The Vacancy...
The appointment process for an incumbent is as follows:
  • Diocese’s Designated Officer (Diocesan Director of Human Resources) give formal notification of the vacancy to PCC Secretary and Parish Trustees
  • PCC Secretary/Chair arrange a special meeting of PCC and invite Rural Dean to attend
  • Special meeting appoints 2 lay members of PCC to act as parish representatives in appointment process including interviewing potential candidates.
  • Special meeting arranges completion of Parish Fact Sheet which provides factual information about the parish, congregations, leadership, buildings and finance.
  • Special meeting arranges preparation and agreement of Parish Profile which includes what is happening in the Parish, what developments we would like to see and the role description for the new incumbent.
  • The PCC has selected a small team to produce the Parish Profile and it would very much value your contributions. If you have any thoughts on things that you would like to see in the Parish Profile - for example what makes our Parish unique, matters we need to emphasise, the things that might entice the right person, then please let us know before the end of August. Also please share your thoughts on what qualities you would like to see in the new incumbent. You can email Carol Brooks-Johnson on : fredjohnson365@gmail.com or speak with Judith Woolley at Holy Cross or Judith Giles at Christ Church.
  • When finished, copies of the Parish Profile, Parish Fact Sheet and latest financial accounts are sent to the Designated Officer for appointments, Parish Trustees, Bishop of Chester, Bishop of Stockport, Archdeacon, Rural Dean, Deanery Lay Chairman and PCC representatives.
  • Vacancy is advertised on the Diocesan website. Bishop of Chester may have potential candidates to suggest.
  • Parish Trustees in consultation with PCC representatives draw up a shortlist of candidates
  • Interviews are conducted together by the Parish Trustees, PCC Representatives and the Bishop or their representative.
  • Parish Trustees give notice of their choice of incumbent to the Bishop seeking their approval.
  • When all parties have reached agreement that a particular candidate is the right one, the successful candidate will be written to offering them the post.
  • Once the offer has been accepted a Notice of appointment is issued by Diocesan Director of Human Resources.
