The Bishop’s residence in Pease Pottage has a small office team comprising a Full-time Personal Assistant and a Part-time Secretary. The PA is responsible for managing the Bishop’s diary, organising meetings and supporting him with mailings and other communications. The Part-time Secretary takes the lead on some of the office administration, such as filing and archiving, co-ordinating the Diocesan Confirmation programme and processing requests for Papal Honours.

Record-keeping tasks would include updating basic financial spread-sheets and databases. You would also be responsible for ordering supplies, co-ordinating property maintenance projects and liaising with the Finance team in Hove to monitor the house budget. Support and training will be given.
