YHA Hostel Placement

Details Hide[-]

Is life a little boring? Fed up of the same old view out of the window? It’s definitely time to try something new!

 

We have residential placements available at some well-loved hostels. City, country or coastal, the choice is yours! Our hostel/student placements are perfect if you would like to gain hospitality experience, complete a work placement as part of your course of study or simply get away from home and lend a hand.

 

Hostel Placement volunteers assist the team of staff with tasks including serving meals, housekeeping and reception. Our friendly teams will give you a warm welcome and support you throughout your volunteering. You don't need any experience - just enthusiasm and a willingness to get involved!

 

Best of all, in your free time you can visit the local attractions or explore the countryside near the hostel.

 

Placements are for 2-8 weeks. Accommodation is provided and travel expenses up to £75.

 

You need to be aged 18 or over to apply for this role.
