Hello there!

We are looking for some new helpers to join us for the summer.

We are a 60 bed backpackers hostel based in an old Wesleyan Chapel in the centre of St Ives, Cornwall. We have plethora of people who stay with us from international backpackers, independent travelers, families, walkers, surfers and seasonal workers (people who work a summer season in St Ives). We're within walking distance of four beaches including Porthmeor surfing beach.

St Ives is a beautiful busy seaside town (google it) located in remote west Cornwall; we're surrounded by cliffs, beaches, stunning scenery and some amazing attractions. Nearby we have St Michael's Mount, the Minack Theatre (both must-sees), Lands End and tin mines.

We have several positions available, all for approximately 10-17.5 hours a week. They are as follows:

Immediate start (March)
1 x overnight duty trouper

From July onwards
2 x morning shift superstars

Role descriptions

- Morning shift superstars: - daily clean of the hostel as part of a three person team, including servicing rooms and changing beds
2 1/2hrs a day. 5 days a week (10am - 12.30pm) plus one evening reception/bar support shift (18.00 - 23:00).

- Overnight Duty trouper: Supporting the evening staff for a couple of hours (a bit of cleaning) before being on-call for guest emergencies through the night. Its a sleeping role so you'll have your own room to sleep in during the nights you're on-duty:
3 nights a week.
A confident person with good spoken English is essential.

All you awesome helpers would have a bed in our shared staff 6 or 4-bed dormitory (separate male or female rooms), with full access to our hostel facilities inc superfast WiFi, private courtyard, bar and TV area (with Netflix). We do not provide meals as part of the position but you do have access to a self-catering kitchen (we do provide you with a beer and pizza night at the end of every month).

We usually require people who can stay for a minimum of three months. There is plenty of paid work available in St Ives during the summer months (in the bars, cafes, restaurants) so, like many of our previous helper,it is easy to find work to fit around your position with us.

You would be an essential part of our staff team and although we work hard when necessary, we also have a lot of laughs throughout the day.

So, if you are full of energy, enthusiasm and are a sociable being, and would like an awesome time meeting like minded people in our chilled out hostel then drop us a message and we'll get back to you - we may ask for a quick Skype chat. We will also chuck in a free surf lesson!
