This will include both ‘internal’ research on Church Army Centres of Mission and research-oriented consultancy for external clients and funding partners.

The team works closely together, to live out its Christian ethos and model Church Army values, and the post holder for this role will actively engage in this also. We are looking for someone who will be excited to research what God is doing and how lives are being transformed across Church Army, sharing in our belief in what we do and why we do it.

Hours     18.75 hours, with some evening and weekend work required as the job dictates. Normal working pattern will include Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Contract Part-Time, Open-Ended
