The workload may vary considerably from week to week and the applicant needs to fully appreciate the need for flexibility.  One factor determining hours is the church calendar, e.g.  around Easter and Advent and the Annual Parochial Meeting (April/May) workloads are generally heavier.

The post requires the ability to work alone and to take initiative.  The successful applicant will need good IT skills to maintain online calendars, to design and format documents/posters for print and social media and maintain websites.  The individual will need to take initiative in ensuring events/services are prepared for in good time and well publicised. The church uses Eventbrite for some events. They will be responsible for maintaining good communication across the Benefice particularly between churchwardens and PCCs.
