Administrative Assistant needed for St Melangell’s

St Melangell’s Church and the St Melangell Centre are looking for a part-time Administrative Assistant. The person appointed would support the Guardian of the Shrine Church with administrative tasks to enable her to concentrate on her pastoral and priestly duties. Applicants would have IT and office skills but should also enjoy meeting people and be prepared to undertake housekeeping tasks and serve refreshments. It is hoped that they could help to promote St Melangell’s on social media and coordinate volunteers.  They will also take bookings and facilitate arrangements for the new Shepherd’s Hut, which provides simple accommodation for people seeking a retreat or rest and reflection.
To receive a job description and find out more, please contact Rev’d Christine Browne at the St Melangell Centre, Pennant Melangell,  Llangynog, SY10 OHQ;  or 01691 860408.
