We are seeking to appoint a suitably qualified person to take on the role of looking after the campsite. Experience within the camp and group accommodation industry will be highly regarded.

It’s a position which requires a strong work ethic and a clear commitment to serving in a Christian environment that intersects regularly with people of different Christian denominations, as well as people who may not yet have come to faith in Christ, including school camps. It involves lots of maintenance, being available to assist campers, and a capacity to work with the Keswick Convention Council to further our vision to make the campsite a place where everyone can feel loved, accepted, and safe, whatever their reason for being on-site. 

The position comes with on-site accommodation and could be suitable for a single person, or married person with or without children. Prospective applicants should be able to provide suitable references, have or be able to obtain a Working with Children Card and be willing to endorse the Keswick Convention Statement of Faith.

Expressions of interest should be directed to the Council Chair, Phil Williams
