DUE TO CANCELLATION WE NEED URGENT HELPER [FOR COURSES AND WEDDING] FROM NOW TILL MID JULY [OR LONGER]
We have space for volunteers during 2018.
We are looking for enthusiastic people with mindfull attitude. Experience in catering/waiting/bar work would be an advantage during courses.
NB. We are sociable but not partying!
We are not looking for anyone with drug/drink/personality issues.
We will provide for your own private room in the staff house with kitchen facilities. you will be expected to keep your accommodation [+ garden] clean and tidy at all times. We will provide: Breakfast and large lunch [our main meal]. NB when we are providing course food you will also receive dinner. We will normally cook, but if you enjoy cooking we would be happy for you to prepare some meals. Sunday is rest day so we normally do not cook. We will expect min 25 hours work a week. When we have a course group here you will be expected to work more hours but less hours the following week. We would like you to help in all general aspects: preparing houses, food preparation/waiting, gardening, and if you have any work specialties those as well! We are flexible in respect working schedules, so for example, if you want to work your hours together, then have a break for a few days to go away, that would be ok, but not when there's weddings and courses. We can discuss.
We normally require minimum 3 weeks stay.
Detail below is the schedule of weeks, which are normally Saturday>Saturday. We would expect you to arrive a few days early to acclimatize yourself prior to course arrival.
