York Minster is one of the world’s most magnificent cathedrals. Since the 7th century, the Minster has been at the centre of Christianity in the north of England and today remains a thriving church rooted in the daily offering of worship and prayer. As well as being an active place of worship, we are also a visitor attraction, a Centre of Excellence for Heritage crafts and we provide stewardship of the historic fabric of the York Minster estate, precinct, and collections.

We have a clear Vision, Mission, and Strategy that we are translating into meaningful action and impact. We are embarking on the delivery of an ambitious plan and are seeking a Strategic Planning and Programming Assistant to form part of the new Strategic Planning and Programming Team to help support the delivery of this plan. The Strategic Planning and Programming Team will be working on the planning, mobilisation, and delivery of numerous and varied initiatives across the organisation as well as supporting and developing York Minster’s busy programme of services, events, and exhibitions.

We’re looking for someone who can support the efficient operation of the team, with great administrative skills and an eye for detail. You will administer the complex Minster Diary and support the process for turning ideas into activities. You’ll work collaboratively with the teams involved in programming and delivery, as well as supporting the wider organisation through the strategic planning framework.

This is an opportunity to support the delivery of positive change and innovation which will make a material difference to this unique religious, heritage, and cultural setting.
