Job Description

The Diocese of Guildford covers the western two-thirds of Surrey and a significant area of north-east Hampshire. It also includes one parish in a London borough and one in rural West Sussex. We have 161 parishes and 300 licenced clergy. There are more than 200 clergy and investment houses, 217 Church buildings and many parish owned halls and facilities. Our property portfolio therefore provides an essential asset for our mission and ministry across this area, whilst also supporting multiple community activities, clubs and meetings.

We’re now seeking an experienced Administrator to work within our small but busy Property team.

This is a pivotal role, helping us maintain our property portfolio and processes and ensuring effective management and maintenance of our buildings and land. You will work closely with our Surveyors and our trusted network of suppliers, including plumbers, electricians, building contractors, architects, engineers, and letting agents. You will help ensure we manage our property portfolio within set budgetary constraints and deliver value for money services. 

Ideally with experience in the property or facilities management sector, you’ll be efficient and organised, able to respond to changing priorities and able to offer excellent customer service to our clergy. You will be comfortable liaising with people at all levels, both within the diocese and with external professionals. Most importantly, you will share the missional passion and heart to reach and serve our communities.
