Activities & Shift

Are you outgoing, but organised and know how to throw a party? If yes, this is the job for you!
You will do 6 hour shifts from around 3/4pm - 8/9pm. During the day you will plan and promote the events, and then run them on the evening. There will be other volunteers and staff at your disposal but we want someone who can run them with as little input from us as possible so we can carry on improving the hostel in other ways rather than continuously running events and partying haha. You will also be in charge of the volunteer roster, holding weekly volunteer meetings and being a first point of call for them before management
