Assistant Virger

The Dean and Chapter wish to appoint an Assistant Virger. Virging is an important part of the Cathedral’s mission.  The role of virger is to be the face of the Cathedral to visitors and worshippers on a daily basis, to offer a warm welcome to all who come here, to prepare for services, to lead processions, to prepare staging for events, to carry out cleaning and some maintenance of the Cathedral, and often, to manage the first response in a crisis.

Artists Residency

St Albans Cathedral is inviting applications for a summer residency for a creative artist with experience in Community Engagement.  We are therefore seeking an Artist in Residence who is able to engage with the history and architecture of the building creatively, and who can put engagement with the community at the heart of their residency.  As the walls of the Cathedral bear the marks of numerous historical 'graffiti', some stretching back the sixteenth century,  we wish for this residency to be particularly focused on the theme of 'graffiti art'.
