Are you passionate about empowering the church to build a bridge into the lives of people in the community? Do you want to tackle one of the biggest causes of poverty in the UK?

Consequently we keep our focus on the safety and welfare of children and young people. And we also offer a fun, supportive team environment and rewarding work.

Due to the nature of this role in communicating the beliefs of the Christian faith, there is a Genuine Occupational Requirement (GOR) that the post holder is a Christian. Appointment to the post will be subject to a satisfactory enhanced DBS check.
