We are seeking an inspiring colleague to become part of our senior team. Derby Cathedral Chapter have discerned that Christian nurture, learning, and education is to be central to how we will engage with the many communities to which we relate.

We have a vision to become an arts and culture hub that is witness to the work of God in the whole of human life.
