You will carry out a range of office management tasks, ranging from ensuring that the offices are kept clean, tidy and supplied, keeping the in-house diary bookings and the calendar of services, events and tours into the Cathedral diary system, up to date.
You will also provide administrative support to the team, including managing and updating the Cathedral diary system and maintaining the main Cathedral database and directories, recording staff leave and maintaining Covid security.
The Cathedral is planning a refurbishment and programme of decoration of the reception area and offices in 2022 and the post-holder will play an important part in the smooth running and successful delivery of this project.
This is a varied role, and you should enjoy being involved with a wide range of tasks and people, and finding solutions to problems.

Good communication skills including a confident telephone manner and excellent writing skills will be essential, as will proven administrative experience in an office environment.

A good team player with ability to relate equally well to paid and voluntary staff, and being a good listener able to deal sensitively with visitors and enquirers who may vulnerable are important qualities to have for this role.
We would want you to share our interest in the life and activities of the Cathedral, Bankside and London generally, and we welcome those of other or no faith, but require sympathy with the aims and objectives of the Christian Church and the Anglican tradition.
