Choir Chaperones

(£10.20 per hour)

The Cathedral is looking to recruit a team of Choir Chaperones to support the music department staff in their work with the choirs and to provide supervision of choristers before, during and after rehearsals and services.

Choir chaperones will be the chief point of contact for choir parents and will take charge of the children in breaks between rehearsals and services especially on Sundays when there is lunch for the choirs and a period of recreation before the rehearsal for Choral Evensong. The Choir Chaperones will remain on site until the last chorister has left the site after each service or rehearsal.

You should have experience of working with groups of young people, be friendly and approachable, with a good sense of humour, able to relate well to young people between the ages of 7 and 17 and deal with unexpected situations calmly. A genuine interest in the Cathedral’s Choirs and their work will be essential.

This post will be subject to an enhanced Disclosure and Barring Check and those appointed will be required to undertake safeguarding training prior to commencing work.
