Administration Executive


St Mary Redcliffe Church Bristol Is seeking a highly motivated, dedicated, flexible and creative Administration Executive to provide an effective and efficient administrative/operational foundation for St Mary Redcliffe’s future.


Full time 37.5 hours per week, initially a 12 month contract


Salary £25,000.00




St Mary Redcliffe is a magnificent and historically important church which provides a wonderful setting for Christian worship for well over 800 years, and as an embodiment of local, national and international heritage attracts tens of thousands of visitors each year from all over the world.

The present church is a treasure of international importance, a Grade I listed building that is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture.  All the features of St Mary Redcliffe speak clearly of the beauty and the infinite variety in God’s world.


However, it is also generally recognised that the current church building is ill equipped to support all the activities associated with a major parish church, heritage attraction and event space in the 21st century.


Recently the church ran a competition to appoint a team of architects to work with the church on realising our ambition of ‘Bringing the song of faith and justice’ to the church our community and our visitors.


We stand on the brink of this significant change as we explore opportunities to enhance and grow our organisation in support of our ambition and vision. To help us achieve the change needed we are looking for a highly motivated, dedicated, flexible and creative individual capable of driving and implementing positive change in our administration and support activities, helping to build an effective and efficient foundation for our future.
