Digital Support Officer Vacancy

Over the last year Hereford Cathedral has begun a programme of digital development, aiming to increase its outreach and grow its business as the region’s largest place of worship, tourist attraction and events venue. We now want to develop the progress made, not only by maintaining the volume of digital output, but also by improving our database management and working practices. We are therefore looking for an individual with a passion for digital systems and technology to help us transition into a more digitally confident organisation.

Hereford Cathedral has had to expand rapidly its digital offerings, and ways of working in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our website and social media channels have taken on a much more significant role in the way that we communicate with our wider cathedral community and we are now producing more digital content than ever before. As a result, our staff team have had to upskill and take on new responsibilities whilst the cathedral has been operating differently. Staff have participated in AMA Digital Heritage Lab workshops and training, and a digital strategy is in preparation. We now want to develop the progress made further, not only by maintaining this volume of digital output, but also by improving our database management and working practices.

Although this is a technology-based role, the successful candidate will also need to possess good interpersonal and communication skills, and be prepared to work flexibly in a small team. Based in the Cathedral offices in the city centre, you will work closely with our marketing and commercial teams to optimise the Cathedral’s use of digital technology.

This position will be a one-year fixed term contract. Benefits include an annual salary of approximately £19,000-£20,000 and a non-contributory pension scheme.

The closing date for applications is Friday 18 June at midday.

Please apply via the cathedral website
