Appointment of Director of Chaplaincy and Spirituality

MHA is a charity providing care, accommodation and support services for older people throughout Britain. MHA is one of the most well respected care providers in the sector and amongst the largest charities in Britain, providing services to older people for almost 75 years. With income of over £200m per year, we provide residential care, retirement communities and community schemes to over 17,000 older people. We work with over 7,000 dedicated staff, enhanced by the commitment of 5,500 volunteers. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for older people, inspired by Christian concern.

After 15 years of service, our Director of Chaplaincy and Spirituality will be returning to local ministry. MHA is now seeking to appoint someone to continue to develop this distinctive aspect of what MHA does on spiritual wellbeing of older people. As a full member of the Leadership Team, this person will be part of the team leading the whole organisation and be responsible for realising MHA's potential for thought leadership on spirituality and faith in later life. The successful candidate will bring an understanding of a broad spectrum of spiritual needs, especially those of older people, and wide, relevant pastoral care experience to lead a network of chaplains. They will have a track record of relevant leadership experience, including successfully managing large numbers of volunteers as well as outstanding communication skills and an ability to reflect creatively on spiritual matters. Candidates could be ordained or lay and from a Methodist or other Christian denomination background. An occupational requirement exists for the post-holder to be a practising Christian in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.
