The Dean and Chapter of St Paul’s Cathedral seek to appoint a Head Verger (Chief ceremonial and operational officer).
St Paul’s Cathedral serves eighteen Sunday and weekday congregations; federal, state, civic and diocesan organisations and individuals; local schools and colleges; arts providers; community groups and associations; and members of the public.
A team of vergers (the Cathedral’s ceremonial and operational staff) ensure that the Cathedral’s fabric and fittings are maintained properly; that the Cathedral is prepared for services and special events; and that worshippers, visitors and pilgrims are able to enjoy the peace of a safe and welcoming environment. They Cathedral’s vergers provide security during opening hours, and ensure the Cathedral is secured out of opening hours.
The Cathedral now seeks to recruit a full-time Head Verger to coordinate the work of the Cathedral’s verger team. The full-time head verger will work with a team of experienced part-time and casual vergers, and will join a friendly, diverse and hardworking team of paid and volunteer Cathedral staff.
