Historic Churches Support Officer

The Diocese of Sheffield has a unique opportunity for a suitably qualified and experienced individual to undertake an important new role supporting the long-term sustainability of its church buildings for worship and wider use, helping parishes to care for their buildings and sensitively adapt them for modern needs.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate experience of the care and maintenance of historic buildings/churches and ideally have, or be willing to learn, an understanding of the Care of Churches Measure 1991, its related instruments, and Faculty Jurisdiction rules 2013 and 2015.  It is vital that applicants have the technical skills necessary to devise plans to address the priorities identified by quinquennial inspectors. IHBC membership is desirable. In addition experience of successful grant applications, working with volunteers and developing training and support to help them care for listed buildings will be important.
