Young People's Worker & School Chaplain

CYM Ipswich (Christian Youth Ministries)

This role is new to our team but comes at a critical moment in the history of the charity. We are in the process of moving our office base to a new location, where we will offer and provide many different activities and opportunities for children and young people. This will also be a space for School Chaplains to bring staff and students for visits.

This particular post will sit within our 'School Chaplaincy' team but will be unique. If successful, you will work with, and for, a local church and your working hours will also include delivering CYM Chaplaincy into the local Primary School. CYM will be the employer but the work will take place in the local church, community and school.

The successful applicant will be implementing and developing this role in partnership with the church leadership team and the pastoral management team within the school.

Please view the job description and person specification below and then make direct contact to request a detailed job pack and application form. For an informal discussion about the role please contact our Director, Simon, via the contact details below.
