We are looking for a priest of at least 6 years in holy orders, who will enjoy being part of our Senior Leadership Team and will help us implement our current direction of travel, embracing our desire for continuous improvement and making it happen. This is an important management role which requires good organisational skills, particularly in the development of new Ministry Areas. It assumes full support of the Diocesan Vision, and a willingness to engage with the finer detail of matters relating to procedures and regulations. We are likely to appoint someone with wide experience and a strength of character which will stand them in good stead when implementing change that some might regard as unwelcome. They will have good people skills, combining both warmth and competence. Familiarity with common IT systems is essential, as is the ability to drive and the use of a car. The role requires someone to hold in creative tension their participation in senior leadership, forming diocesan culture and policies, whilst also expressing a duty of care for, and empathy with the perspectives of parish clergy and laity.
The qualities we will value include
• Christ-centred leader – a person of faith and spiritual depth
• Visionary – oriented to the future, with ability to think strategically
• Encourager – promoting change through encouragement, empathetic and an enabler
• Team-player – loyal to a shared vision but capable of constructive dissent
• Ground-breaker – sees new opportunities, unafraid to try something different, to make mistakes and try again
• Change-maker – someone who makes things happen. A positive advocate for transformation who is capable of implementing and winning support for change
1. To work with the bishop and other senior colleagues to build the life of the churches of the diocese as communities committed to creative worship, passionate discipleship, and transformational mission.
2. To energise Ministry Areas to fulfil their potential.
3. To support the Ministry Areas in developing and exploring new ideas and good practice, encouraging imaginative ideas for growth at all levels.
4. To work closely with the Ministry Area Leaders, Lay Chairs, and Ministry Area Councils as they maintain pastoral care of the people of the Ministry Area. To ensure that all are aware of new developments within the diocese and archdeaconry and support them in implementation.
5. To play a key role in the recruitment and deployment of clergy, making sure that we have the right clergy in the right place, and the right number of clergy, including the support and development of pioneering ministry in each Ministry Area.
6. To support the bishop, the diocese and the Church in Wales in other ways consistent with the goals outlined above.
7. There are also the more traditional roles of the Archdeacon, although the focus of the post should be resolutely oriented towards the goals set out above. Wherever possible, the diocesan team will assist the Archdeacons by seeking to lighten as many of the burdens associated with the duties traditionally assigned to the office of the Archdeacon and set out in the Constitution of the Church in Wales.
