Job description


The National Church Institutions comprises a wide variety of teams, professions and functions that support the mission and ministries of the Church of England in its vision to be a church, centred on Jesus Christ, for the whole nation - a church that is simpler, humbler, bolder.
We Include. You Belong.
Our Belonging and Inclusion Strategy aims 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.
Living out our values in all that we do, we:
  • Strive for Excellence
  • Show Compassion
  • Respect others
  • Collaborate
  • Act with Integrity
We believe our commitment to belonging and inclusion fuels our progress and drives us forward. The NCIs are a safe, inclusive workplace for people of all backgrounds and walks of life. We welcome applications from people of all faiths and of no faith. We want to encourage applications from a diverse group of people who share our values. Even if you have never thought about working for us before, if you have the skills and experience we're looking for then we would like to hear from you.
About the Department
The Theology team is part of Faith and Public Life which leads the church's national work on ethics, public policy and relationships beyond the Church of England, including with government and Parliament, civil society, other Christian churches and other faiths. The Theology team works alongside the Parliamentary and Public Policy teams, teams covering Anglican Communion affairs, Ecumenical relations and Inter-religious affairs, and a number of project teams working on issues as diverse disability and social impact investment. There is a strong collaborative working culture across the whole team. The whole department is supported by an administrative team each of whom specialises in supporting one or two areas of the department's work while supporting one another with the overall flow of work.
What you'll be doing
The post-holder will provide administrative support for the Theology Team within Faith and Public Life - a sub-team comprising the National Theological Adviser, the National Worship and Liturgical Adviser and a Theology Officer who, together, support the church, the bishops and the archbishops in their engagement with a wide range of theological issues.
You will provide high quality Executive Assistant support to the Faith and Public Life team, specialising in administrative support to the Theology team, and undertaking other administrative roles from time to time.
Main duties and responsibilities

  • Contributing to researching, drafting and editing material.
  • Overseeing and coordinating all planning and preparation for meetings of the Faith and Order Commission and associated groups.

  • Taking lead where appropriate and assisting with general administrative tasks within the team as required and helping to provide cover for colleagues when needed.
  • Undertaking such other work as may reasonably be required.
All staff working at Lambeth Palace share responsibility to promote and maintain a strong safeguarding culture with regard to children and vulnerable adults, including identifying the key actions they should take given their role and responsibilities.
