Volunteer For Accommodation


Job Description

Volunteers usually help with food activities, our in-house cafe and group breakfasts in the hostel. They are not required to clean rooms, as we employ our own housekeeping team. We do not require help on the reception desk, as again, we employ our own staff for this.
We expect our volunteers to be flexible, as our volunteers shifts begin as early as 645am, and finish around 11am. Our evening shifts run from 430pm until around 8pm. Generally, volunteers help around 18 hours per week, which covers their full accommodation for the week. General duties, include tidying away breakfast plates, and preparing food on food activity nights.
Our volunteers share a four dorm room together. All of our hostel rooms have en-suite bathrooms.
Whilst we do not provide set meals, we allow our volunteers to make cereals and toast after their shifts, and make their own coffee.
We request our volunteers are with us for a minimum of one month, and a maximum of 2 months.

We request that you are already in Sydney if you are applying for this vacancy.

Include: A cover letter explaining why you think you are the perfect candidate (the more humorous the better), and a recent resume!

Postcode: 2000 (SYDNEY, Sydney)

We are a New Hostel in the YHA family placed in the very beautiful area of The Rocks, which is Sydney's oldest and most historical location. We are busy all year round so we are looking for helpers interested in free accommodation at our hostel in return for volunteering in one of our cafe or catering areas.
