Join our Team!

Abernethy's vision is to provide exceptional outdoor adventure experiences where our guests can discover more about themselves, others and God.  We have some really great oppportunities to serve in Christian ministry on our teams in Scotland.  Have a look at what we have available and pass on the details to anyone you know who is currently looking for a new challenge. 

As a Christian organisation, we are passionate about seeing our guests experience the love of Christ through the care and contact that they receive.  The team is trained to deliver the best hospitality and adventure activities possible in some of the most stunning (and occasionally remote) locations in Scotland.  We are here to serve guests, ensuring they have an experience to remember for years to come!

There are currently over 100 people of all backgrounds employed with Abernethy in a range of full-time, part-time, long-term, gap year and short-term roles.  Whether you are a school or university leaver or have previous career experience, our ministry regularly offers a choice of options to serve.  Abernethy was established in 1971 and has a long history of upskilling and training its team members and offering opportunities for professional development through in-house training and external courses. 

Most of our opportunities are on a “live-in” basis and there is a great community atmosphere at our centres.  Accommodation, meals and a salary are provided and there is the option to make use of the centre facilities and to visit the other Abernethy centres.

If you are applying for a position with us from overseas, please visit this page regarding visas HERE

Whatever role you are considering, our main focus is to share the Christian faith with our guests, many of whom are 10-18 year olds.  Applicants should be enthusiastic about this and be keen to participate in our Explore Christian programme.  See our statement of faith here.  (We often have team members from overseas: please read our statement of faith in French here.)
