A coordinator for the Season of Intentional Discipleship is being sought to work from the Anglican Communion Office in London, alongside two other new members of staff to support departments working in mission, women, ecumenism, the UN and communications. The three new posts were advertised this afternoon on the ACO’s website.
The new co-ordinator for the Season of Intentional Discipleship will support the Director for Mission to “inspire, challenge and co-ordinate churches in the Anglican Communion to become effectives in training their bishops, priests and laity to become disciples of Christ and adopt Jesus-shaped lives,” the advert says. “This role requires excellent co-ordination and networking skills and a genuine passion for seeing Christians become more effective in their personal lives and in the impact that they have on others.”
An Administration and Research Assistant is being recruited to support directors in the areas of Mission, Women in Church and Society and United Nations representation. The holder of this post will have “responsibility for policy understanding and development, efficient administration and networking across the Anglican Communion,” the advert says. “This role is about policy and practice and will require a very level of interest in global Christian issues together with strong co-ordination skills.”
The third post is an Administration Assistant to support directors responsible for communications and ecumenical affairs, “including responsibility for database management and maintenance, developing and maintaining video and photo libraries and supporting ecumenical dialogue meetings through efficient and effective administration,” according to the advert. “This role will require excellent communication skills, great attention to detail and a genuine interest in the global church.”
The Chief Operating Officer at the Anglican Communion Office, David White, commented: “It is excellent news that we are able to strengthen the support team at the Anglican Communion Office to enable us to better support Provinces and Churches around the Communion.
“These are three exciting roles that should appeal to those with the high quality skills we are looking for and who have a genuine interest in the global Church and its growth. The ACO has a great team and is a great place to work and we look forward to having new colleagues.”
