Our commitment

As a Christian organisation, we believe you were created with a unique character. You have gifts and abilities that are all your own. So we're willing to explore how what you have might fit what we need.

The checklist

We know there's no such thing as the perfect candidate. You don't have to tick every box on the job description before you can even think of applying to work for us. If you think you've got most of what we want and you're excited about what we're doing, go ahead.

It's personal

You have a life outside work, and we want you to be able to live it well. So we're happy to talk to you about flexible working hours and working from home. We aren't impressed if you respond to emails at midnight.

Learn and grow

When you're trained in a new skill, or learn a different perspective, it benefits you and it benefits us. We're committed to making it possible for everyone to flourish and be the best they can be, with a huge variety of learning resources available.

Together and apart

We believe in home working where it's appropriate, and during lockdown we made that work really well. But we know how important it is to meet face to face, too. We're committed to making the office an enriching environment, where people are glad to be.

Celebrating difference

Universal acceptance for everyone, everywhere is at the heart of our organisation. We promote diversity of thought, culture and background, which connects the entire Bible Society family.  As such, Bible Society is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. We value diversity and aspire to reflect this in our workforce. We welcome applications from people representing all sections of the community.

Level ground

We want you to bring your best to the application and selection process. If you need us to make any adjustments for that to happen, let us know and we'll be glad to help.
