Vacancy – Cathedral Choir Chaperone

A vacancy has arisen for a Chorister Chaperone for the boys of the Cathedral Choir. The boys rehearse before school four mornings each week in term time and sing Evensong on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and two services each Sunday. They also have duties outside of school term at Christmas and Easter. We are looking to appoint a committed individual to supervise the boy choristers, and to work with Cathedral staff, the Cathedral School and other stakeholders in ensuring the safety, wellbeing and flourishing of the choristers.

The music which the Cathedral Choir provides is an integral part of worship and mission. The music department is committed to promoting Llandaff Cathedral as a centre for excellence in music and liturgy. The life of a Cathedral Chorister is a rewarding but incredibly demanding one, both for the boys and their families. We are seeking a chaperone who understands these demands and will be a practical and pastoral support to the choristers.

The new Chaperone will begin work early in January 2020 and would ideally attend all rehearsals and services when the boys are present. Further details about this paid position are available from the Director of Music, Stephen Moore [email protected] He is also available for an informal discussion about what the Chaperone duties entail. Please do encourage anyone you think might be interested in this important post. The closing date for applications is early in December.
