Job description

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 Research and Statistics Department is part of the Central Services of the Church of England and as such collaborates with all sectors of the national Church bodies to provide statistical information, research, and consultancy.

Its main role is to work with the National Church Institutions (NCIs), dioceses and parishes to collect information and provide the best quality statistics to support growth, ministry, and mission activities. It uses this information together with other data sources, including national census and survey data, to provide reflective analysis to support the work of the NCIs, dioceses and parishes.

The purpose of this post is to support the mission of the Church of England by ensuring that high quality data are collected and appropriately used in decision making at local, regional, and national level.

Do you want an opportunity to use your analytical and numerical skills to solve problems?

Can you understand the needs of customers and communicate your ideas clearly?

We believe that data, analysis and evidence are essential for making good decisions. Our friendly and hard-working team aims to be a centre of knowledge and expertise for the organisation to ensure the best possible use of data, and we're looking for two new Statistical Researchers to join us.

We gather, analyse and report on data, and offer support and advice to a range of people within the Church of England, including volunteers, Bishops and policy makers. We aspire to create and develop tools and techniques to improve the collection, use and accessibility of data.

Can you help us achieve these aims?

Our team is based at Church House, Westminster, London SW1P 3AZ. Currently employees are working remotely due to Covid-19 restrictions.

We welcome applications from people looking for part time or full-time hours. The posts are offered on a fixed term contract expected to last until 31 December 2022.

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 1 December remotely, using Zoom.

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 scheme.
