Lichfield Cathedral is entering an exciting stage of its 1300 year history. The Cathedral has embarked on a major period of fundraising with the aim to raise £10 million for the regeneration of the Cathedral and the Close from 2014 to 2023. Alongside this, the Cathedral has an ambition to increase the number of people attending services, increase the number of visitors and through positive engagement deliver high standards of support and care to our congregation, pilgrims and visitors.
We are looking to appoint a full time Visitor Services Assistant on a six-month contract who can work on the Visitor Services desk and cover the Cathedral Gift Area.
Visitor Services is the front line of the Cathedral’s interaction with the visitors – ensuring an excellent welcome to all and eliciting a donation for something that is free. We also arrange guided tours and group visits.
