Job description

Are you looking for the chance to do something different and find a counter-cultural way to live and work? The Iona Community is recruiting for mainly seasonal staff to live-in and re-open the newly refurbished Iona Abbey to guests in spring 2021.  

The Deputy Housekeeper is a fundamental role in providing a warm welcome to guests of all ages and backgrounds from across Britain and the world. Responsible for ensuring rooms and communal spaces are clean, tidy and Covid secure, you will work with a team of volunteers to deliver systems and rotas, undertake cleaning and laundry and ensure necessary supplies are maintained. You will deputise for the Housekeeper in their absence.

We are looking for someone organised, practical and who takes pride in a job well done. Previous experience in a hospitality setting would be an advantage and full training will be provided.  

Staffing at Iona Abbey is provided by a resident team who live and work together sharing in the common life assisted by a wider team of volunteers. Work and worship are valued equally at our centres. A resident allowance is paid and all accommodation and meals are provided. Previous staff say their time at our centres has been ‘life-changing’. We hope to welcome your application soon.  

Application notes: 

Applications must be made using our application form. CVs will not be accepted.   

A full job description and application form can be found in the vacancies section of the Iona Community website. 

If you wish to apply for more than one post, you must complete a separate application form for each post. 

Each job has a different application form tailored to the person spec for that post. Please make sure you complete the correct form.
