The Cathedral is seeking to recruit a part time Finance Assistant to assist in the smooth running of the Cathedral’s finances including looking after the sales and purchase ledgers, bank reconciliations and other day to day transactions, and supporting payroll and financial accounting.

This will involve working in partnership with people in our Cathedral community, across staff teams and with volunteers, as well as engaging with people outside the Cathedral. The role works alongside and reports to the full time Head of Finance.

It is anticipated the successful applicant will work an average of 20 hours a week over the course of the year to fit with the Cathedral’s financial cycle. Reduced hours could be worked in the school holidays if this was helpful. The role is office based.
