Volunteering on Iona        Volunteering at Camas


Organisation profile

Inspired by our faith, we pursue justice and peace in and through community.

The Iona Community is a Scotland-based Christian community of people from different traditions in the church, who are engaged together, and with people of goodwill across the world, in action, reflection and prayer for social and environmental justice. A long-established charity, originating in the restoration of Iona Abbey, it is now a worldwide voluntary movement of members and supporters.

The Iona Community welcomes people from every background to share its community life at its centres on the islands of Iona and Mull. Its Glasgow base is located in Carlton Court, close to the city centre. 

It trades through Wild Goose Publications and the Iona Community Shop on Iona, and resources a wide range of church and community organisations through its Wild Goose Resource Group.

Iona Community is an Equal Opportunities Employer.


We currently have no vacancies in our Glasgow office.  Please check back later in the year.

Iona and Camas

Are you looking for an alternative, counter cultural and spiritually challenging way to live and work? Then consider joining the Resident Staff at our centres on the island of Iona or at Camas, to share a common life and extend our ministry of hospitality to guests from all over the world.

Being part of the Resident Staff at the Island Centres is not simply taking on a job – it is taking on a way of life, sharing in the Community’s ministry of hospitality and a common life of work and worship. Resident Staff Members take on specific responsibilities for the running of certain functions within the Community, which encompass a range of skills and experience. We ask that applicants be in sympathy with the aims and purpose of the Iona Community and recognise that living in community is not simply doing a job but sharing in common life responsibilities which includes welcoming guests, building community and daily worship where appropriate. 

Please read Working For The Iona Community explaining practical details about life on Iona and Camas.  UK Immigration Law means that if there is a suitable candidate who already has the right to work in the UK we are not allowed to appoint someone who does not.
