with responsibility for the Cathedral’s learning programme and historic Library
Chaplain of St Oswald’s Hospital (Almshouse)
The Crown Appointments Secretary, the Bishop of Worcester, and the Dean and Chapter of Worcester seek applications for the combined post of Residentiary Canon, with responsibility for the Cathedral’s learning programme and historic Library, and Chaplain of St Oswald’s Hospital, an almshouse in the city centre.
We welcome applications from all. The cathedral clergy team at present lacks both women and people of UKME/GMH background. While the appointment will be made on merit, we particularly encourage applications from these groups.
We are offering this as a full-time post, but we could also explore a less than full-time appointment with interested candidates.
We can offer you help in discerning your calling to this role, and making an application, in a webinar for interested candidates on Thursday 4 August from 12 noon to 1 p.m. Participants in the workshop will be able to remain anonymous while hearing more from the Dean about the role and from the Crown Appointments Secretary about the appointment process. It is however not necessary to attend this webinar in order to make an application.
The deadline for applications is 12 noon on Friday 19 August.
The selection and interview process will be held from 5 p.m. on Sunday 4 September to the afternoon of Monday 5 September.

Closing date: 19 August 2022
