The Diocese is seeking an experienced HR professional with vision, great organisational skills and a passion for making a difference.

This will be a high-level comprehensive, efficient and professional HR service to managers, staff and clergy in the Diocese.  The HR Manager will take ownership of the day to day running of the HR function for the organisations and equip and empower managers to be confident and competent practitioners.

Starting salary – FTE £40,400 (£20,200 – £24,240 dependent on hours of work as negotiated)
