Jobs at Church Army’s Research Unit

Category: Uncategorized

Date: August 4, 2020

With a growing reputation and demand, this is an exciting time to join the Research Unit and Church Army’s wider Learning and Development team. Since its inception in 1997, the Research Unit has had the brief to examine contemporary Christian evangelism, mission, and the creation of fresh expressions of Church. We are recruiting 1.5 posts across two roles within the Research Team. Though one post is advertised as full-time and one as part-time, we would consider applications for either position from those looking for full-time or part-time hours.

Senior Researcher
As a Senior Researcher, you will make a substantive contribution to the design and delivery of mixed method research projects. These include externally funded research projects and evaluations for dioceses and national church institutions as well as internal research and consultancy work for Church Army. You will be expected to take initiative in the development of new projects, working with the Research Team leader to help identify, contract, design and deliver these. As a Senior Researcher, you will also play an important role in mentoring more junior colleagues and communicating with the wider church through speaking engagements and publications.

Part-time Qualitative Researcher
Church Army are looking for someone with an enthusiasm for research and the difference it can make, to join our team. You will be involved in the design and delivery of mixed method research projects, contributing particularly to the qualitative aspects of our work. This will include both ‘internal’ research on Church Army Centres of Mission and research-oriented consultancy for external clients and funding partners.

Closing date for both posts: Friday 28 August
