Job: Executive Team Leader – Centre for Youth Ministry

Probably the most influential job in the field of Christian youth worker training has just been created. Even if this is nothing you can do, if you’ve got a passion or just the faintest interest in Christian youth work this is something to be praying about. Here is their blurb:

The Centre for Youth Ministry (CYM) is a successful organisation which exists to create and provide innovative education and professional training and academic research in Christian Youth Work.

After significant structural and organisational review, we are looking to appoint an Executive Team Leader to take CYM to the next stage of its development. This dynamic and inspirational person will develop CYM strategically, leading a team including regional centre directors, oversee the central functions and take CYM into a new season of opportunity.

The successful candidate will have a high level of leadership and management experience, a good understanding of learning and education and an excellent ability to communicate and raise the profile of CYM. You should have an active personal Christian faith with a heart for young people. You should have initiative, experience of issues faced by those in youth ministry and experience in the ‘business’ side of leading a charity.

Salary in the region of £40,000 a year.

There is a Genuine Occupational Requirement for this post to be filled by a committed Christian. Regulation 7(2) of the Employment Equality (Religion or belief) Regulations 2003 apply.
