Hi There, I'm Eric and we have started a hotel in the artistic city Ootmarsum, the place was a hotel already in the past but it went bankrupt about 6 years ago and after this bankruptcy here have stayed refugees from all over the world for 2 years, after this period te place was closed again. And then we came here.
Now we have found a way to take over the place and the hotel is now up and running again. We are still renovating and there is a lot of work to do and we can use some help with this :) So if you are interested just send a message.
The hotel is at the city border of Ootmarsum, this is a very artistic small city in the area “Twente”. Some places in the area are Almelo (17 KM) Hengelo (24 KM) Enschede (26 KM). Our capital city Amsterdam is at 164 KM distance.
We offer volunteers;
A nice job in a young and ambitious company
Cozy workplace with possibilities for your own input
A bed in a shared room with maximum 1 other volunteer
Breakfast, lunch and dinner
(Breakfast and lunch are a simple bread meal. Diner is a warm meal.)
Further we are here to help you with whatever needed and possible ??

We ask volunteers;
A minimum stay of 1 month, we prefer volunteers to stay 2 months or longer
Work for 5 days a week about 6 hours a day,
To be flexible, representative, spontaneous, hospitable and customer-friendly
To be honest and trustworthy
As our company is open 7 days a week, it is obvious that you must also be available on weekends, during school holidays and on public holidays.

Not allowed in our hotel;
The use of (soft) drugs,
The use of too much alcohol,
Loud music and parties,
The smoking of cigarettes is only allowed outside.
Overall it is important to know that we are a hotel with mostly older people who come here to enjoy a relax and comfortable stay. Although it is important that our staff has to have a good time, we all have to protect the interests of the guests.

Where do we need help;
In our kitchen as a kitchen help,
This task is depending to your kitchen skills, our kitchen serves simple starters, main dishes and desserts. Also you will be helping with cleaning and dishwashing. (This task is only for people with restaurant kitchen experience)

In our kitchen as a dishwasher,
You will help in our kitchen with cleaning and dishwashing, also when things work out fine you will start helping with other kitchen tasks.

In our garden as gardener,
Here you will help us in our garden with keeping it clean, organized and also you will help rebuilding our garden.

In the housekeeping as cleaner,
As in every hotel guests are coming and going and you will help us cleaning the rooms during their stay and when the have left again. Also you will help us cleaning all other public places in the hotel.

Besides the mentioned tasks everybody is helping there where needed in the hotel so this will be for you as well ??

Become a part of our team,
You will work with us in our young mixed team, where we will take a good look at what your interests and needs are. With us, it is possible to think along and to come up with ideas yourself, in short, you will simply become part of our team!

Would you like to volunteer in our "young" but experienced team? So would you like to offer your guests a pleasant & relaxing stay? Then the next step is up to you to contact us ...
