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 Programme Manager is an exciting and creative post at the heart of the life of the Abbey. Working closely with the Warden you will develop and organise a varied and dynamic programme of workshops, events and activities that create for guests opportunities to deepen their commitment to peace and justice, understand and live out the vision and values of the Iona Community, and laugh and build friendships.

We are looking for someone who is very well-organised, imaginative and with previous experience of devising, facilitating and running programme events and group activities. Having a sense of humour and being happy leading ‘up front’ will also help!

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.
