Working at Brockwood as a residential staff member requires that you have a serious interest in Krishnamurti's teaching and a commitment to working with others in a spirit of inquiry and co-operation. Working at Brockwood Park in any capacity is more than a job opportunity; it is a lifestyle. All staff have other duties apart from their actual job and need to be aware of these demands. Regardless of function, all residential staff members at Brockwood receive the same monthly salary - approximately £614 - plus food, health care, and accommodation.
We are always pleased to hear from qualified and experienced teachers or support staff.
NOTE: We need to make sure that non-EU passport holders are entitled to work in the UK.

One exception to this is if the job and qualifications required for it are above graduate level. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested and or need further clarification.
