Primary Adviser : RE and Catholic Ethos
Please find attached a recruitment pack for the diocesan post of Primary RE Adviser. As you will see, the pack includes introductory letter, advert, job description, person specification, and diocesan application form. I would be grateful if you would bring this to the attention of your RE Co-Ordinator, middle and senior leaders as appropriate and encourage them to look closely at the opportunity.
I would be especially grateful if you would draw attention to the fact that, whilst the vacancy is full-time, I am very willing to look at a range of models and applications. I am happy to consider applications from candidates seeking full-time work alongside applications from those seeking part-time work; those seeking term-time only employment; and/or part-time candidates expressing a preference to work solely in Sussex or Surrey.
I understand that travel has been flagged as a concern for some and I am seeking to mitigate this by offering the opportunity for those seeking part-time employment to work across either Surrey or Sussex. In addition, in the light of Covid 19 and its aftermath I do not foresee as much travel to schools going forward (whether for a full-time or part-time applicant) as was the case in the past. I would therefore strongly encourage interested parties not to be put off by travel or by past practices.
Please encourage suitably qualified staff to look at this seriously – it is in all our interests to get the very best individual(s) to support such a key aspect of Catholic education!
