Our Diocese

Director of Music

The Parish of Our Lady & St Thomas of Canterbury, Harrow on the Hill Parish is in need of a Director of Music to lead the adult and junior choirs.


Responsibilities include but are not limited to rehearsing the choirs and directing music at Mass on Sundays, Christmas, Holy Week and Easter, and occasional evenings. The successful candidate will have experience of choral directing.  Ideally this experience will have been gained within a Catholic context, but this is not essential – what is essential is knowledge of and sympathy with Catholic liturgical ethos.  The church welcomes applications from organists with choral directing experience, though applications from suitably qualified musicians who do not play the organ will also be considered, as it may be possible for organ playing duties to be fulfilled by an organ scholar.


Hours of work: 7 hours per week(flexible working pattern and will include evenings and weekends).


Salary: £7500 per annum (negotiable dependent on skills and experience)


Closing date: 22 June 2018


Interviews:  details of the full interview process will be sent to the shortlisted applicants.


Start Date:  Ideal start as soon as possible.
