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. 

This is a key role in the back-office at the Island Centre, focused on providing general administrative support and undertaking day-to-day financial processes and transactions. You will also assist with reception duties in the Welcome Centre (including the Iona Community shop), answering the phone and dealing with enquiries and requests from the Iona Community and wider public.  

We are looking for someone with prior experience in administrative support who is IT literate and comfortable working in an office environment. Good attention to detail and a warm and friendly manner are essential. 

 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.
