People and Culture Manager

Moore Theological College
Location: Newtown, NSW
Date advertised: 7th March 2023
Job Type: Full time
Closing Date: 19 March 2023

Moore Theological College Council is seeking a People and Culture Manager to take responsibility for all the human resources aspects of the College. This significant and exciting role will enable you to contribute to the global vision, mission and reach of the College.

The College

Moore College is one of Australia’s leading reformed evangelical theological colleges, with a world-wide reputation for outstanding theological education and ministry training. It was founded in 1856 and offers courses from diploma level to doctoral level. In 2021 it was one of only three higher educational institutions initially admitted to the category of University College by the Federal Government’s Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency. It currently has around 400 undergraduate and postgraduate students.

The College’s vision is to see God glorified by men and women living for and proclaiming Jesus Christ, growing healthy churches and reaching the lost. Its mission, the part it has to play in the realisation of that vision, is to provide an excellent evangelical theological education that immerses future gospel workers in the Bible and prepares them for a faithful ministry of the word of God in the context of vibrant, loving learning community. While flexible in its modes of delivery (online, part-time, full-time), its central academic program is a four-year full-time residential course which terminates in a Master’s degree.

While primarily serving the Anglican Diocese of Sydney and governed by a Board of which the Archbishop of Sydney is the President, the College has a long history of enrolling students from a variety of denominations. Its graduates serve as parish ministers, chaplains, university workers and members of theological faculties around the world.

Located in Newtown, the College currently has 18 full-time Faculty and 80 staff. The College is committed to a safe and encouraging workplace that reflects the Christian gospel it proclaims, and in 2021 was awarded the Best Workplace Award for a positive workplace culture and in 2022 the Change Champions Award for the growth in our culture.
