Working with us  –  current vacancies
Join the Team

From time to time vacancies arise in the Cathedral Team.  These will be advertised both here and in the public domain.  There are currently no vacancies. The application deadline for Canon Residentiary has been passed.

Canon Residentiary

The Dean in consultation with the Bishop wishes to appoint a full-time Residentiary Canon for Newport Cathedral.

This is an exciting time to join Newport Cathedral as a new team is being formed.

The role is both pastor and missioner: to develop the life and faith of the congregation as well as look beyond to draw in new people and broaden the demographic balance. This will also involve nurturing a rich combination of the existing and new styles of worship that will underpin the Cathedral’s life and witness.

We are looking for a mission-minded, open, relational and engaging person, someone who can think beyond the established, while working within it.

Newport is the gateway to South Wales with excellent road and rail links.

Closing date for applications is 12noon Friday 24th September 2021.

Interviews over Wednesday 20th and Thursday 21st October 2021 (both days).
