Job Description

Chaplain based at Avonleigh Gardens, Oldham

Available Hours:

Permanent - Part-time- 15 hours per week

Commutable from Littleborough, Marsden, Manchester & Bury

Would you like to make a positive contribution to benefit older people?

Spiritual well-being - rather than religious affiliation or belief - as a universal need is a cornerstone of MHA's positive approach to ageing and we aim to provide the highest quality care and support for older people of all faiths and none.

We are looking for a person who is in good standing with their faith community to take the role of chaplain (a lay person or an ordained minister). They will build good working relationships with local faith communities and take on pastoral care, spiritual and worship aspects of life.

An empathetic understanding of spiritual aspects of ageing and dementia, demonstrated through experience of providing pastoral care and, ideally, leading services, is essential.

Learn more about the support and friendship MHA Chaplains provide to our 7,700 residents across the UK by watching our 'Care of the Spirit' video.

Please note that interviews may take place prior to the advert closing as and when suitable applications are received. If a suitable candidate is appointed the role may close early, therefore please do not hesitate to submit your application.

Avonleigh Gardens was built in 1993 and acquired by MHA in 2007. The home offers care to 58 residents with a wide range of needs, including learning and physical disabilities and dementia care.

The home has been built with four wings, each one with its own kitchen. In 2007, the kitchens were all refitted and new carpets laid throughout the ground floor. Outside, Groundwork Oldham & Rochdale has undertaken voluntary work to improve the gardens, at no charge. "I think the home is beautiful," writes one resident. "I couldn't have picked a better place."

For more information about the home please visit here.

Agencies: Please note, MHA do not accept unsolicited CV's from any agencies, regardless of whether they are on our Preferred Supplier List (PSL) or not. We only accept CV's from agencies that have been appointed and briefed by MHA's central Talent Acquisition Team."
