Pastoral Ministry Advisor
The Northampton Roman Catholic Diocese serves the Catholic community in Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and the part of Berkshire which lies to the north of the river Thames (Slough).
We are currently seeking to appoint a Pastoral Ministry Advisor to undertake a thorough review of the chaplaincy provision across the diocese and create and implement a diocesan wide strategy for adult formation.
The successful candidate will facilitate a variety of forms of adult formation for the development of our communities and for the new forms of pastoral ministry. Initially this would pay particular attention to the provision of chaplaincy in institutions such as hospitals, prisons and universities across the diocese, but would subsequently develop in a variety of appropriate ways.
A key aspect of the role is working in collaboration with clergy, lay people, other employees and volunteers. So the ability to develop good relationships and relate to and communicate with a wide variety of people, are essential qualities.
Applicants must be a committed practicing Catholic with education to degree level or equivalent in Religious Studies or Theology. You must have good teaching and organisational skills with the ability to collaborate and facilitate.
Experience of teaching and formation at diocesan level would be advantageous.
The person in this role would need to be able to travel throughout the Diocese and the nature of the work means that some evening and weekend work will be required.
The client requests no contact from agencies or media sales.
