Work with us
Join International Students House to be part of a charity that promotes international friendship and understanding through provision of accommodation, social and support services for the international student community in London. Integral to our operations are the facilities and services that support the organisation – One Park Crescent, 229 The Venue, our bars and restaurant.
Our team will tell you that the best thing about working at ISH is the people. It’s hard to work here and not make instant friends with people from all over the world. As well as our diverse student community, we employ 125 people from 30 countries.
Our company culture is friendly and social, but professional. Whether you’ve joined as a part-time student staff member or are established in your career, we’ll give you the support to develop and make an impact.
