Leeds Minster
Director of Operations and Development
Salary: £42,500 per annum

The position offers an exciting opportunity to join the Parish as it continues a wholesale review and realignment of its operations in order to achieve stability, to meet current legislation and professional standards and good practice and to develop effective governance. At the same time the PCC is looking to the future, considering how the parish and the resources we steward might better serve the City, Episcopal Area and Diocese of which we are a part. It is clear that significant change and development is needed in terms of the prevailing culture, as well as in our administration and the care and use of our buildings. There is much work to do and we are searching for a person of vision with an eye for detail.This is a new post and is offered on a two year fixed term contract. While it is hoped that funding will be secured to enable the post to be extended beyond this time period, this cannot be guaranteed. The start date is flexible to suit the needs of both the parish and the successful applicant, though it is hoped that a person will be in post by early summer 2017.

The post is full time but the nature of the post lends itself to flexible working – both at home and in the parish.
