Events and Meetings Administrator
The Diocese of Arundel and Brighton
The St Philip Howard Centre, 4 Southgate Drive, Crawley, RH10 6RP (based in Hove until Summer 2022)

The Events and Meetings Administrator (Formation Team) is responsible for providing administrative support for the events and projects undertaken by the Formation Team. The Formation team comprises a number of highly motivated expert Advisers, as well as the Episcopal Vicar for Formation and the Administrator. The Advisers, several of whom are part-time, have overall responsibility for the success of events and courses, but rely closely on the Administrator for all aspects of logistics and planning. The different Formation areas have their own Priest Advisers and some have the involvement of a lay Commission - a group of key volunteers who input into planning projects in the various areas of ministry.

This is a diverse and challenging role with a large number of stakeholders, and requires a flexible and communicative approach. A high degree of collaboration is required in order to support a vibrant and varied Formation team calendar - with attendee numbers ranging from around a dozen to 400. This is a full-time, office-based role (35 hours per week) - some evening and weekend work is required when the Administrator assists at out-of-hours events. Time off in lieu is given. The role is office­ based in Crawley and requires liaison with colleagues onsite and working remotely and in parishes. During the first half of 2022 the role will be based in the Diocesan head office in Hove (due to an office refurbishment project), before relocating to the permanent base in Crawley (travel allowances will be given to access the temporary workplace in Hove).
