PA to the Director and Administrative Assistant
The Church of England
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.
This post gives an excellent opportunity to be involved in setting up an new initiative in a small, friendly, busy office, in unusual and pleasant surroundings. The staff members at Lambeth Palace work as a small and close-knit team and support each other at busy periods with flexibility and good humour.
The Centre for Cultural Witness (CCW) is an exciting new venture, based at Lambeth, yet working in partnership with university theology faculties, other denominations and partners, to share and re-tell the culture-shaping power of the Christian gospel in public.
As PA to the Director and Administrative Assistant you will support and enable the Director in his work, and provide administrative assistance for the various activities of the Centre as required.
This post is offered on a fixed term contract initially for 3 years (subject to review and further funding).
Interviews will be held on Friday 22nd July 2022.
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.
A comprehensive and supportive induction programme will be put in place to ensure that you have all the information, access and contacts you require to learn quickly and excel in this role.
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.
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.
