3. Durham Cathedral Shop

Advertised on facebook, Durham Cathedral have a vacancy for a sales assistant to help in the recently resurrected Cathedral shop:

The Shop at Durham Cathedral, which serves visitors, churches and academics, is seeking to appoint a sales person to work in the Shop and the Cathedral. The Shop moves back into the Great Kitchen, which is currently undergoing repair, in April and the Cathedral is keen to restore it to its former position as a leading theological resource for the Diocese and University as well as a popular gift shop for visitors to the Cathedral.

Experience of working in a shop is not essential so much as willingness to contribute enthusiastically to this part of the Cathedral’s ministry, good people skills and sound theological knowledge that can be used to help people with their questions about books.

This is a full time post (37.5 hours) but could be shared between two people. It will involve taking a share in weekend and occasional evening working. Initially it will be for six months, reviewable at the end of that period, with a salary of £6.20 per hour.

If you are interested please send your cv and a letter, indicating why you are interested in the position and whether you are looking for full time or part time employment, to Philip Davies at the Chapter Office chapter.clerk AT, 0191 386 4266) by 19 April.
