 Robert Gordon

With the new direction of St Paul's Institute in 2009, Robert took over responsibility of the day-to-day management of the organisation including facilitation of the Institute's event programme and agenda; administration of social media and the Institute website; and the creation and editing of online video resources for the cathedral as a whole. He finished his work at St Paul's Cathedral in March 2017 to take up a position at Lambeth Palace and also sits on the Steering Group of JustShare, a coalition of churches and charities committed to global development and social justice that operates out of St Mary-le-Bow Church, Cheapside.

Originally from Australia, he received a B.A. (Hons) from Melbourne University with a degree in Anthropology. He continued his studies by relocating to the UK and receiving an M.A. in Museum Studies from University College London whilst volunteering for a number of cultural heritage and church-based organisations.  A keen and active writer, he has particular interest in reconciling faith and morality with notions of success and progress that the modern world is centred upon.
