Assistant Director of Music
£13,685 per annum
Coventry Cathedral is well known internationally as a striking example of twentieth century church architecture and for its ministry of reconciliation. It has a committed core of worshippers who delight in the combination of traditional and contemporary liturgy and music and it attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors both from this country and abroad. We are seeking to appoint someone who will join our team of musicians to contribute positively to our fine musical tradition as we reach out to a generation not used to church and work towards City of Culture 2021.
The post offers an average of 19.5 hours per week, spread over three to six days and worked mostly over the weeks of term time, together with Christmas, Holy Week and Easter. You will need to operate flexibly to fit the needs of services and choristers.
We may be in a position to offer accommodation to the successful candidate at a competitive rate. There may also be an opportunity to undertake paid employment with the Coventry Cathedral Chorus, which rehearses on Tuesdays at 7.30pm.
The post is subject to DBS clearance, and will include weekend and bank holiday working.
The closing date for applications is noon on Thursday 14 January 2021 and interviews will take place at the Cathedral on Tuesday 26 January or Wednesday 27 January 2021. Shortlisted candidates will be informed on Saturday 16 January 2021.
