Trustees - Friends of Gloucester Cathedral

A unique voluntary opportunity for motivated and imaginative Trustees with a passion for heritage and cathedrals. Come and help us make history…


Gloucester Cathedral is one of the most significant heritage destinations in the South West. An historic place of worship which dates back over 1,300 years, it remains open for everyone, 365 days a year and continues to hold services every day. It is a sacred and holy place, a source of local pride and a site of rich history and world class music. The Friends of Gloucester Cathedral is a separate membership charity which aims to be the Cathedral’s principal partner and friend. Supported by over 1,000 individual members, we provide significant financial aid to a range of Cathedral projects on an annual basis. Through belonging and participation, we help the Cathedral to flourish, now and in the future.


The Roles We are looking to add three new members to our Board, including an Honorary Secretary and are seeking motivated and imaginative Trustees with a passion for heritage and the Cathedral. We are particularly interested in finding people with marketing (including social media), fundraising and governance experience.


This is a great opportunity to join a thriving organisation during an exciting period of development as we have plans in place to grow membership, increase income, and expand our events programme. The Cathedral has also just launched its new five-year vision and the Friends have a key role to play in helping to achieve it.


If you are enthused by the prospect of being part of a motivated team and making a real difference to the Cathedral, this could be the role for you. Time Commitment Up to four meetings per year, plus possible involvement in a committee. It is also hoped that Trustees will attend and represent the Friends at partnership events, meetings and receptions. Deadline for applications is 31 October 2019
