Are you a pastoral priest or chaplain who would enjoy care of a community without the responsibility of running a church? 

We are looking for someone with a deeply pastoral heart to love and care for the congregations and community around the cathedral. This post is essential to enable the Dean and Chapter to improve and develop pastoral care and may suit an ordained self-supporting priest in the Church of England, possibly recently retired, but may also appeal to lay ministers with extraordinary pastoral abilities.

This is a fixed term 3-year appointment on a House for Duty basis. 

The appointment of the successful candidate is subject to the receipt of two satisfactory references and will also require a satisfactory DBS with barred list check. To apply for this role please click here to visit Church of England Pathways. 

Fully completed application forms must be received before midday on the closing date of Friday 7 June 2024. Please note that we do not shortlist from CV-only submissions. Interviews will be held on Monday 17 June 2024.
