Social evening and night help needed for hostel in Stockholm, Sweden

Hi fun Backpackers!
We have a work and board programme, which is to have a selected few backpackers who can stay for free in our hostel, provided they help us out some twenty five hours a week. Our volunteers do not do reception work, and they don't replace our regular staff in any way.

You would mostly hang out with our guests and make sure everything is alright at the hostel at night. If you would be picked for this position, we would ask you to organize some inhouse activities which changes from season to season, for example it could be barbeque nights or quiz nights with our guests and also to tidy up the common rooms in the hostel. Part of the job entails having to use our smart phone for documentation to update our social media websites now and again. You and the second boarder takes turn in being scheduled for duty. Normally you work five nights one week, three of them being full night shift, and only two nights the following week, so you get a lot of time free to explore Stockholm and Sweden.

We are looking for solo travellers, age 23 or older. (The reason this volunteer position is not ideal for couples is you wouldn't have any time together - you always take turns with the second boarder.)

You need to be very social, because we hope you will be the social hub of the hostel, making sure people get to know each other and have a nice experience. You also need to be a responsible person, since you will be expected to keep an eye on the property at night.

Write a little about yourself and your plans for the next couple of months, such as when it would suit you best to join us. Currently we are looking for people who can start the middle of February/end of March. Just please note you need to be older than 23, since you will be working night shifts on your own. We prefer to take on volunteers who can stay at least 2-3 months with us.

Before we can consider you for this position we need your CV with photo and references. Please e-mail us at [email protected] along with your motivation why you should be selected for the position. We also always make a Skype interview, to see how we would get along.

We wish you a beautiful time in Stockholm and many happy adventures!
