Sisters of St Joseph of Peace  


The Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace was founded in Nottingham in 1884 with a focus to promote peace through justice. Over the years the sisters have served in social work, health care, education and action for justice. 


The UK headquarters has for many years been located at Sacred Heart Convent in Rearsby, Leicestershire. We are in the process of selling this property and plan to rent office space in Nottingham. We currently have convents in Nottingham, Leicester, Cleethorpes, Bradford and London, with individual sisters living in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Haiti. 


The Sisters of St. Joseph of Peace are looking for a Business Manager to fulfil a demanding role part-time 2 to 3 days per week (but may increase according to need) located in Nottingham.  Responsibilities include overseeing all financial activities, human resources management, and coordination of maintenance needs of properties owned and rented by the Sisters. 


The successful candidate will have a Degree or Professional Qualification in an appropriate discipline, relevant work experience and experience in Sage 50C and Microsoft Excel.  


The Business Manager will work closely with our Congregation Chief Financial Officer resident in USA and liaise with the Congregation Treasurer, also resident in USA, with our UK Finance Committee and with our Trustees. We are a registered charity with CIO status and the Business Manager would ideally be expected to be familiar with UK Charity Law.
