The Cathedral, Cathedral House and Cathedral are of great significance to the Church in Salford. As well as being the 'Mother Church' of the diocese and the seat of the Bishop of Salford the Cathedral has a thriving parish community. It is the place where the wider diocesan community gather to celebrate Mass and other liturgies important for the life of the Church in Salford Diocese.
Cathedral House is the home to the parish and retired clergy as well has having facilities for social events and meetings and the Cathedral Centre is the administrative hub for the Central Services of the Diocese with around 90 people based there delivering a wide range of practical and administrative support to the Diocese as a whole. The Centre has several meeting rooms for internal and external conferences.
Plans are also currently being developed for a building located adjacent to the Cathedral House and Cathedral Centre which is likely to be for mixed-use of residential and office/archive storage. The purpose of this role is to unify and integrate the aspects of operational management across the various buildings in the complex to ensure a consistently high standard across all premises.
This is a newly created post to support both the Cathedral Dean, responsible for the Cathedral and House, and the Director of Administration and Personnel, responsible for the Centre and the premises currently under development. It is designed to provide appropriate leadership and management for those staff responsible for providing housekeeping, maintenance and catering services across the entire campus to ensure the highest standards of safety and hospitality both for the day-to-day operation of the facilities but also for special events and meetings.
The ideal candidate will be highly motivated, flexible and innovative with a can-do approach. They will be able to quickly establish effective working relationships and focus a broad team on achieving key objectives efficiently.
