Why work for us?

Wakefield Cathedral is a forward-thinking cathedral, eager to fulfill its potential as outlined in our recent strategic document Firm in Hope, a ten-year plan highlighting the role of the cathedral across the city, the diocese and beyond and the opportunities that lay ahead.

Our values of Joyful, Generous and Inclusive aren’t just a random selection of words, they embody the spirit, togetherness and values which each of our employees demonstrate on a day to day basis.

When working at Wakefield Cathedral you will be working in one of just 42 cathedrals across England, supporting the rich variety of work which the cathedral gets involved with every day in the most amazing of buildings.

What can you expect?

  • A close-knit team

    A close-knit team with plenty of opportunities to develop – as a small team it is important that we look after each other and this is imperative to working at Wakefield Cathedral. The broad tasks you may be faced with will give you some great, yet often challenging, opportunities, developing your personal and professional skills along the way.

  • A unique experience

    There is nothing quite like working at a cathedral. We focus our outreach on the “three C’s”: Christ. Culture. Community and each day you may experience new scenarios and new tasks, always keeping you on your toes.

  • A busy yet rewarding role

    Don’t assume that because we are a church you will be in for an easy ride. We expect the highest standards of effort and performance to help us achieve our goals and reach our vision, but that’s not to say you won’t enjoy your role – we are always keen to make sure our staff are happy, motivated and loving what they do.
