The successful candidate will have exceptional people skills, a can do approach and the ability to think creatively when problem solving.

Bristol is the largest city in the South West and the Cathedral is set on College Green, at the centre of this modern, vibrant and diverse city. The city has much to celebrate and enjoy – with a vigorous business and cultural life and a strong festival tradition. Originally a trading and merchant port it has become a centre for financial and business services, creative industries, distribution and retail. The population is increasingly young and there is a strong BME population. The Cathedral has been a Christian presence in the city for nearly 900 years and is part of the wider Diocese of Bristol which extends from Swindon through South Gloucestershire and North Wiltshire. We want to reach out to the city and make people welcome.

Our vision is to:

  • Follow Jesus Christ
  • Serve Others
  • Transform Communities
  • Worship God and
  • Support our Bishops and Diocese

The Cathedral has four values which are to be Open, Generous, Creative and Brave. We expect all members of the Cathedral team to act in a way that reflects these values.
