Permanent part-time, 21hrs per week based on a flexible working pattern

For the first time in over 40 years, we are looking to recruit a new librarian to care for and promote the amazing book collection housed in the West Wing of the Bishops Palace. Our books are rare and precious and kept in a safe, climate controlled environment. But we don’t want this to stop people having access to this unique collection. We are looking for someone who can combine professional standards of care with a passion for making collections accessible to everyone. As the Cathedral enters a phase of redevelopment and renewal, the role of librarian will be key to unlocking our treasures.

We are looking for a Cloister Club Co-ordinator to develop the work with children and families in our community and beyond, to enable them to feel fully part of the Cathedral community. You will be a committed Christian, sympathetic to the cathedral’s liberal catholic ethos and have a qualification or clear expertise – and experience – in working with primary school age children. You will relish the opportunity to develop Cloister Club, have experience of working with volunteers and have a good knowledge of safeguarding.

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.
