Leicester Cathedral is vibrant and its vision is to be welcoming, prayerful and all inclusive.  This is a particularly exciting time following the reinterment of King Richard III, and the growing number of people visiting and worshipping in the Cathedral.  To achieve its vision, the Cathedral relies on an ever growing network of volunteers across the broad range of its work.  We are always looking to increase our team and in particular looking to recruit:

Volunteer Welcomers and Guides and helpers for our Schools team
We are looking to expand our team of welcomers and guides in the Cathedral and would also be interested to hear from those interested in helping the Schools team.

We are looking for people who can interact with visitors or school children and can easily fit into a friendly, committed group of volunteers and Cathedral staff. You will be given an induction and support from experienced volunteers. The number of hours committed will be flexible and variable, although a single volunteer session usually lasts around 3 hours.  Schools visits are typically 1-2 hours in length.

The Cathedral has a volunteer policy outlining the Cathedral’s commitment to the volunteers and the volunteers’ commitment to the Cathedral, which you can obtain on request. A role description for each of the roles is attached below.

Completed application forms should be emailed to the Volunteer Manager Rebecca Hale at rebecca.hale@leccofe.org or otherwise posted to St Martin’s House 7 Peacock Lane Leicester LE1 5PZ. Applicants will be asked to attend a formal interview at St Martins House before suitability can be determined.  For further information please ring Rebecca on 0116 261 5362.
