We are currently seeking three exceptional individuals to join the Archbishops’ Council of the Church of England. All three members will be expected to have substantial experience as a Trustee and to be able to contribute to the charity in an effective way. You will bring proven experience of governance in a large dispersed organisation and an awareness of strategic development.

One of these appointments will also be invited to act as Chair of the Archbishops’ Council Audit Committee and therefore this member will need to have an understanding of risk management and audit processes.

You will be a confident Christian with a lively faith, a passion for mission and evangelism and an ability to relate faith to life. You will show a clear commitment to the mission of the Church of England and to its spiritual and numerical growth and will be a listening Christian leader who can build consensus and gain respect.

We are committed to building a culturally diverse workforce. As part of this commitment, we welcome applications from people, regardless of their background. Currently women, persons from a UK minority ethnic background and younger people are under-represented on the Council. Those with current experience of parish ministry are also under-represented. Applications from within these groups would therefore be particularly welcomed. This appointment is open to actual communicant members of the Church of England in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.

For an informal confidential discussion about the role please contact our advising consultants Katy Giddens (020 7426 3973) or Emma French (0113 205 6071) will be pleased to take your call.
