Guesthouse Administrator Vacancy
Full –time live-in residential position

Start date: immediate

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a full-time, live-in Guesthouse Administrator at Mount Saint Joseph Abbey, Roscrea. The successful candidate will be the ‘face’ of our historic Guesthouse, welcoming and attending to our guests, arranging suitable accommodation via telephone and email, assisting with function planning, liaising with the monastic community and assisting with housekeeping operations throughout the building.
