Executive Administrator 

Maternity Leave Cover 

When there is a lot going on, it’s vital to have people looking after the details, keeping things moving forward, making sure that the essentials are taken care of and that there is good communication with those who need to know. We are looking for a highly organised individual to work closely with our two pastors and the church leadership team to support and facilitate the day-to-day running of the church while our executive administrator is on maternity leave.

As a growing church family with fresh vision, we have been fostering a culture where church is family, where people can grow and where we release the whole church in mission and ministry. The last couple of years have been an exciting time as we have taken on and developed a number of exciting ministry opportunities, encouraging church members to engage in these ministries and grow in their gifting.

Essential to the ministry activity is a solid administrative function ensuring the efficient running of the church from day to day. The Executive Administrator will play a key and pivotal role in this.

You will work closely with the two pastors, providing essential administrative support to them in their leadership role. You will be proactive, able to think ahead and will demonstrate good attention to detail.

You will manage much of the day-to-day operations of the church - from the practical running of the building (e.g. utilities, insurance, line management of the cleaners) to organising meetings and events, including coordinating the various teams involved in Sunday services. Together with the Media & Comms Manager you will manage the church diary and use of the facilities.

You will be a key contact for church leaders and members and will be approachable and professional whether relating to church members or to visitors. You will understand the need for good communication and will be proficient in keeping stakeholders appropriately informed.

If you love to organise things, to support others in their role, if you relate well with people, if you enjoy work that is often unseen but absolutely essential, this could be the role for you.

As important as your administrative capabilities are to being able to fulfil this role and all that it can become, we want the person filling this role to be a passionate follower of Jesus who lives the values we publish and loves the family of God that they will become part of. You will be part of a supportive and dynamic team who are passionate about the Kingdom of God and who look to spur one another on.
