CSAN is the official agency of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales in tackling the root causes of poverty and injustice affecting people living in these countries. We’re facing a steep rise in deep poverty, large numbers of refugees, and significant pressures on social, economic, and Church resources. In 2021, CSAN launched its three-year strategy to extend the social mission of the Church in a post-Covid society.

In this new role, you will bring a professional track record in research to extend insights on poverty and social action in England and Wales, and contribute to forming compelling communications with our many stakeholders. You will also provide vital administrative support to create a smooth experience for participants in the Caritas Academy (England and Wales), and for wider events as part of our national convening role.

CSAN expects all those working with the charity to share its commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk of harm.
