Permanent, Full-time
Job description

We are looking for a really capable team member, who will bring a range of skills, experience and drive to our small communications team – with a passion for news, stories and messages, a customer-focused outlook, and who is brimming with ideas for delivering stand-out digital communications, and supporting others to do so. It is an exciting role in an area of work where no two days are ever the same.

The successful candidate will play a key operational role in implementing the Diocese of Guildford’s Communications strategy, carrying out a wide variety of tasks and supporting the wider Diocesan strategy: ‘Transforming Church; Transforming Lives’. They will also provide the day-to-day running and management of the Diocese of Guildford’s website, social media and digital platforms, including generating, editing and uploading content whilst enhancing the digital presence and outreach. And lastly, they will provide critical communications guidance, training, digital advice and support to the parishes, chaplaincies and schools in support of their work in their parishes and across the Diocese.

This is an exciting time to join our diocese and our relatively new Communications Team. The way people engage and interact with church and faith has changed radically since March 2020 and a global pandemic – the first lockdown saw a rapid growth in digital awareness, use and reach for the Church of England and people exploring faith in a time of National crisis. Our online audiences are now bigger than our in-person congregations and our ability to use technology and go where our audiences are, has shown rapid and real improvements.

The full job description, person specification, further details about the diocese and information on how to apply for the role can be found in the application pack attached.
