How to advertise a vacancy
Advertising your vacancy on
the Clergy Appointments Adviser's website
The online vacancy list is updated on
a regular basis, and consists of posts available in each diocese
that we have been made aware of.
Guidelines for placing your advert with us are as follows:
- Keep your advert succinct and to the point. It is better to
grab people's attention with a short, well written advert and tell
them where they can get further details from, than bog them down
with endless details at this early stage.
- Please do include a closing date on your advert or it cannot be
uploaded. This will also enable us to keep your advert live for as
long as possible (maximum of 2 months) and to keep the vacancy list
fresh. Where the closing date is omitted we shall add one based on
a calendar month from receipt of the vacancy in this office.
- Please allow a gap of a month before asking us to re-advertise
a vacancy for a post. It would also be a good idea to look at
whether the advert needs revamping to catch people's attention
better second time around.
- We do not accept adverts that ask for male only applicants if
there is not also mention that the parish in question has taken
Resolutions A&B at the very least. This is a bit of a grey area
in terms of employment law and church exemption, however in the
interests of best practice we can only take such adverts with the
- Please ensure that the advert you place with us has been
approved by the relevant people or persons. These may include your
local bishop, archdeacon or the patron.
- Please submit your advert in text only in a word document and
to a maximum of one side of A4. We cannot reproduce graphics and
logos etc. Please give details where job and parish profiles can be
obtained, preferably with an email address or a web-link.
Please send your advert to email@example.com
allowing as much time as possible before the deadline. If you have
any questions relating to this please email in the first instance
to the same email address.
