The immersive syllabus is taught by expert practitioners and covers strategy, tactics, building a campaign team, working with the media, using social media, managing your mental health and much more. We use an experiential and reflective learning methodology that ensures graduates are immersed in what they are learning and leave buzzing with new skills and confidence.

All Saints' Church, Banstead
Added: 6 August 2018
All Saints’ Church, Banstead, is a relatively small but active parish church (Church of England) in the Diocese of Guildford, with an annual income of around £160,000. It is a registered charity, no. 1133791.
We are fortunate to have a full-time Vicar assisted by a curate in training and supported by the Church Council, in working with the local community pastorally and socially. We have the care of a Grade II* listed church building and a large churchyard, expensive delights but helpful for engaging with local people.
Banstead, still known as a village but now a substantial one, is in Surrey, just outside Greater London and within the M25 circle. The church’s postcode is SM7 2NN.
Much of the day-to-day work of cash handling, book-keeping, payroll, etc. is dealt with by other members of the Finance Team, but we need someone to coordinate and deal with the larger picture - preparing the Annual Accounts in accordance with appropriate SORPs, working out budgets, making investment decisions and dealing with large project costs, reporting regularly to the church council and annually to the Charity Commission and Guildford Diocese. We believe a qualified Chartered Accountant is most likely to meet our need.
Support is available from the Finance Team, and the Parish Office has computing facilities and copier available. The Diocese advises on many aspects.
Hours worked would be generally under the Treasurer’s own control, and vary according to the stage of the financial year.
The Churchwardens are Alan Clarke and Susan Major, who would welcome enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org
