We are looking for an entrepreneurial individual who combines strategic and innovative thinking with passion and sound leadership and management skills. The successful candidate will have the credibility and ability to build strong working relationships with both internal and external stakeholders and will play a lead role in developing relationships with key funders.
The Cathedral’s financial position in terms of assets is currently secure but it is absolutely dependent on its current levels of funding from the Church Commissioners and congregational giving. It has no debt, but it relies on a tight budgeting process to carry it through each year, maximising income and controlling cost. The Cathedral lacks the historic financial resources which would enable it to be resilient in adverse circumstances, or to take steps to improve its financial position significantly.
The Chapter aims to address this challenge by working towards improved financial stability through mission and outreach as well as through direct fundraising.
The Cathedral has an ideal opportunity to promote itself as a leading cultural and artistic venue in the City and engage with a diverse range of promoters and artists in order to appeal to a wide audience across the Region. Significant opportunities will arise to work collaboratively with the City’s other Heritage partners to build Derby’s brand as a visitor destination, particularly with the opening of Derby’s Museum of Making in 2020.
The Business Development Manager will work with the Cathedral leadership team to maximise revenue from use of our buildings and networks, evaluating opportunities, planning creative events, and engaging with actual and potential stakeholders in the wider community with the clear aim of releasing new income streams to ensure future financial sustainability.

For children to learn and explore it is important for them to have the opportunity to experience sacred spaces first hand. The visit will give them the opportunity to begin to explore spirituality and develop a sense of awe and wonder.
The wonderful space also provides opportunities for work in curriculum areas other than RE. As well as the trails we offer for children we are happy to create a bespoke visit to suit the particular needs of your children.

Derby Cathedral stands in the heart of a vibrant multi-faith city on the southern edge of one of England's most beautiful counties.
Learning is brought vividly to life in this beautiful Georgian building, on the site where Christian worship has taken place for more than a thousand years.
We believe visits by school , colleges and universities are an important aspect of the Cathedral's work, enabling students to learn in a special setting, where history, art, music spirituality and faith combine.
supported by our Cannon Missioner the team consists of a part time Education Officer (who is also a practising teacher) and a team of experienced volunteers, many of whom also have an education background.
We work to offer a friendly welcome to children of all ages and abilities and will adapt our work to suit their needs.
