They will be experienced in clerking for committees and meetings. They will have excellent verbal and written communication skills and be able to produce good quality draft documents. Experience in fulfilling hosting duties for online meetings, including the use of breakout rooms for larger gatherings, is a must, as is the ability to keep calm under pressure.

They will show initiative and flexibility in their approach and in supporting the development and delivery of new areas of work.

There is no Genuine Occupational Requirement for Professional Services staff to be practicing Christians and our staff come from a variety of faith and non-faith backgrounds.
