Do you want to help us look after some of the brightest and exciting leaders of the future in a beautiful and historical environment? Are you cheerful and enjoy dealing with people from all sorts of backgrounds? Are you hard working and thorough enough to make sure the job is done properly?


At St John’s College we are looking for people who will do their best to understand the needs of the college and to put those needs first when they are at work. Because of this we believe that the attitude you bring to work and the way you choose to behave is as important as your skills and experience.

The 20 hours per week will be worked over a 7-day rota to include day, evening and weekend shifts.

The successful candidate will ideally have previous experience in a similar role, with cash handling experience and an intermediate food hygiene certificate (although training will be given where required).

The College offers a competitive benefits package including membership of a contributory pension scheme, 36 days’ annual leave pro rata (inclusive of Bank Holidays), access to a ‘cash plan’ healthcare scheme currently provided by SimplyHealth, free meals on duty (up to a specified monetary limit), free use of an on-site gym and free parking close to the College site, subject to availability.
