Senior researcher

Location     Wilson Carlile Centre, Sheffield
Details With a growing reputation and demand, this is an exciting time to join the Research Unit and Church Army’s wider Learning and Development team. Since its inception in 1997, the Research Unit has had the brief to examine contemporary Christian evangelism, mission, and the creation of fresh expressions of Church.

As a Senior Researcher, you will make a substantive contribution to the design and delivery of mixed method research projects. These include externally funded research projects and evaluations for dioceses and national church institutions as well as internal research and consultancy work for Church Army. You will be expected to take initiative in the development of new projects, working with the Research Team leader to help identify, contract, design and deliver these. As a Senior Researcher, you will also play an important role in mentoring more junior colleagues and communicating with the wider church through speaking engagements and publications.

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.
£33,904 per annum pro-rata
Hours     37.5 hours, with some evening and weekend work required as the job dictates. 

We are recruiting 1.5 posts across two roles within the Research Team and would therefore consider applications from those looking for part-time hours.
Pension Church Army is an auto enrolment employer. You will be assessed under auto enrolment legislation and if eligible for pension contributions, you will be enrolled into a qualifying scheme and minimum pension contributions will be made by the employer.

Alternative provisions are available if you are ordained or a commissioned Church Army evangelist, both of which are non-contributory by the employee. 
Annual Leave 25 days plus public bank holidays, pro-rata.
Contract Full-Time, Open-Ended 
Occupational Requirement
Due to the responsibilities of the role there is an occupational requirement under the Equality Act 2010 that the post holder has an active faith in Jesus, demonstrated by an involvement in a local church and agreement with the vision and values of Church Army.

Friday 28 August 2020
Thursday 17 September 2020
