the Statutory Advisory Committee on Closing Churches and the Cathedral Fabric Commission for England, and works increasingly closely with other divisions within the NCIs.

The latter includes delivering the Net Zero Carbon Demonstrator Project.
You will also support the policy priorities of the Division, working with the senior team to identify relevant areas for policy work and support their implementation at national and regional levels.
This is a part time post working 28 Hours per week. The full time salary of £44,359 will be prorated for the hours worked giving a prorated salary of £35,487 per year.
