Job details

Contract hours: Full time
Basis: Fixed term
Location: Uppingham
Closing date: 27 February 2023, 9:00 am


Uppingham School seeks to appoint an emotionally and spiritually mature graduate chaplaincy assistant for the academic year 2023 – 24.

The role is likely to appeal to graduates who are looking to develop the broad range of pastoral and teaching skills needed for Christian ministry. While previous theological training and / or experience of church work may be useful, this is not as important as an engaging and caring personality and deep commitment to helping young people to discover their potential.

Uppingham’s foundation is Anglican and the worshipping life of the Chapel follows this tradition. The graduate chaplaincy assistant should be sympathetic to the ethos and traditions of the Church of England, but applicants from any Christian denomination will be welcomed.

Applications are welcome from graduates in any subject. Some classroom teaching may be offered.

Accommodation is available.

Closing date for applications: Monday 27 February 2023, 9.00am. Interviews will take place on Wednesday 8 March 2023.
