Full time summer internship

Green & Away is seeking up to two interns to help take care of our guests, assist with running our bar and cafe and manage the on site accommodation throughout our busy season. You will be the main point of contact for guests from the moment they arrive until the end of their stay and will be responsible for furnishing and keeping the rental tents and camping field in perfect condition for our guests.

Responsibilities will involve administering online accommodation bookings and liaising with volunteers, guests and the Events, Office and Catering departments to ensure that everyone who stays at Green & Away feels welcome and taken care of. You will lead teams to turn around accommodation, clean the facilities, restock and run the bar and café as well as maintaining the wider aesthetics of the site.

The placement will offer you practical experience in sustainable tourism, hospitality and customer service. This will suit a warm, creative and organised individual with an eye for detail, who enjoys helping others, multi-tasking and doesn’t mind a bit of elbow grease.

Successful applicants for the internship programme will work well as part of a team as well as independently, enjoy taking on new challenges and responsibility and have an interest in sustainability, charity work, ecotourism, and outdoor living. You will gain considerable management experience and learn about the challenges involved in sustainable living and environmental education.

Green & Away is an entirely volunteer-run organisation and as an educational charity, teaching our interns has been an integral part of our work for over ten years. All interns are expected to stay on site throughout the season and are provided with 3 vegetarian meals a day and a space to pitch your own tent. There will be regular days off and some opportunities for off-site group activities, for example canoeing or visiting like minded eco-businesses, during quieter periods of the season.
