As a Christian organisation, we believe you were created with a unique character. You have gifts and abilities that are all your own. So we're willing to explore how what you have might fit what we need.
We know there's no such thing as the perfect candidate. You don't have to tick every box on the job description before you can even think of applying to work for us. If you think you've got most of what we want and you're excited about what we're doing, go ahead.
You have a life outside work, and we want you to be able to live it well. So we're happy to talk to you about flexible working hours and working from home. We aren't impressed if you respond to emails at midnight.
Learn and grow
When you're trained in a new skill, or learn a different perspective, it benefits you and it benefits us. We're committed to making it possible for everyone to flourish and be the best they can be, with a huge variety of learning resources available.
Together and apart
We believe in home working where it's appropriate, and during lockdown we made that work really well. But we know how important it is to meet face to face, too. We're committed to making the office an enriching environment, where people are glad to be.
