SCM is seeking to employ a Manchester based Regional Development Worker and also to recruit volunteers to join their Council of Reference, which provides advice to SCM trustees.

The Regional Development Worker will cover the North West of England to start in September. The post is full time (35 hours per week) with a salary of £20-22,000 depending on experience. The Regional Development Worker will be joining a small dynamic staff team, developing our work with students in the North West of England. The successful candidate will expand our network of student groups and link churches, organise events, deliver training and work with students, local churches and chaplaincies to improve and develop student outreach and engagement in the region. Experience of Christian student work within a church or chaplaincy context would be an advantage.
