Administration Assistant

Job Description

Guildford Cathedral is a sacred space and a community of people who engage with God and the wider world for the common good.  

We do this by being a warm hearted community open to God, to all, to growth and to transformation.  Over 100,000 visitors come to the Cathedral each year and our Cathedral ‘community’ comprises thousands who feel close the Cathedral because of historical connection, the purchase of a brick in the 1950s, their membership of the worshipping congregations or staff and volunteers.

The Cathedral is led by the Dean with the Cathedral Chapter which is akin to a Board of Directors of charity trustees. The Chief Operating Officer leads the small lay staff and the Office Manager has overall responsibility for administration.

The Chapter wishes to appoint an Administration Assistant with effect from 10 September 2018 to assist the Office Manager in the smooth running of the Cathedral administration.
