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.
This role focuses on the administration in a busy department responsible for our people - employees, clergy and volunteers - and their training, while also supporting internal communications. The post-holder is responsible for timely, accurate and efficient administration, logistics, and record-keeping, including electronic database up-dating, assisting with regular staff news and internal bulletins and providing cover for our Chapter House reception. The Canon Pastor is the Chapter member with oversight of this area of work. The post-holder reports to the Senior HR Advisor, under the direction of the Head of HR, and works as part of a small collaborative team where tasks are also allocated by the Training and Development Officer.
