Cathedral and Major Churches Projects Support Panel

The Association of English Cathedrals would like to hear from those with an interest in cathedrals and major churches and the time and relevant specialist skills and experience to serve as volunteer expert members on the Cathedral and Major Churches Projects Support Panel, a partnership between the AEC and the Association of Major Churches.

Serving on the Support Panel will offer a unique opportunity to help cathedrals and major churches resolve their challenges by assisting with scoping out projects and identifying project elements, pointing out potential problem areas and recommending how to overcome them, sharing wisdom, experience and contacts, giving advice and support to cathedral staff, and advising on the need for specialist advice and input when appropriate.

The role of a Panel member is voluntary but reasonable expenses will be paid.

The Benefact Trust and Church Commissioners have provided funding for the project.

Expressions of interest are invited from competent and experienced specialists with skills and experience that could assist cathedrals to devise realistic projects.

More information is available here. The Panel’s terms of reference are available here.

To express interest please send a CV and covering letter (no more than two sides of A4) indicating your relevant area of expertise and experience. All submissions should be emailed as PDF or Word documents to Anne Locke, the Panel Coordinator. Expressions of interest are welcome at any point, as we continue to build the Panel’s numbers and range of expertise.
