Spend your summer in Wonderful Copenhagen. Meet lots of new people from all over the world. Gain some good hostel working experiences for your CV.
BTW: Did we remember to mention that you will get food, lodging, pocket money (350 DKK/week) and free experiences with the other staff as well?
Do you want to help give other, primarily young, people a great summer experience in Copenhagen? Are you a team player not shy of cleaning and cooking? Then you might be the one we are looking for!
Typically our volunteers are 16-25 years old, most being in their 20s.
A couple of volunteers and managers - in the happy summer of 2015. Btw. we do have male managers and volunteers as well :)
As a volunteer you will be working at the hostel with all the daily duties:
- Checking guests in and out (receiving payment, telling about the hostel, showing the guests around)
- Helping the guests (answering questions, renting out towels, etc.)
- Daily cleaning of the hostel (office, guest rooms, kitchen, living room, toilets, bathrooms etc.)
- Grocery shopping and preparing meals for the other staff
- Receiving bookings and answering questions via mail, online booking systems and phone
- Preparing social events for staff or guests
Usually there is 4-6 hours of regular work (as described above) every day for the volunteers.
So you will also have plenty of time to see Copenhagen with the other staff or hang out at the hostel.
The volunteers share the different tasks, so everyone gets to try everything.
We have two full time managers that has the daily responsibility of managing the hostel.
