York Minster invites everyone to share God’s love through our welcome, worship, learning and work.
The development of a new mission and vision has identified the need for an experienced professional to join our strategic team to lead the world class welcome we offer to worshippers and visitors. You will be joining the Minster at an exciting time in its history.
This key role will lead a newly-formed team of security, visitor experience and verger staff and inspire them to work collaboratively putting the Minster’s mission, values and strategic purposes at the heart of all they do.

The successful candidate will have substantial experience of staff leadership, management and development and of playing a leading role in a complex organisation. You will have a proven track-record of delivering the highest standards of service in a visitor-facing institution, leading your colleagues by example.
You will be a skilled motivator and a sophisticated collaborator, inspired by the challenge of developing a world-class welcome within this stunning location.
