Why join us?

We want people who share our passion to pray, grow and serve, who are committed to working collaboratively to embed these values in parishes and mission communities, and in our diocesan offices. We have posts in churches of all traditions, whether you are interested in serving in a fresh expression of church, a traditional parish, a Resource Church or in a lay post in one of our diocesan offices.

Devon is one of the most beautiful counties in England, with moorland, two spectacular coastlines and many areas of outstanding natural beauty. Its capital city, Exeter, is frequently voted as one of the best places to live and bring up a family. Plymouth has seen great investment and is a thriving, diverse city. We are certain you will find the right place for you in this wonderful part of the world.

The Diocese of Exeter, under the leadership of Bishop Robert, is committed to supporting and resourcing its clergy and lay staff. Our new diocesan secretary is simplifying our structures to ensure that they open doors rather than block them, that they don’t hold people back from delivering our priorities. If you are applying for a post in a parish or mission community, know that our resources and our dedicated team of staff in our diocesan offices are focussed on supporting our mission communities and our clergy and lay teams. We hope you will want to begin an exciting new journey with us.
