support our work:meet the team!
Centre Manager at the Manchester Buddhist Centre (MBC)
The MBC is a vibrant and growing Buddhist centre in Manchester’s bohemian Northern Quarter. It attracts sangha members from across Greater Manchester and beyond.
The post holder will become a member of the Heart Kula, which consists of the centre team plus the Chairman and the Mitra convenors. This is a friendly, committed and harmonious team based right livelihood, which places work at the very heart of Dharma practice. The Heart Kula meets for half a day each week to practice together and share our understanding of our vision as well as of our individual and collective work.
As Centre Manager you will have an overview of, and take responsibility for, the management of the centre team. You will initiate, lead and be involved in a number of exciting current and future projects.
You will be in a significant position of influence within the MBC sangha, contributing to the vision of the MBC and its spiritual direction. Given this, ideally we would like the post holder to be an Order member, but will also consider applications from experienced Mitras training for ordination.
The role may include teaching the Dharma and meditation if you have experience in these areas.
The post is full-time (35 hours per week).
Pay rate: Annual support: £14,250.
Annual leave: 40 days includes all bank holidays.
Retreat allowance: £1800.
Health Plan: you will be a member of Simply Health, which contributes to the costs for dental care, opticians, physiotherapy, osteopathy, acupuncture and other health benefits.
Closing date: 30th June 2018.
Interviews: week commencing 9th July 2018.
Ideally, the post holder will start early December 2018 to allow for a 2-3 weeks hand-over period with the current post-holder.
