Pilgrim Uniting Church (Pilgrim) is a part of the Uniting Church in Australia, which was formed by the Union of the Methodist, Congregational and Presbyterian Churches. Situated in the centre of the CBD, Pilgrim’s mission is to generate new life and vitality in the City of Adelaide. As part of this, Pilgrim provides a safe meeting place for people who are not often seen or heard, enabling them to share their stories with the Church.
The position of Business Manager plays both a strategic and operational role in optimising financial returns and streamlining administration to support the staff and volunteers involved in Pilgrim’s extensive ministry and mission.
Reporting to the Chair of the Church Council, this position forms part of the leadership team and is a key advisor to the Operations Committee and Church Council on the business and administrative operations of the Church.
Contributing to strategy and business planning, key responsibilities include maximising the potential for increasing income, organising the management of the Church’s significant asset base (both financial and on-site property) and ensuring the smooth operation of services offered by Pilgrim. In a hands-on capacity, the successful candidate will be required to lead the day-to-day financial accounting function, reporting, financial modelling, budgeting and statutory requirements, whilst ensuring robust governance and risk management processes are implemented and adhered to.
The successful candidate must be a strategic thinker, have a contemporary leadership style, be able to work collaboratively and establish effective working relationships with staff and volunteers and be sympathetic to both the Christian values espoused by Pilgrim and Pilgrim’s ministry and mission to the city. Warmth, energy and integrity, along with a genuine affinity with a community serving organisation are also important. Relevant tertiary qualifications in accounting or commerce are essential requirements for this role. Considerable experience in MYOB is preferred.
This position is offered on a part-time basis of 25 hours per week. Flexibility regarding working hours and days can be negotiated in order to secure the right candidate. Car parking will be provided.
