C. Training: which includes the recruiting, equipping and support of volunteers for the furtherance of the work; and developing resources for them to use.
It is expected that the schools worker will be pro-active in making contact with schools and churches, whilst recognising that all activities within schools or churches are at the their invitation and approval.
The role will include some weekend and evening commitments. We are willing to consider a part time worker or job share.
