Might this be for you or for someone you know?

The role of Verger is crucial to the fulfilment of the Cathedral’s mission and ministry. We are looking for a committed Christian to take on the important responsibilities of being a Verger in Coventry Cathedral. The right person is more important than previous experience. We need someone with a good level of fitness, who can demonstrate that they have a mature attitude, are reliable and are able to work under pressure, with minimum supervision. The Verger team works closely with the Cathedral Ministers and cooperatively with colleagues, staff and volunteers across all departments of the Cathedral.

The post will offer fixed weekly hours of 35, but as a team player, you will need to be wiling to operate flexible shifts with your colleagues to provide cover on the rota.

The post is subject to DBS clearance, and will include weekend and bank holiday working.

The closing date for applications is noon on Friday 21st April 2017 and interviews will take place at the Cathedral Offices on Wednesday 3rd May. Shortlisted candidates will be informed by Thursday 27th April.

Come and join us as a Verger!

Although some sources are saying that Knife Angel (see here) has already arrived in Coventry, we are not expecting this amazing sculpture to be with us until the week beginning March 11th. It will be here until mid-April.
