Excellent County Ecumenical Officers are crucial to the health development of Intermediate Bodies and helping this to happen is a high priority for Churches Together in England. Doral Hayes is always ready to help with advice and practical support, though she can only share experience. You still need to obtain proper HR advice.

CEO posts are usually open to both lay and ordained people. You will find excellent and up-to-date information and resources on the website of the Methodist Church and that may supersede information on these pages.

But first:

  • Be aware of what is available in this area of our website. Below you will find links to all the resources. We’ve tried to make it as clear as possible.
  • The first task is to agree your employment documentation and work out a timescale. Please be aware that you must not ask for a DBS check unless you can justify doing so. Our documents are experienced-based and you still need to obtain HR advice.
  • Don’t ignore our advice about advertising and remember we can host your documentation on our website if you wish.

If that feels complicated or confusing, please do contact Doral Hayes who can advise and navigate you through the process.
