New Norcia Benedictine Community


New Norcia is situated amongst one of the most picturesque areas of the state offering a unique range of historical buildings, religious artworks and artefacts, fauna and flora only two hours from the Perth CBD. We offer competitive salaries and excellent working conditions including work-life balance. We are an equal opportunity employer and support flexible work arrangements.

As well as the diversity of activities in New Norcia, the responsibilities, challenges and opportunities for professional development are benefits of working within a smaller community that has such a long and fascinating history. The objectives of New Norcia are to be a Benedictine monastery; to be economically sustainable; to preserve / conserve the heritage of New Norcia; and to share the heritage and spiritual life of New Norcia with visitors.

The broad range of operations undertaken at New Norcia requires a diverse workforce, with positions ranging from professional to unskilled. Many services operate seven days per week and some operate in the evenings, so we need a flexible workforce where some staff are available outside normal “office” hours. For some full-time positions, rental accommodation on-site may be available.
