The staff and long-term volunteers of the Chisholme Institute form an intentional community. This is a planned residential community designed to have a high degree of social cohesion and teamwork. We work together to support the aims of the Institute. Yet as students, we all live, work and practice together to explore our understanding of existence as a single unity.
Work opportunities at Chisholme are first and foremost educational positions and are part of a learning environment for both students and staff. All jobs at Chisholme House are available within the spirit of Equal Opportunities and in fulfilment of the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act. Read more here
Positions are residential and include full board and lodgings. You may also receive a subsistence payment to help you financially. You will have the opportunity to join in study and retreat courses and daily meditation as you wish.
People with all kinds of skills are appreciated and can find a place at Chisholme.
At present there are also openings in these specific areas:
