SCOTTISH HOSTEL LOOKING FOR NIGHT WATCH VOLUNTEERS TO JOIN OUR TEAM

*** Looking for friendly & positive male helpers to join our hostel in Glasgow, Scotland. ***
*** Stay 1 month to 6 months ***

ABOUT US
Due to COVID19 and reduced global travellers, we are currently providing emergency accommodation and food to homeless people, refugees, vulnerable people and families. We are in Glasgow and operate 24 hours a day, every day. COVID19 has resulted in more people needing our help. We are helping make a difference to peoples lives.

We are a small hostel located in a residential area of Glasgow. Pre -COVID19, we welcomed travellers from all over the world. We are popular with school groups, individuals, city breakers, backpackers and solo female travelers. We are a good base for those looking to explore Glasgow and Edinburgh or act as a good stopover point for backpackers travelling to North Scotland. We believe in providing a clean, friendly and safe environment.

We are ranked 2nd Best Hostel in Glasgow: https://hostelgeeks.com/best-hostels-in-glasgow-scotland/ and ranked 3rd out of 91 per TripAdvisor: https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Review-g186534-d1738938-Reviews-Alba_Hostel_Glasgow-Glasgow_Scotland.html

But now due to COVID19, we are providing emergency accommodation to homeless and vulnerable people.

THE ROLE
We are looking for 3 volunteers to assist with night watch reception duty 2-3 nights a week. This involves monitoring CCTV, and checking guests are safe and secure. Some ad-hoc daytime cleaning maybe involved.

We are happy to take totally unqualified/urban students and train you and we are also interested in people who already have experience at either housekeeping and hotel work or any other kind of useful skills. We provide training on: cleaning, hospitality management, first aid, counselling, homelessness and digital marketing.

In exchange for volunteering, we provide free accommodation in a dorm, free food, free laundry service, free WiFi, work experience and a reference. This is a great opportunity to make a direct impact to vulnerable people’s lives and you will have the chance to meet people from all over the world.

This is an unpaid role, therefore no work visa required.

Come make some memories with us!
