Verger
£15,099 per annum

(35 hours weekly)

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 willing 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 8th November and interviews will take place at our offices on Thursday 21st November. Shortlisted candidates will be informed by Wednesday 13th November.
