Church of England

The National Church Institutions (NCIs) comprises a wide variety of functions and professions to support the mission and ministries of the Church by working with those who serve in parishes, dioceses, schools and other ministries, and with partners at a national and international level.

Our values

  • We strive for excellence 
  • We collaborate 
  • We act with integrity 
  • We show compassion 
  • We respect others 

Our training, policies, procedures and practices are all intended to support behaviours in line with our values and we expect all staff to uphold these.


Our aim is for everyone in the NCIs to feel that they belong, and are valued for who they are and what they contribute. 

We understand the benefits of employing individuals from a range of backgrounds, with diverse cultures and talents. We employ people of all faiths and none, and aim to create a workforce that:

  • values difference in others and respects the dignity and worth of each individual
  • reflects the diversity of the nation that the Church of England exists to serve
  • fosters a climate of creativity, tolerance and diversity that will help all staff to develop to their full potential.
  • We are committed to being an equal opportunities employer and to ensuring that everyone, job applicants, customers and other people with whom we deal, are treated fairly and not subject to discrimination.  We will do whatever is necessary to provide genuine equality of opportunity. We continuously review our policies and processes to support our aim to create a workforce as diverse as the nation the Church of England serves.
