Ripon Cathedral is looking to appoint a new Director of Music who will take the department forward into the future. Although these are uncertain times for cathedral music all over the country, we remain totally committed to continuing a strong choral tradition and are focused on providing a vibrant, active music department.

 The choral department is overseen by the Canon Precentor, one of the residentiary clergy, and this post reports to him. In addition, reporting to this role is an Assistant Director of Music, an Assistant Organist, a Music Outreach Co-ordinator, Chorister Supervisors, the Vocal Coach and six Lay Clerks.

The Cathedral is blessed with a back row of talented Lay Clerks.

 The Chapter wishes to appoint a Director who can communicate a real passion and love of music and has extensive experience of managing, leading, and developing choirs. We are looking for a strong manager, encourager and leader of people who will take the department and the cathedral’s music forward into a strong future.

 This post will be a permanent appointment, based on a 40 hour week.
