Ref: GSe53577.1

Church Army is a fast-growing, dynamic organisation which works predominantly with those on the margins. We are a strong and vibrant community dedicated to serve and we have always sought to show the love of Christ unconditionally to all those who need us.

We are now seeking an exceptional new CEO to lead the Church Army community and drive forward our vision and help us to make an impact where it matters most.

We have been effectively delivering the board’s DARE strategy (Doing, Advocating, Resourcing and Enabling evangelism) and this continues to shape our ambition and our work.

This is no ordinary CEO role and we are looking for an extraordinary leader with robust operational and financial management skills together with the ability to play a key ambassadorial role.

We need a strategic leader who can influence and inspire others both inside and outside the organisation and who can grow our work and impact. They will need to be a natural collaborator and outstanding communicator and have a genuine interest and empathy with our work.

The candidate must be a committed practising Christian.  As Church Army plays a crucial role in delivering mission within the Anglican Church in the UK and Ireland, the successful candidate will have a working knowledge of the Anglican structure and traditions* and either be an Anglican or a member of a denomination in relationship with the Anglican church.*

*There is a genuine occupational requirement that the post holder is a committed and practising Christian. Schedule 9, paragraph 1 of the Equality Act 2010 applies to this post.
