Resident Hostess

MATERNITY COVER WANTED!!

We are looking for female maternity cover for our resident hostess Anna and hence we are looking for someone to start from mid February and continue until around the end of November.

Dan and Anna have been doing a great job of Christian outreach to our guests, most of whom are primary and secondary school pupils.  Duties include welcoming groups to the Centre, giving a short thought for the day before breakfast and being around in the evenings,  providing activities and/or manning the non-alcoholic bar and tuck shop.  Applicants must be able to relate to young people in an informal way, and be prepared to answer questions about their faith – in fact part of the job is to provoke these questions!

As the main responsibilities are for the first part of the mornings as well as the evenings, there is a fair amount of free time during the day.  During the Summer the Centre runs RYA Dinghy sailing courses and some introductory canoeing and kayaking sessions, so there may be opportunities to gain qualifications and experience in these areas.

This post would suit someone who is looking to gain some experience in Christian youth work.  Residential staff are part of a Christian intentional community and we provide board and accommodation and pocket money.

No formal qualifications are necessary, although you will need to have good communications skills.  You are likely to be at least 21 years of age and be able to establish relationships with both young people and adults quickly.  You must be flexible in your work patterns, a good team player and also female!

If you would like to discuss the post please contact Frank Cope, the General Manager on 01983 522195 or email me: frank@medinavalleycentre.org.uk with your c.v. and I can give you some more details and/or arrange a visit to the Centre.
