Current Vacancies

Team Support Officer

Temporary & part-time
2 days per week (14hrs) over 2 days
Salary: £19k – £22k (FTE)
Approx. £9.87 – £11.43 per hr plus enhanced pension

We are looking for someone with a strong administration background to join our non-residential team. This is a new position to help support the existing team in the day-to-day running of Gaia House. We’re looking for someone who is highly organised, has an eye for detail and a real “can do” approach to what will be a varied and valuable position. An understanding of the Gaia House culture and experience of retreats is ideal but not essential, as an opportunity to develop and explore meditation and practice is actively encouraged.

This temporary role will be for 2 days a week starting as soon as possible. Expected hours will be 9.15am to 5.15pm with an hour for lunch. Exact days of the week are to be negotiated. We plan to review the role next March with the potential to recruit for a more permanent role of between 25 – 30 hours in April/May 2020.

The deadline for applications is 12pm midday on 28 October 2019.

Interviews will take place on Friday 8 November.

Please send your application form via email to our HR Manager, Sarah Abdy:

For any questions or an informal discussion about the role, please contact Sarah Abdy on or telephone 01626 323881 and leave a message.
