Vacancy: Housekeeper – Immediate Start

Do you feel called to live and work in a Christian community?

Do you want to join a ministry of evangelism, service and hospitality to international students in this hall of residence in central London?

Lee Abbey London is looking for a Residential Housekeeper to head up our House/Servery team, helping to provide God’s welcome and excellent hospitality to our guests and international students.

This is a practical hands-on role that requires you to work alongside your team and lead by example as you serve our guests and ensure that Lee Abbey provides excellent, clean and welcoming accommodation and facilities.

This post is at the Team Leader level. You will be responsible for leading a team of about 12 residential community members: preparing rotas, admin, training, working with budgets, ordering, liaising with relevant contractors, and managing your team’s Health & Safety. You should have:

  • an active and mature Christian faith and a sense of God’s calling to join Lee Abbey London’s ministry
  • housekeeping experience in a hospitality context
  • attention to detail
  • excellent admin and budgeting skills
  • a relational approach and good interpersonal skills
  • supervisory and management experience

This is a role that requires you to be physically fit and able to be on your feet for extended periods, while working alongside your team.

This is a “live-in” post only and requires that you join the residential Lee Abbey London Christian community. An allowance, accommodation (incl broadband & phone), meals and utilities provided. Due to accommodation limitations preference may be given to single applicants.

Lee Abbey London is committed to safeguarding children and adults and expect all members of our team to share this commitment. A satisfactory Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check is required prior to confirmation of appointment.
