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

York Minster is a precious and treasured place. We are looking for a Dean of York who can capture and embody the ‘big picture’ of a big place – a Cathedral which serves the Diocese and Province as well as being a Minster for the City. We need a person of energy, focus, vision and humility to lead the Minster in shaping and influencing the life of the North and building on emerging plans for mission, service and ministry, all in the service of Christ.

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 York. Whilst previous Cathedral experience would be an advantage and love of the liturgical traditions that are the heartbeat of Cathedral life is essential, we are committed to nurturing a culture of diversity and inclusion and would like to encourage applications from a wide range of people. If you have the gifts and experience we need – and sense that God might be calling you – then we would like to hear from you.

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