Harris Hill is delighted to be working with Westminster Cathedral, in their search for a Communications Officer.

This role is a 6 months contract during an exciting period for the organisation. Westminster Cathedral is implementing a Live Stream system, so this role is not home based, so you can be bought up to speed. It is also imperative that you have a good understanding of the Catholic faith as you will be communicating about the faith and the cathedral itself.

The Cathedral Communications Officer will be responsible for developing a public relations/marketing programme to raise awareness of the Cathedral among key external audiences while encouraging greater engagement with the existing Cathedral Community.

An important component of the role will be creating and producing content for the Westminster Cathedral website and other mass audience digital platforms. This could include but is not limited to videos, blogs articles, reviews and online resources including social media platforms.

The appointee will also have responsibility for overseeing the Cathedral s live stream used for transmitting services and will, from time to time, need to take charge and manage a team of volunteers for the transmission of major events.
