Recruitment Begins

Recruitment is now in full swing for the positions required to execute the Activity Programme that complements the Renovation Programme.

In total, there are six roles, with two already filled. The part-time administrator role has been divided into a job share arrangement, with one person handling marketing and communication, and the other managing finance and administration. Additionally, an evaluation consultant will oversee the project's outcomes as outlined with The National Lottery Heritage Fund. We are thrilled to welcome these three new team members aboard.

The four remaining roles will see candidates being interviewed over the next few months.

We are seeking a full-time Heritage Engagement Officer to be the next addition to our team. The application deadline is 29th July. We are in search of a dynamic and imaginative individual with experience in the heritage sector to assist in executing the project's activity component. This individual will collaborate with us to create, coordinate, and oversee a variety of heritage activities within the church and surrounding community. They will aid us in leveraging our rich heritage to connect with new audiences, boost engagement, generate revenue, and ensure the long-term sustainability of our Grade I listed medieval church.

Another upcoming role is the Volunteer and Training Coordinator (part-time).
The application deadline for this position is August 12th. We are seeking a dynamic and creative individual with expertise in volunteer management and training coordination to join our team. Responsibilities include expanding our volunteer base and providing diverse individuals with opportunities to engage in activities at St. Mary's. The role involves leading volunteers and ensuring they receive adequate and relevant training. Learn more about this opportunity here.

In the autumn we will be recruiting a Historian and an Ecologist. These are consultancy roles and the closing date for both roles is 29th September.

The Historian, (including archaeologists, heritage librarians, museologists, archivists, teachers, and heritage architects), will be offered a paid two-year residency to explore the history of St Mary’s Stebbing and to engage our volunteers and community with the heritage of the site. The history of the site needs further research, but information is available from a number of sources. St Mary’s and the PCC will support access to these works where possible. The Historian in Residence will undertake research into the history of St Mary’s; this could include existing collections held by the church, a related historic event or topic or respond to an identified gap in the existing body of historical work. Find out more here.

The Ecologist will be offered a paid two-year residency to explore the natural environment of St Mary’s Stebbing and to engage our volunteers and community with the biodiversity and ecosystems in and around the site. This person will provide ecological expertise, advice and support to the project team and the community. Find out more on this role and its requirements here.
