This is an ideal opportunity for someone wishing to join Zimbabwe’s leading independent school as Senior Chaplain.

The Peterhouse Group of Schools, with approximately 1,100 pupils, is looking to appoint a Senior Chaplain for Springvale House, Peterhouse Girls and Peterhouse Boys. Peterhouse was founded as an Anglican independent boarding school and therefore the successful applicant will be an ordained priest of the Anglican Communion and will have a Degree/Diploma in Theology or Pastoral Ministry.

The Chaplain’s role is essential in shaping and fostering the Christian ethos and culture within the Peterhouse Group so the applicant must have personal experience of an independent school. He will also be able to demonstrate his ability and experience in mentoring and leadership training for young people from various cultural backgrounds.

The successful applicant will be a strong communicator, able to engage and hold an audience of 500 teenagers and teach smaller groups, and will be experienced in the pastoral care of young people and adults.

The successful applicant will also be in sympathy with the ethos of Peterhouse and will understand the culture and commitment required in a full boarding school.

Applications should be sent to Mr Howard Blackett, Rector, Peterhouse School, P/Bag 3741, Marondera, Zimbabwe (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..) from whom further details can be obtained. The application itself should consist of a full CV, names and contact details of two referees and a covering letter of no more than one side of A4 outlining why the candidate believes that he is ideally suited for the post.

Further information about Peterhouse can be found on the school’s website

The closing date for applications is Monday 20 March 2017.
