University Chaplaincy Coordinator

Closing Date: 05/05/2024

The Chaplaincy Co-ordinator will often be the only team member available in the Chaplaincy and therefore is the 'face' of the Chaplaincy and responsible for dealing with a full and challenging range of issues: distressed students, grieving parents, concerned tutors etc. Because of this, the post requires independent working and the post holder will need to be able to demonstrate initiative to direct students to Chaplains, wider pastoral support and other areas of support on campus, as appropriate.

A large proportion of the role is administrative and project management; therefore, the post holder needs the ability to organise a busy, heavy workload, deal with various tasks simultaneously, and juggle competing priorities.

Most Chaplains are at the University only part of the time, so liaison needs to be carefully managed and coordinated. In addition, the decision-making structures are flat/ collegial, which means the Coordinator needs to ensure that mechanisms are in place for input into decisions from all and to understand when delegated authority can be applied. The structure necessitates that the Coordinator be highly autonomous and proactive.
