Event description

Description

A day conference exploring:

  • How to establish an organisational Christian identity.
  • How to find well qualified Christian applicants
  • How to strengthen your selection processes
  • How to give your new staff every chance to succeed
  • How to apply Christian values throughout the process

Join us to discover

  • how you can create a Christian ethos that works in theory and in practice, and build that ethos into your job descriptions, whilst staying on the right side of the law…
  • how you can write the best job adverts, maximise the quality and quantity of applications, and build a strong short list to choose from…
  • how to use a range of methods to select the right person for the job (and organisation/church) and differentiate between professional Christians and Christian professionals…
  • how you can establish the right on-boarding processes, manage the first 90 days, and make sure expectations are clear and well-communicated…

and

  • how you can stay faithful to your Christian mission and discern God’s guidance throughout.

The day will involve a mix of tips, templates and tools, and will encourage you to work on real issues, share real experiences, and identify real actions you can take.

Bruna De Palo from Charityjob will also be with us in the morning to show us what makes a great advert and how we can best use job advertising sites such as Charityjob.

Come ready to share your questions, your examples, your challenges and your stories of good practice.

As usual with these events, there will be lots of opportunity to network with others in similar roles and to learn from one another.
