About us

The Diocese of Portsmouth comprises 90 parishes across Hampshire, Dorset, Berkshire (except Slough), South Oxfordshire, the Isle of Wight and the Channel Islands. Formed 19th May 1882 by the division of the Diocese of Southwark, the Diocese of Portsmouth has a presence in every community and can offer ministry and mission to all who come to us, working towards the Bishop’s vision of Bringing people closer to Jesus Christ through his church.

Principal duties and responsibilities

Due to some changes within our team structure we are looking for a high-calibre candidate with experience of working in a regulated sector as part of a governance and compliance function, to join our small team as our Governance and Office manager. You may have been a company secretary, governance manager board administrator or similar in a busy organisation with a dispersed workforce and multiple parishes which are decision making bodies under the charity.

You will have a degree and ideally ICSA qualification or similar and project management experience and you will have an understanding and commitment to the mission and values of the Catholic Church.

You will support the Chief Operating Officer and senior leadership in ensuring the smooth governance of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Portsmouth charity, and you will work closely with the main committees involved in the governance and allocation of resources for the Charity, this includes the Trustee Board and Trust Subcommittees. You will be responsible for the oversight of the office function and be the Data Protection Manager for the organisation.

You will work with the Senior Team to organise events for external stakeholders and supporters of the charity, and conferences and team days for the charity’s staff.

You will need strong organisational and analytical skills for your day-to-day work, displaying meticulous attention to detail and a high level of efficiency.  You will exhibit exceptional diplomacy and tact, and a high level of professionalism.
