This is a part time role for 2-3 days per week. There is some flexibility in how these hours are worked across the week. The Director of Women's Ministry is one of the operational directors of the Proclamation Trust. Her primary purpose is to train women for expository Bible teaching ministry, while promoting and modelling complementarian ministry. Her time is divided between the Cornhill Training Course and a variety of Conferences, both here in the UK and overseas. The Assistant to the Director of Women's Ministry will assist in this work, contributing in a real and meaningful way to our vision of training and equipping women to teach the Bible in the UK and beyond.

The Assistant to the Director of Women's ministry will play a significant part in this vision.
