Youth Ministry Co-ordinator

 Salary £30,000 - £33,000 per annum plus benefits

 

 A rare opportunity has occurred to take youth ministry in the Diocese of Northampton into its next phase of development. A creative leader is sought to build on an already strong ministry, serving the young people of our local church. The Diocese of Northampton places youth as a key priority, and has developed over the years a well-regarded youth ministry service (NYMO). The successful candidate will be joining an extremely supportive diocese, which is excited to hear their ideas on the future of this vital ministry.

  

Working with the support of a Director of Youth Ministry, the Youth Ministry Coordinator will aim to enrich and support the fantastic ministry already undertaken in many parishes and schools. Contributing to the creative development of the youth ministry office will be a challenging and fulfilling part of an experienced youth ministers journey.

 

This developing role requires confidence and openness to seek God’s will for the young people of our diocesan family. Through meeting and listening to the young people, their parish mentors, clergy and family, you will provide support that meets their needs and encourages the outcomes of the SYNOD in 2018.

 

While the Director of Youth Ministry will take ultimate responsibility for the strategy, staff management and budget, the Youth Ministry Coordinator will be responsible for:

·         Day to day leadership of office, staff and programs. Including distribution of agreed budget, implementation of strategy and communications.

·         Leading team in events and local support activities.

·         Building on a network of volunteers and staff to fulfil ideas and commitments. 

·         Creating fresh ways of meeting the needs of parishes and secondary schools.

·         Modelling modern youth ministry techniques and offering regular training and development opportunities.

·         Regular communication, both written and verbal, with the Director of Youth Ministry. 

 

This role is a senior role, therefore experience in youth ministry and leadership is desirable. Above all we are looking for the right character to grow this precious diocesan asset to the next level.

 

Applicants are required to be a practising Catholic in good standing with the Catholic Church, and have a full driving licence and own vehicle. This role is also subject to a DBS check.

 

We will reward commitment to our diocese and the role, with regular development opportunities as agreed with the Director of Youth Ministry and in line with the senior nature of the role.

 

We work to a 35-hour week, which will include some evening and weekend work.

 

Support with relocation can be provided, the detail of which would depend on the needs of the candidate.

 

Full details of the role can be found in the Job Profile.  Should you be interested in applying you can do so by completing the application form, and returning it along with a cover letter and your CV to hr@northamptondiocese.com or by post to:
