The Lantern Community, Living, working and sharing together

Employment Opportunities

Whilst historically all Camphill communities have been carried and developed by volunteer Co-workers, all centres rely to different degrees on people who offer their skills and expertise as employees.

The Lantern Community now employs approximately 45 people who are engaged in a variety of work, covering areas such as finance, administration, workshops and Companion and house support. The skills that they bring and the commitment they make are valued by all, as well as the positive contribution through social interaction. Our employees are very much part of the Lantern ‘family’, and included in many social and cultural activities throughout the year.

Job descriptions for current posts and application form are available on our website in Word or PDF format (see related downloads on the right). If you have further enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact the Lantern Office by phone on 01425 460201 or by sending us an e-mail to
