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 Musician post is central to the worship and spiritual life of the Iona Community on Iona and will be even more so during Covid when group singing is restricted. Music connects people and brings worship to life. This is a fabulous opportunity for someone who is innovative, inventive and determined to find ways of harnessing the power of music to move and communicate against all the odds!

We are looking for a talented musician and music facilitator who can play the piano and ideally another instrument, who is experienced in organising groups for music-making and who ideally brings a wider knowledge of world music and church music, including that of the Wild Goose Resource Group.

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.
