Chaplain

Closing date for application: 06/04/2021 9:00am

Vacancy Type: Full-Time

Christ’s Hospital is the UK’s leading charitable School and largest bursary charity. We are seeking to appoint an outstanding Chaplain to work with our Senior Chaplain and Graduate Assistant Chaplain, at an exciting stage in the development of our mission. The ideal start date is September 2021, but we will consider waiting until January 2022 in order to appoint the right candidate.

This is a wonderful opportunity for an ordained Anglican priest to play a significant part in developing the Chaplaincy provision in a community which has Christian principles at its very heart and is at the cutting edge of enabling social mobility through education.

The Chaplain will be central in the advancement of two new priorities: extending pastoral care and extending outreach. In addition, the successful candidate will play a full part in the life of the School, including Cathedral standard worship, spiritual nurture, pastoral support and co-curricular activities.

We are eager to hear from candidates from a variety of backgrounds, so having no previous experience in school chaplaincy should not be a barrier to application; a desire to acquire the skills to work effectively in this setting is essential. This position would suit those already involved in school chaplaincy looking to take a next step and parish or other sector clergy wishing to make a move into education.

For an informal conversation about this post, please contact the Senior Chaplain, The Reverend Craig Huxley-Jones, on 01403 246641.

Applications should be received by 9am on Tuesday 6th April 2021

Interviews will take place week commencing Monday 12th April 2021
