If you’re a talented and experienced finance professional looking for a new challenge in an organisation that is unique in Cornwall then this role may be for you.

Did you see the word ‘Diocese’ and think that this role isn’t for you? Well, please think again. Our 45 staff come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some of our jobs require the jobholder to be a practising Christian, but not all, and this role doesn’t require you to be. What’s important is that your values align with ours, and you want to work for an organisation that makes a real difference to communities and people’s lives.

We are looking to appoint a Finance Manager who can apply their skills and experience to the variety of work that this role entails. It is a key, busy and wide ranging role, which is responsible for all aspects of the day to day accounting, and is part of a small finance team. You will combine a strong track record in successful financial management with excellent communication and time management skills. You will also have a proven ability to work with a diverse range of stakeholders, which includes trustees, bishops, staff, vicars, auditors and volunteers in the 213 parishes across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

At the Diocese of Truro we really value work-life balance and employee wellbeing, we have a friendly and comfortable office environment and are committed to supporting your development. We offer additional benefits such as free parking, a range of wellbeing activities and the Church of England Pension Scheme with 9-15% employer contributions.

This is a challenging time for the organisation and we are undertaking a number of projects and initiatives to secure the long-term financial stability of the organisation. You could be the person that helps us do that.  Why not look at our website and find out some more.
