Worshipful Company of Cordwainers

Filling the Clerk’s shoes

Posted by: JHM Date: 07 May 2018

After 11 years of dedicated service to the Cordwainers, our Clerk John Miller has announced that he will retire at the end of the year. Finding a successor will not be easy, but the search for his successor is under way; we have selected the London search agency Saxton Bampfylde to help us. Should you be interested in being considered for this position, or know someone who might be interested, please contact Augusta Bunting at Saxton Bampfylde directly on 020 7227 0884.

Under John’s stewardship this Company has enjoyed a purple patch and a resurgence in both its fortunes and its standing with our many stakeholders.

In his letter to the Master, John noted ‘It has been both a privilege and a pleasure to work for the Cordwainers and be part of the Cordwainers family over the past eleven years’.

I am confident that John will not take his foot off the Cordwainer pedal until the very last moment!
