Vacancies for Parish Staff
Verger at the Parish Church
We are hoping to appoint a verger to work in the Parish for 21 hours a week, plus holiday cover, starting on 1st November 2017. The role of Verger is a job share and this post-holder would be asked to work on Mondays-Wednesdays, although there will be opportunities for overtime and some flexibility regarding hours. The main responsibilities include opening and closing the Church of St John Baptist and the Parish Centre, ensuring that all facilities are prepared for use, to be available for stewards, shop assistants, and delivery contractors, to undertake ‘verging’ duties for special services and other events, to set up furniture as required and ensure the sound system is in good working order. We are looking for someone who is practical, organised and flexible and who can work independently. The role also involves working with the public and teams of volunteers so excellent interpersonal skills are essential. The post-holder will be line-managed by the Vicar and the Church Wardens, with further support offered by the current Vergers. Training and induction will be provided as appropriate. Remuneration is £10.11 per hour, but holiday cover for the other verger (5 weeks) means this is paid for 57 weeks per year. Please apply in writing by completing the on-line application form found below and providing a supporting letter outlining your suitability for this post. Your application should be addressed to the Church Wardens c/o the Parish Office, Gosditch Street, Cirencester, GL7 2AG or email@example.com. The closing date for applications is 20th September and interviews will take place on Wednesday 27th September.
