Job No: 134153
Location: Adelaide, SA

  • Exciting opportunity for an experienced Payroll Officer with a major community organisation!
  • Excellent remuneration $60,000 - $65,000 FTE plus super and onsite parking!
  • Part-time role (0.8 FTE) with the negotiable option of becoming full-time!

About the Organisation

The Lutheran Church of Australia (LCA), which includes the Lutheran Church of New Zealand (LCNZ), is a relatively small Christian denomination, with about 30,000 regular worshippers. By contrast, the worldwide Lutheran Church, with around 80 million adherents, is the second largest non-Catholic church (and the largest Protestant church) in the world. In Australia and New Zealand, there are more than 600 Lutheran congregations, about 520 pastors (including those who have retired) and more than 560 registered lay workers and other employees.

Lutherans have been in Australia and New Zealand for more than 150 years. Australian and New Zealand Lutheranism in the 21st century reflects the multicultural nature of our two nations. We are a culturally rich and colourful church. Congregations of people from Asian and European countries contribute to the cultural diversity of our church, and increasingly we are welcoming African people, primarily Sudanese, into our worshipping communities. The tagline of the Church, "where love comes to life", reflects the heart and soul of the Lutheran Church mission.
