Residential & Local, Full & Part Time
Looking for a job that’s more than just a job? Being on Menla’s staff means being part of a community, working for a meaningful cause in a healthy and beautiful environment. A mix of residential and non-residential positions are needed throughout the year, with both full-time and part-time opportunities. Our staff consists of 20-35 people, depending on the time of year, across five departments: Front of House, Kitchen, Housekeeping, Maintenance, and Spa. Working here is dynamic, inspiring, and fun, though since our staff is small, we all work hard and sometimes wear many hats.

We prohibit discrimination and harassment of any kind based on race, color, sex, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, genetic information, pregnancy, or any other protected characteristic as outlined by federal, state, or local laws.

We are seeking self-motivated, hard-working staff who are hard-working, friendly and flexible, have excellent customer service skills, and a desire to offer the best of themselves in a unique nurturing environment.
While Menla is not a 24/7 dharma center, numerous dharma and yoga retreats take place here. Our staff is invited to attend Menla-sponsored classes and many yoga programs, schedule permitting.
In addition, the staff benefits from exposure to a wide variety of spiritual and holistic paradigms and personal interactions with people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives. Working here provides an opportunity to give service not only to our wonderful guests but to a deeply important cause. We are a 501 c3 organization with our Headquarters–Tibet House US–being in Manhattan by Union Square. Tibet House US is the Dalai Lama’s Tibetan Cultural Center in America
