The appointee will also be responsible for a group of new Research Volunteers, assisting them with their research into individual residents of the Cloisters.

Hours 20 hours a week 2–3 days a week (due to the nature of the project, hours week-to-week may vary).

Hereford Cathedral seeks to be a fully inclusive and accessible employer. The cathedral has recently undergone an access audit and is continually seeking to make improvements.

All new staff and volunteers receive Accessibility Training, which covers a range of conditions and impairments, including chronic conditions. All staff and volunteers also participate in Dementia Friends information sessions, and become Dementia Friends. These initiatives ensure that the workplace is aware and understanding of any conditions or impairments that colleagues may have.

We do not ask applicants to disclose any accessibility-related details at the time of application, but we do ask those invited to interview to share any access needs so that we can ensure that the interview location and set up is accessible.
