Job description

With a growing reputation and demand, this is an exciting time to join the Research Unit and Church Army’s wider Learning and Development team. Since its inception in 1997, the Research Unit has had the brief to examine contemporary Christian evangelism, mission, and the creation of fresh expressions of Church.

As a Senior Researcher, you will make a substantive contribution to the design and delivery of mixed method research projects. These include externally funded research projects and evaluations for dioceses and national church institutions as well as internal research and consultancy work for Church Army. You will be expected to take initiative in the development of new projects, working with the Research Team leader to help identify, contract, design and deliver these. As a Senior Researcher, you will also play an important role in mentoring more junior colleagues and communicating with the wider church through speaking engagements and publications.

The team works closely together, to live out its Christian ethos and model Church Army values, and the post holder for this role will actively engage in this also. We are looking for someone who will be excited to research what God is doing and how lives are being transformed across Church Army, sharing in our belief in what we do and why we do it.

Please see the job description and our website for more information.

We are recruiting 1.5 posts across two roles within the Research Team and would therefore consider applications from those looking for part-time hours.


*Due to the responsibilities of the role there is an occupational requirement under the Equality Act 2010 that the post holder has an active faith in Jesus, demonstrated by an involvement in a local church and agreement with the vision and values of Church Army.
