Northern Ireland associate


For the graduate scheme we have designed a training programme incorporating weekly content from a range of contributors. This will include theological input, understanding our cultural context, leadership, communications, personal development and much more. You will report to a line manager who will oversee and manage your workload, and you will have opportunities to develop mentoring-style relationships. There will be interaction with the other graduates on the scheme as well as the wider staff team.

The main training component will be delivered for two hours on a Tuesday afternoon which must be working time for each of the posts. Other training will be delivered on an ad hoc basis.

Successful applicants will also attend and participate in regular prayer gatherings and engage in team-wide worship.

Candidates will be passionate about serving the wider church in Northern Ireland and/or interested in church engagement in politics, the media and wider public life.
