Diocese of Wellington - Volunteer Opportunity: Discernment Programme Administrator, Anglican Movement

Diocese of Wellington - Volunteer Opportunity: Discernment Programme Administrator, Anglican Movement

Do you love using good administration to support and care for others? An important part of our movement involves identifying the future leaders of God’s church in our Diocese, and we are so grateful to God that we have an increasing number of people feeling called to explore discernment for ordination. The team that undertakes this work needs a superstar administrator to ensure that our discernment systems are robust and caring. In summary, this voluntary position would involve:

  • connecting regularly with the Diocesan Director of Ordinands (DDO), the Rev John Hughes, to track the discernment process
  • sending out, tracking and compiling application paperwork
  • organising and receiving reports of candidates’ interviews, references and psychological assessments
  • coordinating and attending the annual residential discernment days/weekends (usually two a year) for candidates and assessors.

This position can largely be worked remotely, with the exception of the discernment weekends, for which travel and other expenses can be reimbursed. A laptop is also available for the role. Hours per week across the year average around five, although the workload increases prior to and during discernment weekends.

Key to this role is:

  • experience in administrative support, with skills in MS Word and Excel
  • strong organisational ability, particularly with a fluctuating workload
  • high values in friendly and timely communication
  • confidentiality
  • some experience in event organisation is useful.

This is a key developmental work area for our movement, and if this is something that you are interested in finding out more about, please contact Ella Brown at ella@anglicanmovement.nz.
