The Women's Holiday Centre has a vacancy for a live-in worker (open to women only).
This unique, interesting job is definitely not 9-5. Weekends, holiday times and evenings are usually the busiest times. Work patterns vary depending on the day of the week, the number and type of visitors - Friday usually sees a big turnover of visitors and preparing the house for the weekend, before waiting to settle visitors in when they arrive. Midweek can be quiet and good for routine jobs, admin etc. and days off. Some workers have done specific shifts e.g. early or late; others have preferred to work together most of the time. Whatever arrangements are set up, you will definitely need to have flexibility and the ability to negotiate, compromise and communicate with your co-worker.
The holiday centre was set up in 1980 as a charitable co-operative, by women involved in feminism and the women’s liberation movement. Since then, this volunteer-run women’s co-op has been making a difference to the lives of thousands of women and children from all over the country, by providing affordable holidays with a sliding scale for payments according to income.
The deadline for applications has been extended until 7pm on Monday 4 February. Please see www.hortonwhc.org.uk for further details.
Interviews will be on Sunday 10 February. An overnight stay is required on the night before the interviews and is provided free of charge.
