St Paul’s draws together a very diverse set of activities, projections and aspirations. It is the Cathedral of the Diocese of London and the seat of its Bishop, a national church and an international spiritual focus, a space for worship and holiness, a place of debate and challenge, an icon of resilience in the face of adversity, an architectural heritage centre, a partner in the City of London, and a commercial enterprise. In addition to holding four services every day (five on Sundays), St Paul’s is open for sight-seeing six days a week, and last year welcomed over 800,000 paying visitors.
The Works Manager is a key role within the Works Department, assisting the Clerk of the Works in the creation and delivery of the Annual Works Programme for St Paul’s Cathedral and its associated buildings, and deputising in their absence. The Treasurer is the Chapter member with oversight of this area of work.
