As a Cathedral Welcomer you are the first person to meet and greet our visitors and are the point of reference for information and help. We pride ourselves on the warmth of our welcome to visitors regardless of whether they live two minutes away or have just flown in from the other side of the world.

You would usually give three hours of your time, morning or afternoon on a weekly basis answering enquiries, pointing visitors to information about the building or about future events, directing them to exhibitions or to our Visitor Centre, showing them where they can light a candle or where they can sit to reflect quietly. If you want to volunteer with a friend- we can make sure that you are allocated the same slot so that you can enjoy the experience together. We are looking for friendly, open personalities with and an interest in meeting some of the 170,000 visitors who pass through our doors each year.
