Senior Strategy Consultant


The Strategy and Development Unit (Church of England central team) has a unique role in providing consultancy support to bishops and senior leadership teams in the Church’s dioceses on their growth strategies, and in advising on and managing the distribution of around £50 million per annum of national funding.

This includes the Strategic Development Funding, a major grant-making programme to support diocesan growth projects. The Unit is playing a key supportive role in helping the Church of England renew and reform its mission and arrest its decline.

As Senior Strategy Consultant, you will take a key role in the Unit’s consultancy work, proactively engaging with bishops and their senior leadership teams to support and shape their strategy development and implementation.

You will make a significant impact in helping dioceses develop their Strategic Development Funding applications and then support these projects through implementation and subsequent evaluation, monitoring and shared learning.

To be successful, you will need significant experience of delivering major change projects, ideally operating in a consultancy environment with multiple clients, the ability to think strategically and to lead by example, demonstrating drive and commitment to the priorities of the Church of England.
