Winchester Cathedral is a truly unique and special place to work. We live by our values of Openness, Excellence and Kindness in all that we do. Like all major heritage attractions, there is an awful lot going on behind the scenes. Our community of clergy, staff and volunteers support the Cathedral’s mission, preserve and maintain the fabric of the building, and provide an excellent experience for over 130,000 annual visitors.

We employ around eighty permanent staff and offer seasonal vacancies in the Gift Shop, Christmas Market and Flower Festival.

The Cathedral is supported by around eight hundred volunteers – click here to find out about our volunteer opportunities.

There can’t be many better locations to work. Situated in the heart of historic Winchester, the Cathedral is within easy reach of shops and places to eat, and has its own on-site Refectory. The city itself is beautiful and bustling, with excellent road and rail links.

We offer excellent benefits and actively invest in developing our staff.

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and vulnerable adults and expect all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. We will ensure that all our recruitment and selection practices reflect this commitment.

All successful candidates will be subject to pre-employment checks, including Safeguarding training and, where appropriate, either a basic or enhanced DBS check.
