Executive Recruitment

Welcome from The Very Revd Dominic Barrington, Dean-Designate of York

Dear Applicant

Welcome and thank you for your interest in the role of Chapter Steward and Chief Operating Officer for York Minster.

York Minster is a thriving visitor attraction, a heritage building of national significance, a central focus of the Church of England in the north but, above all, we are a living community of faithful Christians who sustain and continue a deeply-rooted tradition of 900 years of the worshipping life of the cathedral. It is both a place and a people: a repository of some of the finest mediaeval glass, stone and architecture; and a pilgrim people learning to seek and serve Jesus Christ in the world. Everything we do here – from welcoming 700,000 visitors annually, breaking new ground in visitor engagement, to offering music of the highest quality - serves the purpose of the Minster’s life, which is to invite everyone to discover God’s love as it has been revealed in Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

I hope this microsite gives you a flavour of the role of our Chapter Steward and I look forward to receiving your application if you feel you are the right person to take on this critical role.
