Lay Chaplain      Salary – £25,449 – £28,501

St Elizabeth’s is situated in 68 acres of beautiful Hertfordshire parkland between Harlow and Bishop’s Stortford. We support people with epilepsy and other complex neurological needs of all ages in our Children’s Home, School, College, and Residential Home with nursing and Day Centre. Over 150 adults and children call St Elizabeth’s their home, making us an inspirational place to do great work.

This role will play an important role in the wider life of the St. Elizabeth’s community. No two days will be the same as you work with senior staff to plan and deliver a programme of events (religious and non-religious) or support the spiritual life of the centre, liaising with the Daughters of the Cross and the Archdiocese. You will also ensure that the school operates in line with the regulatory expectations of a Catholic school and support our resident Chaplain, Father Paul who leads worship at St Elizabeth’s.

It’s essential that you are a practising Roman Catholic and have experience of working in a residential setting such as a school, hospital or charity. Your excellent communication skills, approachable manner and ability to interact with a wide variety of individuals and stakeholders will make leading or assisting in Catholic worship second nature. You will also have good organisational and administrative skills.

St. Elizabeth’s works closely with the Diocese of Westminster. As such you will be provided with training, support and invitations to attend termly Chaplain days. This is a full time position but flexibility is required to work evenings or weekends
