We are seeking to appoint a Resource Manager, to enable the church to fulfil its mission and ministry by the effective management of finances, through good governance and by the efficient use of its property assets. The role is paid at up to £18 per hour (depending on skills and experience), plus 8% pension, for 20-25 hours per week (afternoons, plus two Monday evenings per month).
St Mary's is a large and well-organised Church of England parish church and a registered charity. The church is here to serve God in worship, care for people, encourage discipleship, seek the Kingdom of Heaven (in local social action and mission partnerships) and tell the Christian story in faithful witness. Our back-office management is vital in supporting this work effectively.
The Resource Manager will work in the church office in the afternoons (Monday to Friday) to carry out financial administration, and to maintain and develop management systems which enable the charity’s treasurer and trustees to have good financial oversight. The Resource Manager will also undertake the responsibilities of PCC Secretary, including attending and clerking meetings, preparing agendas and ensuring good governance within church and charity rules. Finally, the Resource Manager will enable the church to make the most of its small property assets and will contribute to the general running of the church office.
The successful candidate will have proven ability in these main areas of responsibility. He/she will be personally organised and able to express themselves effectively in concise, accurate writing. He/she will have good interpersonal skills and will be confident in a computerised working environment. Experience of financial administration and governance in a charity or church setting is desirable but not essential.
