An exciting opportunity has arisen to help drive forward the community ministry and commercial activity of St Thomas’ Church in Chesterfield.

Based in the St Thomas’ eco-Centre we are seeking a resourceful and innovative ‘people’ person with a passion for hospitality and attention to detail that can lead a dedicated team of staff and volunteers who have made our Centre a vital hub for community and a first choice venue for business. Our Centre incorporates a purpose built coffee shop, kitchens and multi-sized meeting spaces that creates a relaxed and comfortable gathering place for individuals, groups or parties. As well as managing our busy Centre you will hold responsibility for exploring and developing the many new business ideas we have as an enterprise company as well as helping us discover new ones that will further enrich the life of St Thomas’ and extend the ministry of the church.

The Role

The role is a mixture of skills which include commercial (making sure everything balances and works on the day), innovative (the lead person responsible for all new business ventures), people focused (leading a team, working with clients, customers and church members of all ages and backgrounds), analytical (seeing things before the rest of us, holding budgetary responsibility for our six-figure annual turnover).

Above all you will have a passion for Christian hospitality and desire to see the ministry of the church extended through creative commercial activity. You will be enthusiastic and ready for the challenge in a role which gives huge amounts of autonomy, creative licence, and scope to make a massive contribution to advancing the Kingdom of God.
