Historic Churches Support Officer
Salary - £23,998 - £26,560 pa (£11,999 - £13,280 pa pro rata); 17.5 hours per week
The Diocese has a unique opportunity for a suitably qualified individual to undertake this new and exciting role, primarily, but not exclusively, in the support of the historic churches of the Diocese. The Diocese has over 200 unique church buildings. One third of these are listed Grade I or II* and encompass the full range of ecclesiastical architecture from Anglo-Saxon times to the Liturgical Movement of the twentieth century.
The Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC) is the lead body in the diocese for advice on the care and development of church buildings; providing advice to parishes and Archdeacons and the Diocesan Chancellor. Reporting to the Secretary to the DAC, the successful applicant for this role will pro-actively engage with parishes to make certain all congregations understand, maintain and ensure their buildings are sustainable and valued assets that can be used by the community.
Candidates must understand what is required for long term, high level repairs and maintenance of historic buildings/churches and ideally have understanding of the Care of Churches Measure 1991, its related instruments, and Faculty Jurisdiction rules 2013 and 2015 or be willing to learn. It is vital that applicants have the technical skills necessary to devise a plan to address the priorities identified by surveyors and architects. In addition experience of successful grant applications, working with volunteers and developing training and support to help them care for listed buildings is important.
