Department: Chaplaincy and Colleges
Job title: Chaplaincy Community worker.
Salary: (Fixed term for 2 years, full time). £23,332 - £26,260 pa inclusive of London Weighting Allowance

Start date: 1 September 2019

We are looking for a friendly and out-going Chaplaincy Community Worker to support the mission and aims of the multi-faith chaplaincy team at Roehampton University and of Digby Stuart College founded by the Society of the Sacred Heart, as one of the University colleges.

The Chaplaincy Community Worker (CCW) will support, through proactive and creative community work, the Catholic Chaplain, particularly as they co-lead an ecumenical community house of students. The CCW will live in the community house and, alongside another CCW, will help shape and support its common life and develop ongoing thinking about intentional communities and ecumenism. They will also support the wider activities of the Digby Stuart chapel community, and the multi-faith chaplaincy team.

We anticipate this being an exciting opportunity for those wishing to discern in a practical way their own vocation within the Christian faith, exploring possible future ministries within the context of a modern university, set within beautiful grounds, with a diverse and lively student body.

This is an exciting time for the University; our new £35m state-of-the art library has just opened and we are continuing to develop a number of external partnerships across the globe. We have a strong emphasis on supporting our students to reach their full potential in order to launch themselves onto successful graduate careers and we are embarking on a radical programme of enhancement in learning and teaching across all our academic areas.

The University has a beautiful, vibrant parkland campus, is located in the heart of south-west London and offers excellent facilities for researching, learning, teaching and working. We are proud of our achievements as a Post 1992 University and continue to build upon them.
