Looking to maintain your skills and experience outside of the workplace? Looking for a new challenge?

The Diocese of Truro is the Church of England in Cornwall, and we are looking for professionals (current or retired) to share their talents with us.

The diocese includes over 300 churches in more than 200 parishes across the whole of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly (and two lucky parishes in Devon). We are made up of thousands of volunteers and clergy working together to support our communities. The Truro Diocesan Board of Finance (TDBF) Ltd is responsible for supporting this work by providing governance, resources, and guidance. While the governance is led by the Bishops Diocesan Council, chaired by the Bishop of Truro, they are supported by volunteers bringing a wealth of expertise to a number of expert committees.

We are currently looking to recruit skilled and experienced volunteers to strengthen our governance.

Each role offers the opportunity to have a real impact on a large organisation that is recognised in every community in our county. We hold significant assets and responsibilities, which we take seriously, and want to engage the best, most able, individuals to hold us to account.  These roles are:

We are committed to equity, diversity and inclusion and especially welcome applications from women, disabled candidates and those from of UKME heritage as these groups are under-represented in our governance.
