Executive Recruitment


Welcome and thank you for your interest in the role of Diocesan Secretary and Chief Executive Officer in the Diocese of Coventry!

I’ve been Bishop of Coventry for over thirteen years and I remain deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve the people of Coventry, Warwickshire and our share of Solihull through the life and ministry of the Church of England.

We have an iconic Cathedral, wonderful parishes in city, towns and villages, popular schools and skilled chaplaincies embedded in places of work, care and learning.

We’re clear about our purpose to worship God, make new disciples and transform communities as God’s reconciling people.

We’ve adventurously embarked on a church-growing strategy to found new congregations across our parishes.

My vision for the Diocese as the country emerges out of Covid is that we will be life bearing, life-bringing agents of the life-giving energy of God’s love for each person and every community.

I’m looking for a lead-colleague to help each of us in the Diocese of Coventry take this work and ministry forward in ways that make the best use of all the assets God’s generosity has given to us in finance, people, buildings and place in society.

My prayers are with you as you explore whether you feel that you might be that person.

Christopher Cocksworth, Bishop of Coventry
