Program Details

The help I am looking for from a volunteer is as follows ...

I am looking for someone with good positive energy, hard working and fast learning.
The work would consist of, a little bit of everything, whatever is needed day to day.
Work in the bar, cleaning in the bar or in the apartments, going to the supermarket for supplies etc.

I am expecting 35 hours per week ... over 6 days. Some days may be busier than others, so hours are different, day to day.
35 hours work is expected in exchange for, accomodation in your own private apartment.
I also supply breakfast, for you to prepare yourself. And lunch and dinner, with the staff team in the restaurant, is included.

Because the bar is so busy, I may need extra hours of help, after your 35 hours per week.
If these extra hours are needed, which is very very likely, I will pay you for your time! So, an opertunity to earn, is availabl
