LArche Edinburgh is an ecumenical Christian community of more than 80 people, which welcomes people of all faiths and none. We are part of a global network of communities where people with and without learning disabilities live and share in life together, working for a world where we all belong.

We are seeking someone with management experience in social care who can lead the Assistants Coordinator (Human Resources Manager) role. Experience of management and HR processes are key requirements, along with a commitment to L’Arche values and ethos.

You will lead on recruitment and HR for the Community, working closely with the other leaders to ensure that we provide and develop high quality person-centred care which supports the practical, social and spiritual needs of those who call L’Arche home. A unique part of our mission is to welcome assistants to live alongside the people with learning disabilities we support, and your role will be key in ensuring we have live-in and live-out assistants with the right skills and potential to fulfil that mission.

If you are interested in being part of a mutually supportive and lively community, then we want to hear from you!


Finding out more about L’Arche

L’Arche is more easily experienced than explained. If you would like to find out more about us, we would normally encourage you to visit us, but sadly, these are not normal times. If you are shortlisted, you will be invited to ‘visit’ one of our houses in a Covid-compliant way as part of your interview.

For an informal chat about the role please email the Community Leader at [email protected] to arrange a suitable time.
