St Ebbe’s Church is seeking an enthusiastic individual to assist the Senior Administrator to provide exceptional administration. This is an ideal early-career opportunity for someone with excellent organisational skills to gain experience in a wide variety of administrative tasks in a supportive training environment, or for someone who wishes to develop their administration skills within a church environment.

St Ebbe’s is a busy church, with a wide range of activities, particularly during term-time, and a central staff team of about 30 people including ministry apprentices.

You will be a highly-organised, practical and detail-oriented person who is quick to learn and can keep track of a diverse range of activities. You will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and will be able to work independently with minimal supervision as well as part of a small team. You will be competent in using office IT systems and using email, standard Microsoft Office products and other office equipment. You will be a committed evangelical Christian and your belief will inform all aspects of the performance of your role.

This is a full-time permanent post (a job share arrangement could be considered). Ideally, the person appointed would be able to start as soon as possible.

Further information about the role and the skills and experience required is given in the job description. If you would like to apply, please use the application form.
