Successful applicants are likely to have experience in a professional administrative role of some sort, have an open communication manner and will need to be IT literate as much of the role is IT based.

Although there is no requirement for successful candidates to be practicing Christians, there is a requirement for candidates to declare that are supportive of the Diocese of Rochester’s Ethos Statement.

The ethos of the Diocese of Rochester, which is based on the doctrine and practice of the Church of England is the motivation for all our work. It is to work together to extend the Kingdom of God on earth by living out a lifestyle of love, truth, justice, mercy and forgiveness, according to his teaching. We are inspired by the message, life and example of Jesus through which God’s unconditional love for all people is expressed. Our ethos is given life through our relationships. The way we work together and behave with one another, and those we seek to serve, demonstrates and authenticates our ethos. It is through these relationships with each other and those whom we seek to serve, that we practise our ethos. Our ethos or motivation, and therefore our relationships, are rooted in our faith in Jesus Christ and in his love, which compels us to serve others. This faith directs and influences our internal relationships as well as our work with those who the diocese is seeking to serve. Our activities are an outworking of our faith. The link between who we are and what we do cannot be broken.
