We are seeking a CFOO who shares our vision and commitment to keep telling the story of Jesus and helping people to encounter God afresh through worship and service to the wider community in ways that are meaningful and have relevance in our world today. With significant experience of the business and accounting world, the CFOO will bring an entrepreneurial spirit, creativity, energy and drive to assist the Dean and Chapter in the delivery of our strategic aims and objectives and will themselves play an important part in shaping the future life, growth and sustainability of the Cathedral.
The impact of COVID-19 should not be underestimated in the affect it has had on the mission and ministry of Blackburn Cathedral. Our financial position is fragile, but our commitment as a team to navigate these uncertain times successfully is both encouraging and exciting to be part of. You will be joining a team who enjoy working together and are excited by the challenges that are before us. As Charles Darwin once said “It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, rather, it is those most responsive to change.” We aspire to appoint a CFOO with the tenacity and determination to respond to the changing environment around us and help to get the job done!
