APPLICATIONS ARE INVITED 

FOR THE POST OF
REPRESENTATIVE OF THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY TO THE HOLY SEE AND DIRECTOR OF THE ANGLICAN CENTRE IN ROME 

The Archbishop of Canterbury and the Governors of the Anglican Centre in Rome wish to appoint a new Representative of the Archbishop of Canterbury to the Holy See and Director of the Anglican Centre in Rome to succeed the The Most Revd David Moxon KNZM who is retiring in June 2017 after four years in the post. 
 
Replacing Archbishop David Moxon involves finding an Anglican bishop with the experience and stature required to represent the Archbishop of Canterbury at this opportune time in Anglican / Roman Catholic relationships.  The post-holder acts as a two way ambassador between the Vatican and both the Archbishop of Canterbury and the wider Anglican Communion.  The post-holder is also the Director of the Anglican Centre in Rome and as a consequence the role is multi-layered, binding together ambassadorial, educational, pastoral and interpretive elements. The person needs to be theologically able with good linguistic ability.  A knowledge of Italian is preferable and a willingness and ability to learn Italian is essential.  Accommodation is provided at the Anglican Centre in Rome, which occupies a large apartment within Palazzo Doria Pamphilj at the heart of historic Rome.
 
The Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Revd Justin Welby paid tribute to David Moxon:

We have indeed been fortunate to have Archbishop Sir David Moxon as Director of the Centre for the past four years, and concurrently as my representative to the Holy See. David's experience as a Primate, and uniquely, in his case, as Anglican Co-Chair of ARCIC, has strengthened the Centre's standing and profile enormously. Building on the excellent work of his predecessor, David has pioneered joint work on practical social ethical issues. He has strengthened links with the Papal household through a number of events where he has accompanied the Holy Father in blessing the faithful of all churches. His work stands his successor in good stead to build further.
