Thank you for submitting an application to become a L’Arche Live-in Assistant. This is what will happen next:

  • We will review your application

  • If you are shortlisted you will be invited to an interview via video call
  • If successful and you are offered the role, you will need to provide references and will require a DBS check


Unfortunately, due to the large volume of applications we receive, we are unable to respond to each applicant and will not notify people who are not shortlisted.
