Thank you for your interest in finding out more about the vacancy for the next Dean of Bradford.

This is not a typical Cathedral role. Not only is Bradford Cathedral one of three in the Diocese of Leeds (and the Dean of Bradford is one of three Deans), but Bradford is also one of the youngest cities in Europe, with more than one-quarter of the population aged under 20.

We hope that the information on this website will help you discern whether you might be called to apply to be the next Dean of Bradford.

If you would like to discuss the role, you can arrange a conversation with Brad Cook (Appointments & Vocations Adviser) by emailing
