Work experience/traineeships at YHA London Earls Court 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 16-25 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.

It was good to help with the maintenance side of the hostel and get some longstanding jobs done.

Left on Wednesday 2nd January 2019 for Hostel/Student Placement YHA London Earls Court - 2 week minimum 2019

The hostel is absolutely fantastic and the staff are super nice and very helpful. I volunteered at the reception (helping with the breakfast, check-ins and check-outs, guest enquiries,...), so the work itself was really diverse and lots of fun. I would definitely recommend everyone to volunteer there and will try to do so myself as soon as I have some spare time again. ;-)
