Salisbury Cathedral is pleased to announce the appointment of Jane Morgan as their new Director of Communications and Development.
Jane has over twenty years’ experience as a development and communications professional, much of it in the culture and heritage sector, including the Corn Exchange Arts Centre in Newbury and, most recently, at Winchester Cathedral, where Jane has been Campaign Director of the current capital appeal. She has also worked in the capacity of Project Manager for Wiltshire based community organisations.
The Dean of Salisbury, the Very Revd June Osborne, said “We are delighted that Jane is joining us in this new combined role at Salisbury Cathedral. Her extensive experience in both marketing and fundraising capacities will contribute significantly to the success of our future endeavours. I am so much looking forward to working closely with her as we continue to strengthen our community ties, work towards completing our Major Repair Programme and shape our future strategy raising the profile of this living church and iconic building.”
‘Salisbury Cathedral is known all over the world as a place of beauty and worship and it plays a central role in the life of Salisbury and the region. I am really pleased to be joining the team at an exciting time in the Cathedral’s development. It’s a great opportunity to be part of the success of a place which has such a significant role in the community where I’ve lived for almost twenty years’ said Jane.
Salisbury Cathedral is the mother church of the Salisbury Diocese. It employs around 80 lay staff and manages an annual budget of approximately £4 million, supported by 600 volunteers. Each year it holds more than 1000 services and special events as well as welcoming over 250,000 visitors and pilgrims. It also runs substantial education and outreach programmes and is developing its activities to further the cause of social justice. The Cathedral is just over three quarters of the way through one of the most extensive major repair projects of any English cathedral, delivered by its specialist Works Department.
