Christians Against Poverty (CAP) has a network of debt help centres throughout the UK, each one run in partnership with a local church or churches. Each of these centres is led by a Debt Centre Manager who is responsible for the successful operation of that centre. The Newquay Area Debt Centre will fall under St Gregory’s Church.

The candidate must have a full UK Driving License and access to their own car and be willing to travel for client visits.

St Gregory’s Church will be the employer of this role. Therefore, the role will be line managed by the St Gregory’s Church Leader. The Debt Centre Manager will need to maintain good relationships with agencies potentially referring clients and churches across the area
