Minor Canon and Sacrist

The successful candidate will work with the other Minor Canons in a prominent role, sustaining and organising the busy worshipping life of Westminster Abbey, liaising effectively and diplomatically with diverse constituencies within the Abbey and among its many high-profile external partners.

Essential to this role is the ability to lead choral worship and a good eye for detail; interviews will therefore include a singing test and editorial exercise.

The post is open to priests of the Church of England or of a Church, in communion therewith, with at least three years’ experience of full-time stipendiary ministry. You will be working in a happy environment with gifted colleagues. To thrive in this environment you will need to be highly motivated, resilient, and committed to sharing responsibility.

Your application must be received no later than 9.00 am on Monday 10 February 2020.
