Become a House Manager

Become a House Manager at Servants

Do you feel called to serve the homeless?

We would love to talk to you about joining the Servants Community Housing team and being a live-in, on-site House Manager.

What does a House Manager do?

House Managers are responsible for caring for residents and the house on a day-to-day basis.

House Managers do not have to be on-site 24/7, however they do need the flexibility to be present during business hours to liaise with case workers and maintenance contractors, and accept deliveries (amongst other things!).  The position is paid approximately 20 hours per week, along with living on-site free of charge with utility expenses covered.  There is opportunity for further income with cooking or cleaning shifts.

Who can be a House Manager?

Married couples or singles over 25 years of age can be House Managers. House Managers need to demonstrate compassion, common sense and flexibility. The people who work for Servants do not see their roles simply as a job but rather as a vocation that has a tremendous impact on the lives of vulnerable people.

What do our House Managers say? 

Our lives are truly enriched by living in community with a wonderful range of people with colourful personalities and deep histories, who are vulnerable and need to know that they are accepted and safe.  We never know what a day or night will bring, but we have the promise that God's grace will be sufficient and his wisdom will be our guide.  We love seeing when people begin to thrive in this environment.

— Anne and Goran

I love being a House Manager. It is a rare opportunity to give people a safe place to live. Residents can use their time with us to get back on their feet and on their way to a stable and secure lifestyle. It's a privilege to be a part of that.
