An opportunity is being created which will appeal to a self-motivated person who can give attention to detail, and who is happy working as part of a team.

At Sunbury Court we lead four 6-week Sessions for selected Salvation Army Officers from around the World (the International College for Officers), as well as facilitating a variety of other conferences, mainly - but not exclusively - from within the Salvation Army.  The International College for Officers (ICO) seeks to provide an environment of deep learning and spiritual development in an environment that is conducive to renewal and refreshment.

You should possess good communication skills and have experience of working with Microsoft packages – including PowerPoint and Excel - and an interest in developing skills with IT and Audio-visual equipment etc.  You will have good business acumen, will have the ability to remain calm under pressure and will enjoy problem solving.  You will be able to maintain confidentiality and be supportive to the other staff.

It is essential that the applicant can demonstrate a willingness to work comfortably within the Christian ethos of The Salvation Army.

Applicants must be in sympathy with the aims and objectives of The Salvation Army.
