Director of Communications

The Methodist Church

Contract:

Permanent

Location:

London and Home Counties

Ref: JN006693

Job Description

Salary in the range £48,000 - £55,000

 

We are seeking an experienced professional to deliver a strategic

communications function for the Methodist Church in Britain. This is

an exciting time in the life of the Church, with a programme of renewal

(‘Reaffirming our Calling’) that has begun and needs to continue gaining

momentum. Communications – through all media – has a key role to

play in this.

 

You may currently be in the private sector or in a not-for-profit, where you

can show a track record of excellence in media and communications.

You must be used to strategic thinking but also very effective at managing

the day to day under pressure and in response to competing demands.

You need to be a team player, attentive to the views of others and

sensitive to issues of equality, diversity and inclusion.

 

You need also to be able to speak for and with the Church. That means

having an understanding of the context for Christian life and mission in

today’s society and of the language of Christian discourse. A theological

background, or detailed knowledge of Methodism, are not essential

qualifications but an ability to grasp what the Church is about and to

speak its language is vital.

 

Closing date for applications:

Noon on Wednesday 31st October 2018

Interviews will be held on 13 November 2018
