Our long serving General Manager, John Medlin, is partially retiring - he will be giving up the role of General Manager, and continuing to edit the magazine, Mass of Ages, and manage our publicity, on a reduced number of days a week.
So we need a new one. John has been doing the job on a 4-day week, but his replacement needs to be full-time. The LMS is expanding its activities, and we have a nice new office, larger than before, to work with; soon we will have a new website too: we need more staff-hours at the office than ever before.
We need someone who has an understanding of the work we are doing, with adminstrative ability. There aren't that many people around who fit that description: if you do, we want to hear from you!
Here is the LMS press release. There are adverts in the Catholic press this weekend.
The LMS wishes to appoint a full-time General Manager will be responsible for the day to day administration and development of the Society as directed by the Committee. The post is based in the LMS’s office in Holborn, London WC2. Applicants will have excellent managerial and communication skills and a proven track record of success. They will also have a knowledge and love of the Traditional liturgy and movement. The salary and pension package is in the range of £35K to £40K.
Much of the work involves the co-ordination and organisation of flagship national/international events including training conferences, the LMS AGM and the production of the annual Accounts, major Masses and liturgical events with national importance. It also involves maintaining and developing contacts with the hierarchy, diocesan authorities, Traditional Catholic bodies in England and abroad and the Traditional priestly and monastic orders. The General Manager will develop the LMS’s Seminarians Fund in order to assist vocations.
The General Manager will also make strategic recommendations to the Committee, particularly concerning development, the generation of increased publicity, membership and income, and the timely control of expenditure. He/she will oversee and administer legacy generation work and will support the Society’s network of diocesan representatives.
This position will entail some evening and weekend work, and travel, both UK and internationally.
A job description and details of the application process are available from the LMS office at 11-13 Macklin Street, London WCB 5NH. Tel: 020 7404 7284.
