Vacancies

 

 We are currently seeking volunteers for all roles. Please contact Gill@guildford-cathedral.org for further details.

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.

 

 

ORGAN SCHOLAR 2019-20

The appointment, if ratified following a three month probationary period, will be for a period of nine months commencing on 1st September 2019 (ie ending 31st August 2020), and the successful candidate is likely to be either a recent graduate or a ‘gap year’ student.  He or she will already play to a good standard and will have experience of choir accompaniment. The main Cathedral organ was refurbished alongside the Heritage Lottery Fund project, and rededicated in March 2018. There is, additionally, an organ in the Lady Chapel, and a piano in the Song School, which may be used for practice.
