Work experience/traineeships at YHA Stratford-upon-Avon 2019

**Please note this is a non-residential volunteering opportunity. Please apply for a Hostel/Student Placement if you require accommodation whilst you volunteer**

We offer work experience/placement and traineeship opportunities for 14-25 year olds at this hostel (subject to availability and eligibility criteria for traineeships*).

This is the perfect way to gain some experience in hospitality for the travel and tourism sector. You would get involved in all aspects of hostel life: reception, customer service, catering, cleaning and housekeeping.

Don't worry if you've never done any of these tasks before we'll show you how to do everything and there will always be someone available to help you.

We can offer this opportunity on a part-time or full-time basis for 1-12 weeks subject to availability at the hostel.

* Eligibility criteria for traineeships include being unemployed and having little or no work experience motivated to work, qualified to below Level 3 and aged 16-24 years old.

YHA and Safeguarding
YHA is committed to ensuring the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults and expects all volunteers to share this commitment. The suitability of all volunteers is assessed in line with this commitment.

Excellent staff and great team of volunteers for the working party that successfully re-decorated 6 bedrooms and a corridor. All the necessary equipment was provided allowing the project to progress without any delays. And, being Stratford-upon-Avon, there is the opportunity to visit and possibly see a play at the world famous RSC.

I had such a great time at the hostel. Sometimes the work was hard due to the amount of it, but I had great colleagues and they supported me, since it was my first time doing this kind of job. This experience helped me a lot: I had the chance to improve my English and now I'm more fluent; I knew new people and explored many new places. It was well organised and the other guys were very kind to me. I would totally recommend this experience and I'd do it again.
