Sample Role Descriptions

These example role descriptions, sourced from various places and formatted into the CofE style, are designed to provide you with a suitable template and format to create role descriptions for your own parish. We would ask you to carefully describe the relevant duties, adding/amending as necessary to match the description to the individual role that is carried out in your local context.

PLEASE NOTE THAT WHERE THESE ROLE DESCRIPTIONS STATE A 5 YEAR RENEWAL PERIOD FOR DBS CHECKS, THIS SHOULD BE AMENDED TO 3 YEARS - IN LINE WITH POLICY FROM JANUARY 2022.

NB: If a sample role description is missing and you have a version please share it with us so that we can make it available to others!

For any further support with this please contact either Assistant DSA Delia Stokes or DBS Administrator Liz Toone.

Below is a helpful Safer Recruitment and People Management video for use in parishes as required, to help with implementing new guidance and policy.
