Canterbury Cathedral remains one of the most visited places in the country. It is first and foremost a working living church and community offering a warm welcome to all visitors, groups and individuals from all over the world. Alongside its programme of daily worship, the Cathedral offers a wide range of facilities including guided Cathedral tours, behind the scenes visits to unseen areas such as the Stained Glass Studio, Stone Conservation Workshop, and the Archives & Library. It boasts Hotel and Conference facilities, an ongoing events program, world class musicians, and first class facilities for the 100,000 or so school children who visit the Cathedral every year. 

The small Stained Glass team are highly dedicated to the care, conservation and maintenance of the large collection of stained glass of Canterbury Cathedral. The team are looking to add to its number by appointing a Glazier who is able to demonstrate a high and diverse level of professionalism in the practical craft, and who has an understanding of current stained glass conservation/preservation practices. 

The ideal candidate will have a relevant recognised qualification or equivalent proven ability, sound skills in glazing traditional leaded windows and be experienced in site work. It is essential that the candidate is able to work at height, and will ideally be able to drive a large works vehicle.
