STAFF VACANCIES

The Hospital of St Cross and Almshouse of Noble Poverty is an historic site incorporating medieval almshouses, located south of Winchester and is one of the oldest charitable institutions in the UK.  The site is open to the public, who can visit its Grade 1 listed buildings, fine Norman church and beautiful gardens.  St Cross Church is the place of worship for the neighbouring Parish of St Faith and holds many weddings and christenings. The Hospital is a popular venue for wedding receptions and concerts, and the halls and grounds are hired out for events.

The charity also provides accommodation (Almshouses) for up to 25 male residents (‘Brothers’) who are over retirement age and preference is given to those in most need.  Brothers are required to live independently; nursing care is not provided in-house.
