Vacancies​​


Chef     

Full Time 40 hours per week

£22,000 - £27,000 depending upon experience.

Are you motivated and enjoy being part of a team? Do you cook with a view to making people feel valued? Are you passionate about freshly cooked food that is more than simply functional? We believe that an excellent dining experience is vital to our overall message of hospitality and we are looking for an enthusiastic chef to maintain and develop our reputation for providing great food service to our guests.

This is a permanent position for 40 hours per week and will involve weekend work. The majority of shifts start at around 11am and finish around 7.30pm so more suitable for family life than most chef positions. The successful candidate will have experience with menu planning, managing dietary requirements and stock control/ordering as well as a working understanding of Health & Hygiene, including HACCP & COSHH.

Administrator / Duty Manager

There is an opportunity here at The Greenhouse Christian Centre for a dedicated and adaptable team member. The post would suit someone with a passion for God and for seeing others have a deeper relationship with Jesus. He / She should be willing to serve and lead, valuing both guests and team.

  • the welcome and departure of our guests
  • oversight of our reception team
  • acting as duty manager
  • managing group and individual bookings
  • preparation of rotas and communication between teams

It will involve on occasions leading short times of prayer with guests and team and therefore there is a genuine occupational requirement for the post-holder to be a Christian. Serving guests at mealtimes and some weekend working will be required. Closing date for applications is Sunday 19th September 2021.

‘Bank’ Team Members

Do you want to work within a Christian organisation where prayer & seeking to bless others are at the heart of what we do? Do you enjoy practical tasks, but want the flexibility of working on a casual basis? We are looking for people to help on our housekeeping and kitchen teams. 

Resident Community Members

Are you a committed Christian looking to grow in your faith, whilst serving practically and gaining experience in Christian hospitality and living life missionally? You need to have a sense of calling to be here – a sense that this is where God wants you at this time. You are joining a community and need to be committed to meeting and seeking God as a community and wider team. You will need to be willing to serve and help out wherever needed although we do seek to place people on the teams they are most suited to. Community members volunteer in exchange for accommodation, meals and a small allowance.

Maintenance Volunteers
Keeping on top of maintenance with an older building is a challenge and our maintenance man could really do with some help! Even a few hours a month would make a big difference. An aptitude for DIY is helpful but no specific experience/skill set is required.


Pastoral Team

A great privilege we have here at the Greenhouse is to facilitate time and space for people to encounter with God. Working under the direction of the leadership team, we have a team of pastorally-hearted people who volunteer a day a month or more to be on hand to lead chapel services, to offer a listening ear and to pray with our guests. Do you feel this is something you could do?

Call us on 01202 764776 to arrange an informal interview and to come and see the Pastoral Team in action or e-mail [email protected]
