Integral’s Occupational Requirement
Integral has a distinctively Christian ethos and purpose, having grown out of Tearfund in the UK which was founded by the UK Evangelical Alliance. Integral’s fundamental purpose is to serve Jesus Christ by uniting our Members in order to better combat poverty. All our Members share Christian beliefs and aim to bring good news to the poor in this world. They do this through demonstrating and proclaiming the Christian gospel for the whole person through Christian relief and development. A core conviction is that our work will not prosper unless we pray about it and we treat our work as part of our worship to God.
In order to achieve our mission and to maintain our ethos, it is vital that every Secretariat staff member is committed to Integral’s vision, mission and values and is actively working in accordance with our evangelical beliefs. As an organisation we aspire to combining professional excellence infused with passion for and commitment to Christ. We therefore seek to work in line with biblical principles and teaching and to seek God’s guidance in prayer in everything that we do. Through our practice of employing only committed Christians we have nurtured a working environment where Secretariat staff are committed to and united in achieving our mission.
Essential aspects of work for all Secretariat staff include participation in and leadership of spiritual sessions of worship, prayer, Bible study and reflection, both as a Secretariat and in Integral meetings. We believe this is fundamental to the achievement of our mission.
We therefore regard it as a genuine occupational requirement that this position is held by a committed Christian. The position holder must support the aims and objectives of the Alliance and be committed to the Christian ethos and vision of Integral. We believe that the conditions in part 3, Schedule 9 of the Equality Act 2010 have been met and that there is a prima facie case that the successful candidate will be a practising Christian.
