PA to the Vicar of St Mary’s and Christ Church Hendon (part time)
The Parish of St Mary and Christ Church, Hendon is a Church of England (Anglican) parish in the Diocese of London (population approx 22,000 people). The Parish is in a religiously and culturally diverse area of North London and is made up of two churches, committed to witness and service in our community in love and prayer. This is a new post and the successful candidate will have the opportunity to have a positive effect on the running and organisation of the parish, supporting the Vicar, and those working with her, in our ministry.
The Parish is looking for a skilled and enthusiastic PA to come and join our Parish team on a part-time basis, working in the parish office at St Mary’s, to aid the smooth running of the administration of church, church hall, and office and supporting the Vicar in overseeing the day-to-day enquiries of the Parish. Full details available online.
The purpose of the role is to facilitate the day-to-day administrative operations of the church e.g. ordering of supplies and equipment, producing pew sheets/service sheets, working closely with Officers of the church. As a faith-based organisation and place of Christian worship, our beliefs are central to everything we do. The post-holder will be expected to respect these beliefs and work actively to support our ministry and vision.
As well as providing effective administration within the church, the post-holder will have a public facing profile with the wider community on behalf of the Vicar, from answering emails and the phone to dealing with enquiries. This position requires professionalism and the ability to work in a small team where multi-tasking, sound decision making, self-motivation and discretion are essential. Equally the post-holder will need to be competent in communication, interpersonal and IT skills. An enhanced DBS disclosure will be required.
The Diocese of London is committed to creating and sustaining a diverse and inclusive workforce which represents our context and wider community. We are aware that those of Global Majority Heritage/United Kingdom Minority Ethnic (GMH/UKME), women, and disabled people are currently under-represented among our clergy and workforce, and we particularly encourage applications from those with the relevant skills and experience that will increase this representation.
