The Cathedral Chapter is seeking to recruit a new Parish Administrator. This is a busy role at the centre of congregational life in a thriving parish and Cathedral. The role involves providing administrative and secretarial support to the Sub Dean, managing arrangements for the occasional offices (baptisms, weddings and funerals), supporting the administration required for diocesan confirmation services, acting as secretary to the Abbey Assembly and working with other office staff to provide cover and to produce printed material as required.
Learning is at the heart of the mission and activity of St Albans Cathedral. The Learning Department, headed by the Canon Chancellor, brings together three strands of learning: work with schools, informal community and family learning, adult learning.
The role of the Learning Administrator is to support the work and the growth of the Cathedral’s learning activities, in particular by being an initial point of contact, being responsible for booking school visits, space management, general office duties, financial tasks, publicity, diary entries, record keeping, and supporting the Learning committee and working groups.
St Albans Cathedral is looking for friendly and committed volunteers to help our team deliver events to the wider community. This is a great opportunity for those interested in the history and heritage of the Cathedral to share that enthusiasm with the general public! Help us to raise the profile of the Cathedral and share our many fantastic stories with new audiences.
By becoming a St Albans Cathedral volunteer, you will be provided with an induction and will be given all the training that you need. You will also receive:
• An annual volunteer ‘thank you’ event
• Access to volunteer training opportunities held by the Cathedral
• References to employers
