The Evangelical Alliance is launching a new graduate scheme, building on the success of previous internship programmes. We realise this is a difficult season for many seeking employment. It is also a major time of transition for the UK church and wider society.

We are offering eight paid roles across our four national offices as part of a new programme which seeks to equip and release some of the best and the brightest talent to serve the UK church. These posts are aimed at graduates or those who have gained equivalent life experience.

What we offer

We have designed a training programme that incorporates weekly content from a range of contributors. This will include theological content, understanding the 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 also be interaction with the other graduates on the scheme.

The main training component will be delivered for two hours on a Tuesday morning which must be a 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.

How long?

The scheme will run from mid-October 2020 until the end of June 2021. In the current context there will be a mix of office-based and remote working – applicants will therefore need to be able to access their own computer. There is some flexibility in working hours and these should be agreed with line managers.
