St Paul’s Cathedral has a vacancy for a full-time permanent Head of Security and Resilience. This is a new role and reflects a step change in the delivery of our security activity. The main purpose of the role is to understand the varied nature of the threat, assess the risk, develop policies to mitigate it and to manage a team that protects St Paul’s Cathedral and St Paul’s Cathedral School, its staff, volunteers, worshippers and visitors, and provide security, assurance and welcome through the effective management of risk. As a senior member of Cathedral staff, the Head of Security and Resilience is a Head of Department, reporting to the Registrar and is supported by directly employed and (as necessary) contracted security staff.
The successful candidate will have the ability to remain calm under pressure in a very busy environment; have experience of identifying and managing risk in a similar, complex setting; of developing, implementing and embedding policies and processes across an organisation; and the ability to prioritise work, multi-task and work to deadlines. You will also be able to demonstrate leading security provision, ideally at a site open to the public; successful line management; good IT skills; the ability to influence and persuade colleagues and senior management; and be entirely trust-worthy and prepared to undertake background checks and be trained in safeguarding. You will have the right to work in the UK and be prepared to work unsocial hours from time-to-time to be able to carry out the job successfully.

St Paul’s Cathedral has a vacancy for an Events Coordinator; a pivotal role in the very busy life of St Paul’s Cathedral, controlling the cathedral diary using the Artifax Event diary management system and ensuring all events and bookings fit together without any clashes. The post-holder is also responsible for coordinating the planning of special services and events within the Cathedral to ensure their smooth running, including the many prestigious and high profile special services. This work directly supports the work of Chapter, the Cathedral’s governing body, and the Precentor is the Chapter member with oversight of this area of work. As a senior member of Cathedral staff, the Events Coordinator is a Head of Department and is supported by the Assistant Events Coordinator.
The successful candidate in this very busy environment will have strong experience of working in a comparable role, with project management skills and experience organising high profile events an advantage; however, this is not a conventional event management role, as it is primarily responsible for coordinating across the Cathedral. You will have the gravitas and credibility to represent the Cathedral including in high profile contexts, be proactive and quick-thinking, able to work effectively with minimal supervision and prepared to take responsibility, multi-task and work to deadlines. You will have the ability to manage a series of projects running simultaneously with first class organisational skills and an ability to prioritise tasks. The proven ability to establish and maintain good working relationships with a range of people, including Cathedral colleagues and external organisations, is a must. Advanced IT skills are essential and experience of working with Artifax Events or a comparable electronic diary management system an advantage. Finally, if you are used to working successfully with confidential information and with complete discretion you may be the special person we are seeking for this unique role.
