Volunteer Opportunities in 2018

We are also offer a volunteer placement on Iona throughout our open season. Please get in touch and apply if you are thinking about volunteering in 2018 (March – October). Thank you!

We encourage volunteers to join us for a period of two to three months, as we feel this will help you get the most out of the experience. Full board and lodging are provided free of charge, and reasonable expenses can be reimbursed. We can accommodate either a single volunteer or potentially a volunteer couple. A description of the volunteer role and an expression of interest form are given below.
