Hereford Cathedral is looking for an Administration Officer to support the work of the Dean and Chapter in managing the administration of the Cathedral and its charities.

You will bring a broad range of skills and experience in administration and as a high-level PA, and your excellent attention to detail will enable you to take accurate minutes at meetings and prepare all related documents, as well as carrying out executive tasks to ensure the continued development of the Cathedral’s organisation and structures. Such project work will allow your excellent organisational skills and adaptability to shine. As the Administration Officer, you will hold sensitive and confidential information so high levels of integrity and discretion are top personal attributes for this role. 

Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer/Chapter Clerk with functional reporting to the Dean, you will work closely with the senior management of the Cathedral, both clergy and lay, and have the interpersonal skills to work collaboratively with people at all levels throughout the Cathedral.

There is a sense in which this post might be considered vocational, so if you are someone seeking a diverse and challenging role, working with a small team of committed people – lay and ordained – in a stunning historic building in a truly beautiful part of the country which offers real quality of life, then this might just be for you.

The working hours are 37.5 hours per week, generally Monday to Friday 09.00 – 17.00 but with occasional out of hours work in evenings or at weekends.
