Mansfield College seeks to appoint a College Chaplain to help support our very diverse student body. This post is offered on a permanent basis,
50% fte (18.25hrs per week) with a salary of £15,471 per annum. Flexibility would be considered for those who currently hold another part time post. Applicants above the EJRA may also be considered on a 3-year fixed-term basis.
Mansfield’s history is as a non-conformist college in the Reformed tradition, which the current statutes still reflect; however, the College is open to applicants of all mainstream Christian traditions. The Chaplain is responsible to the Principal, who is head of the College, for the conduct and oversight of services in the Chapel.
Mansfield Chapel is one of the most outstanding examples of the
work of the architect Basil Champneys, and in accordance with the
development of the College, is now a multi-use space which includes dining, religious services, and musical events. Chapel services take place every Wednesday evening in term time.
The Chaplain also plays an important role in the pastoral and welfare provision for all members of the College, students and staff. The College is keen to ensure that its students, both undergraduate and graduate, are well-supported.
Your duties will include conducting regular services, preaching at
College services and organizing visiting preachers. You will oversee the diary of the Chapel and its administration, work closely with the
Director of Music as required and contribute regularly to the work of the welfare team, supporting all members of the College community.
You will be a graduate who is ordained in a mainstream Christian
tradition (strong applications from lay leaders/laity may also be considered),
have experience and skill to organise and conduct services and
demonstrable aptitude to provide pastoral support with discretion.
