The focus of the role will be to work with the two churches in ensuring the financial sustainability of the mission teams in each place and to fundraise for their building redevelopment projects, in the region of £1-2 Million total.

You should have experience of working in a multi-disciplinary team environment and be motivated and able to work on your own initiative.

We particularly encourage applications from disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, as these groups are currently under-represented.

This role is externally funded by the national Church and is fixed term until 31st December 2024.

Salary:  £25k-£28k pa pro rata, 21 hours per week

Location: Office based in Rotherham, currently home working, with some travel
