Current opportunities

Choral Scholars

Choral scholarships (countertenor, contralto, tenor, bass) are normally held in conjunction with degree courses at Exeter University, (any subject), provided that lecture times do not clash seriously with choir commitments. The Scholarships are normally tenable for three years, though this may be extended for an extra year in certain circumstances. The scholarship is £3,620 per annum in 2019 and Cathedral accommodation may be available for Choral Scholars at a modest rent.

Organ Scholar

The Dean and Chapter of Exeter Cathedral wishes to appoint an organ scholar for the academic year 2019/20. The appointment is for one year, but may in certain circumstances be extended for a further year. The position will be ideally suited to a recent graduate seeking to gain experience of the daily duties of a busy cathedral musician, though applications from suitably qualified ‘gap’ year students (i.e. pre-University) would be welcome also. £8,250 p.a. plus single accommodation (provided free of rent and council tax).

All applications must be received by 12 o'clock noon on Monday 17 September. Receipt of all applications will be acknowledged.
Suitably qualified candidates will be invited to interview on Monday 24th September. Candidates would be required from 9am until around 3.30pm (overnight accommodation on Sunday 23rd will be provided if required).
