Buckinghamshire Historic Churches Trust – Secretary

The Buckinghamshire Historic Churches Trust is seeking to recruit a suitably experienced Secretary to support its activities.

The object of the Trust is to award grants for restoration and repair of places of worship throughout the Buckinghamshire Archdeaconry which extends from Slough to Milton Keynes.


The Secretary will be responsible for:

  • Arranging and minuting trustees meetings.
  • Processing grant applications, including the arrangement of inspections.
  • Processing routine correspondence.
  • Editing the Trust’s website and social media content and liaising with the Trust’s website.
  • Dealing with other administrative matters.

Application and Terms of Appointment

The post, which is expected to demand around 50 hours work per annum, will be subject to an honorarium and out of pocket expenses. The hourly rate will be based on Parish Clerk scales, subject to skills and experience.

The post will be largely home based, only requiring travel to attend trustees meetings and very occasional other ‘ad-hoc’ meetings.

The Trust meets three times a year at churches across the Archdeaconry.

Applications are invited by sending a recent CV and covering letter, setting out why you wish to apply for the role and what skills you would bring to it, with the names of two referees, to The Secretary secretary@bucks-historic-churches.org

Potential applicants may also wish to discuss these roles informally with the Chairman, which can be arranged through the Secretary.

Applications should be received by Monday 18th December 2023, with interviews to be held in January.

More information about the Trust and our recent activity can be found on our website: http://bucks-historic-churches.org/

The Trust is committed to equality and diversity principles and would particularly welcome applications from individuals from under-represented groups.
