Giving Ministry Adviser

Hours: 30 hours per week*

Salary: £20,902 - £22,002 per annum (£26,128 - £27,503 per annum FTE)

As a result of a generous investment from the National Church, the Diocese of Newcastle is seeking to appoint a Giving Ministry Adviser to develop the work of our Generous Giving Team.

As part of an ambitious and enthusiastic team, you will work with clergy and other church ministers, as well as lay people in local churches and church councils. You will help them grow in their understanding of the theology of giving; from our financial giving, to our giving of time and skills, and our generosity in words and deeds.

By developing a portfolio of training and development programmes and facilitating group work, you will encourage, inspire and equip church leaders to enable others within their communities on the understanding and outworking of Christian giving.

You will have experience of Christian giving, either in a parish (or equivalent) environment or within a Christian charity. You will also be an effective communicator and facilitator with an ability to build relationships and work collaboratively.

This role benefits from support from the National Giving Team, in particular the National Giving Ministry Adviser.

This post will be based at Church House, St John’s Terrace, Percy Main, North Shields NE29 6HS but there is flexibility for some home working. The expectation is that the post holder will also be travelling within the Diocese to meet with parishes during the course of their working week.

A Genuine Occupational Requirement exists for the post holder to be a practising Christian.
