Applications are invited for the post of Anglican Chaplain within Student Advisory and Wellbeing at Royal Holloway University of London.

The College wishes to appoint an ordained Church of England Minister as Anglican Chaplain to be part of a Multi-faith Chaplaincy with an Anglican foundation, drawing on appropriate links with a variety of churches and other faith groups for the benefit of students and staff within the College. We are seeking a new incumbent to work as part of this team - with support from an administrator - to develop our faith, worship, and pastoral offering on campus and to provide a strong, visible presence on campus, building and fostering community including through outreach activities.

Royal Holloway began as two pioneering colleges for the education of women in the 19th century and their spirit lives on today. Royal Holloway is today, more than ever, the backdrop to many stories – historical, architectural and cinematic, as well as academic and personal. The College is strengthened by our diverse, multi-cultural community and the incumbent will embrace and enjoy the opportunities this brings. With our motto ‘Esse quam videri’ (‘to be rather than to seem’) our community is one that inspires individuals to succeed. Royal Holloway has a beautiful and historic Chapel with a strong choral tradition and regular services, both ecumenical and of different dominations. Housed in one of the most spectacular university buildings in the world, and completed in 1886, the beautiful gilded Chapel includes bas-reliefs by Ceccardo Fucigna and a fine three-manual organ.

This is a permanent post available from 1 July 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter. This post is based in Egham, Surrey where the College is situated in a beautiful, leafy campus near to Windsor Great Park and within commuting distance from London. A local house will be provided by the Church for the successful applicant. We also offer a highly competitive package including:

  • Salary paid at the local incumbency rate.
  • Generous annual leave entitlement.
  • Training and development opportunities.
  • Pension scheme with generous employer contribution.
  • Various schemes including Cycle to Work, help with the cost of eyesight testing, and access to an Employer Assistance Programme.
  • Free parking.
  • Workplace Nursery (Bright Horizons, Englefield Green).

Please note that it will not be possible for the College to issue a Certificate of Sponsorship for successful candidates as this role does not fall into one of the standard occupational codes deemed eligible for sponsorship by UK Visas and Immigration and the pro-rata salary will not meet the minimum threshold set by UK Visas and Immigration. Successful candidates will therefore need to be eligible to work in the UK or have limited leave to remain in the UK and associated right to work for the duration of their employment with the College, in accordance with the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006.
