Role

We are seeking a motivated individual to cover a period of maternity leave, working within the Faith Impact Forum as a key player in the delivery of the Faith Impact Forum’s Strategy. You will play an active part in the development of effective working relationships with presbyteries and congregations with a particular focus on global issues.

An able communicator with well-developed interpersonal and influencing skills, you will seek to engage and support congregations in their involvement with partners, projects, twinnings, and world church issues. An expectation of the role is that you will travel widely throughout Scotland – virtually and in person as and when possible.

With first-class organisational skills and the ability to work to tight deadlines, you will organise conferences, workshops and other events and work collaboratively with other areas of the Church on projects, as required.

A knowledge and understanding of the congregational life of the Church of Scotland and of the world church and international mission issues will be required.
