As a Cathedral welcomer you are the first person to meet and greet our visitors to Manchester. We are proud of the warm welcome our visitors receive, whether they live in Manchester or have flown from the other side of the world.

We look for enthusiastic, friendly, and approachable personalities, who will be comfortable interacting with some of the 170,000 visitors a year.

Details about welcoming:

  • Cathedral welcomers usually give three hours per week on a weekly or fortnightly basis
  • You will act as a reference point for visitors and provide information and help
  • You will signpost visitors to information about the building, future events, and directing them to exhibitions
  • If you wish to enjoy the experience with a friend, we can make sure you volunteer on the same day
