“Media vicar” to counsel Salford movers

The Church of England is to appoint a full time ???media vicar??? to help BBC staff handle the trauma of moving to Salford Quays.

The Diocese of Manchester has advertised for ???an experienced vicar??? to be based in a chaplaincy called The Anchor in the main MediaCity UK headquarters.

The successful candidate will be tasked with helping to ???shape the community, spirituality and mission??? for all MediaCity workers, including BBC staff, and providing ???solutions to meet the creative and production needs of media professionals.

He or she will be paid nearly ??30,000 and interviews are due to take place towards the end of next month.

A church source said: ???This is not the BBC employing a love-boat chaplain. The position will be paid for by the Church of England. But imagine what sort of counselling you might need for a major.???

Diocese spokesman David Marshall added: ???It comes as a great surprise that people can be traumatised by moving to the North, the home of Coronation Street.???

Another G&T vicar?
