YHA Boswinger are looking to recruit a Seasonal Team Member on a variable hours contract from March to October 2023.
YHA Boswinger is a small hostel located on the South Coast of Cornwall, just a quarter of a mile from the South West Coast Path. We host group and private hire bookings which keep us particularly busy between April and late July, when school visits are most popular. We are part of a welcoming community with rowing club, kayak hire, post offices and pub, plus an abundance of pretty swimming beaches that attract holiday makers throughout the summer season. Our most well known local attractions are the Lost Gardens of Heligan and The Eden Project. The hostel is a 1.5 mile walk from the bus stop where occasional buses run to the nearby town of St Austell. You will find it easier to work at YHA Boswinger if you have your own transport, or live in the surrounding villages.
What can YHA offer you?
YHA Boswinger is somewhere a little different, certainly not your average office. YHA offers a fantastic benefits package including:
- We pay £9.50 per hour - rising to £10.42 from 1st March 2023. This is a variable hours contract for an initial period of 9 months. Shifts are negotiated to suit your availability and the needs of the business, and may include mornings, evenings, day shifts and occasional weekends.
- You will get access to YHA’s staff discount and cash back portal
- Free YHA Membership each year
- 10 nights free hostel stays per year for you and up to 3 friends or family

What Skills and Experience do you need to be a Seasonal Team Member?
We value lived experience just as much as previous skills and knowledge. We offer a robust induction, ongoing training, and further development, however, some of our roles will have further skills requirements. It’s an advantage but not essential that our team members have experience volunteering or working with other people.
Duties vary so good communication skills and basic IT skills are advantageous. Excellent time keeping is essential. A responsible approach to work is required in order to uphold high standards of health, safety and food hygiene.
