Opportunities for employment advertised directly to SCA members.

Increasingly, employers are requiring SCA membership (or eligibility for) when seeking to employ spiritual carers in their organisations. Standards of Practice and Codes of Conduct that members agree to abide by on application, are seen as vital in delivery of excellence in spiritual care.
