Presbytery of Greenock and Paisley
Clerk: Rev Dr Peter McEnhill




1.    to act as Clerk to the Presbytery, to the Business Committee and other Presbytery committees as required.


          2.    to manage the Presbytery office, including the supervision and line management of office staff within the Presbytery.


          3.    to organise additional Presbytery meetings of various kinds as may from time to time be required.



A good knowledge of Church law and procedure is required, as well as good relational skills with the ability to offer guidance to Presbyters as appropriate. 


The Clerk will provide a link to the offices of the Church of Scotland, to other Presbyteries and to congregations within the Presbytery of Greenock and Paisley, as well as to other denominations.


This will be a part-time position requiring an average of 20 hours per week.  It may be of interest to a recently retired minister or elder with a strong record of Presbytery involvement. It may suit someone in a part-time post but would be difficult for someone serving in a full-time charge.


The position attracts a salary of £20,000 per annum and is offered initially on a three year contract, which may be extended depending on the implementation of the Radical Action Plan.


The appointment is subject to the approval of the Presbytery of Greenock and Paisley.


Applications may be sent in the form of a CV, with names and contact details of 2 referees to the Presbytery Office at ‘Homelea’, Faith Avenue, Quarrier’s Village, Bridge of Weir PA11 3SX.


Closing date:  Monday 5th August 2019



A full job description is available here and further details can be obtained from the Business Convener, Rev Kenneth Gray, or acting Depute Clerk, Rev Alistair Shaw.
