Coleg Cambria is looking to appoint an Anglican Lay Chaplain to provide a chaplaincy to cover all our sites in North East Wales. The Diocese of St Asaph and the Wrexham Parochial Education Foundation work in partnership with the college to support this role.
Coleg Cambria is one of the UK’s largest colleges employing more than 1450 staff in over five campuses, all conveniently located in North East Wales, offering easy accessibility from within North Wales, Shropshire, Wirral, Merseyside and Cheshire.
With an exciting and compelling vision for chaplaincy, you will work with and lead a chaplaincy team which is both ecumenical and multi-faith. Key elements will be; maintaining key partnerships and links with the different communities, cultures and faiths and maintaining and adding to a team of volunteers, ordained and lay, to deliver inclusive support services to meet the needs of learners and staff.
To be considered for this post, you will have experience of working in a faith community. You will hold an Ordained Anglican Priest qualification (or an alternative relevant qualification in a faith-based discipline) or have a relevant teaching, youth work or education related qualification. An effective communicator with people of all ages, you will have resilience, energy and drive to motivate, stimulate and engage others, and be open minded with strong empathy, emotional intelligence and a sense of humour.
We’re looking for an individual who has experience of organising and leading activities and who can develop effective relationships and partnerships with other organisations, teams and individuals of all faiths or none. You’ll need to be flexible to travel to all College sites as required and be enthusiastic and willing to take and lead groups in out of College activities, which may well be outside College hours.
The ability to speak fluent Welsh is highly desirable.
This post is subject to an occupational requirement that the successful candidate be a communicant member of the Church in Wales or a Church in communion with it under Part 1 of Schedule 9 to the Equality Act 2010.
