It is the agreed policy of the House of Bishops that newly ordained ministers should serve at least three years in a training post before taking on a post of incumbent status.
You will find our policy and guidance for dioceses below:
After their first phase of training, ordinands need a ‘title post’ to which they will be ordained and in which they will continue their training as a curate.
For ordinands who have been ‘released’ by their sponsoring diocese and are seeking a title post in a different diocese, this page acts as a noticeboard of vacant positions. Click on the headings below for more information. Please use the contact details provided with each advert for more information on the post and how to apply. This list has the most recent notices at the top.
Guidance and support for candidates during this process is the responsibility of the ordinand’s TEI and sponsoring diocese, with the TEI normally taking the lead role when candidates are considering a title post in a different diocese, so please raise any questions or concerns with your TEI.
Sheffield Diocese is looking to import for 2 or 3 Title Posts in 2022 for curates who feel a special call to planting or grafting.
Rather than pre-determining particular settings, the sponsoring bishop is open to hearing from interested ordinands and discussing what they might bring to our ambitious plans for extending the Kingdom of God in these challenging, yet exciting times.
For an initial conversation please contact the DDO:
Rev Stephen Hunter

St Martin’s, Camberley
Guildford Diocese seeks a Curate to serve in the parish of St Martin’s, situated on the Old Dean, a large housing estate on the north-east side of the town of Camberley. Although this is one of the most deprived parishes in the Diocese, there are huge opportunities for mission and ministry, providing a great context for a deeply formational curacy.
The parish has a particular passion to serve the children and youth of the community, to deepen the discipleship of the church family, and to serve the wider community – especially those who are lonely, bereaved, unwell, and those struggling with life. Guildford seeks an ordinand who is passionate about St Martin’s mission priorities and is willing to serve, partnering with God alongside a strong cohort of gifted and passionate laity and clergy.
Incumbent Revd Chris Richardson writes, “St Martin’s is a warm and friendly place to be, and where all are loved and valued, and where everyone has a vitally important part to play. We pray our socks off, love people to bits and really care for each other. We’ve seen God move amongst us, especially in our community, in many extraordinary ways. We’d love you to come and join in.”
The curacy will begin at Petertide 2022 and lasts a maximum of 3 years and 1 month.

We are looking to import up to three stipendiary curates in Hereford for 2022, with three varied potential placements: a large established Team around a market town; a fully rural multi-parish benefice (both in the broadly liberal catholic tradition) and a newly established urban estate parish, in a broadly charismatic evangelical tradition.
For further information please contact the Director of Vocations & Ordinands, Revd Neil Patterson [email protected].
The Diocese of Lichfield welcomes you to explore the opportunity of serving your curacy with us. We offer a wide variety of contexts and traditions across the three episcopal areas of Wolverhampton, Stafford and Shrewsbury. Being released from your home diocese to explore a title post elsewhere can be both exciting and stressful. We would be delighted to journey with you as you discern where God might be calling you to serve him. We look forward to hearing from you.
