Vacancy posted on behalf of Durham Cathedral.

Location:  Durham Cathedral
Contract:  Fixed-term until the end of September 2018
Hours:  37.5 hours per week
Salary:  £25,635 per annum

Durham Cathedral has a proud history of employing its own stonemasons to undertake the repair, maintenance and conservation work required on this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We are looking to recruit a suitably qualified and experienced stonemason.  The contract is initially offered on a fixed-term basis until the end of March 2018 but this may be extended until October 2018.  A recent quinquennial report has identified a longer term requirement for additional stonemasonry skills which the Cathedral is looking to address in the very near future.

If you have an NVQ Level 3 in Stonemasonry, experience of working on a Grade 1 listed building site or heritage site and you can demonstrate your enthusiasm for the stonemasonry craft, please follow the link below to find out more.

Please note that you will be required to submit a photographic portfolio of your work with your application form either electronically or in hard copy.
