For thirty years we have been in the vibrant, multicultural and leafy Moseley district, with good access to the facilities of Birmingham city centre. We are now looking for another Triratna Buddhist - with some understanding of building maintenance and project management, financial sense, and the ability to work effectively in a team and with volunteers, to join the six men and women running our large and thriving Buddhist Centre.

We all have to respond flexibly to the needs of the situation, but the primary focus of this job working with management, volunteers and contractors to plan, organise, oversee and, sometimes, undertake necessary building maintenance and desirable improvements around the Buddhist Centre and our four residential properties, plus routine housekeeping at the Buddhist Centre itself. We expect, over time, to develop the range of responsibilities in the light of the skills, interests and aptitudes of the person recruited.
