St Paul’s Collegiate is an independent Anglican secondary school situated in Hamilton, New Zealand. Regarded as one of the country’s leading schools, it currently has a roll of 700 students, 320 of whom are boarders. Boys only in Years 9 and 10, St Paul’s is co-educational in the senior school (Years 11, 12 and 13).

The Chaplain plays a crucial part in the daily life of the school, nurturing and attending to the spiritual and pastoral needs of the school community through taking services three times per week in the magnificent Chapel of Christ the King, providing spiritual guidance, teaching religious education and being a central member of the pastoral team. We need someone who will actively promote and encourage a caring, inclusive and respectful community whilst supporting its ethos and culture by involvement in co-curricular activities.

Our ideal Chaplain will be an ordained Priest of the Anglican Church with a grounding in Parish ministry / schools. An inspiring preacher and confident public speaker the successful candidate will need a strong blend of pastoral, teaching and coaching skills -with the confidence and ability to use technology and a blend of multimedia in the delivery of their message. Knowledge, skills or experience in the area/s of youth ministry, teaching or education would also be an advantage.

Our current Chaplain is returning to the UK at the end of the year so we’d ideally like our new Chaplain to join the school at the start of Term 1, 2018.

A competitive remuneration package is on offer for the successful candidate, including salary (NZD $80,000 – $85,000 per annum) plus the provision of a large, modern four bedroom family home (utilities included) and support with relocation (if required).
