Hartfield House, Applecross, IV54 8ND
Casual worker contract – £8.25 per hour, plus holiday pay
Venture Trust works with people experiencing complicated life circumstances. Through the provision of wilderness-based personal and social development programmes, we equip them with the confidence, motivation and core life skills that they need to make positive changes in their lives.
Venture Trust’s social enterprise, Venture Mòr, operates an Affiliate Youth Hostel, Hartfield House on the Applecross peninsula and also offers adventure holidays and activities plus corporate team building and wilderness experiences across Scotland. Essential to the effective operation of our Hostel is a bank of experienced and hardworking casual worker staff, to who we can offer work to meet business requirements. As a casual worker with Venture Trust hours offered and worked may differ week to week, and particularly in response to high season; this is a great opportunity for you if you’re looking to work around existing commitments or bolster your current income levels.
We’re currently looking to increase our bank of casual workers at Hartfield House, in the Housekeeping Assistant role. Our Housekeeping Assistants are responsible for ensuring a high standard of cleanliness throughout the Hostel, including bedrooms, washrooms and public areas; as such, high attention to detail and previous experience of general domestic work are essential.
Venture Trust is committed to promoting equality and diversity in employment, and follows an equal opportunities policy. As such, you will be asked to complete an equal opportunities form.
If you would like to be considered as a casual worker at Hartfield House, please write to Henry Robertson (firstname.lastname@example.org) outlining your previous experience, which role you’re interested in, and providing a note of two referees we can contact.
Get your boots on for Beacon!
Summer is finally here! With it comes the opportunity to enjoy the warmer weather and longer days, and get outside in the fresh air. But what about when Autumn approaches? Do we layer on the warmer clothes and head inside? No! Now is the perfect time to beign planning for the Autumn and winter months. We have just the challenge to keep you active and inspired. On 16 September we will be heading down to the Lake District and tackling a 27-mile trek through the most spectacular scenery in order to raise much needed funds for Beacon charity.
The Beacon centre is dedicated to helping local people with sight loss to live a fuller, more independent life by providing the finest facilities and support.
This will be your chance to get off the beaten track and see some of the sights of the Lake District rarely spotted by tourists while tackling moor and mountain. Should you choose to accept this challenge, here are some of the finer details of the trip:
Lake District Trek Highlights:
- Day one of the trek covers Keswick to Langdale following the beautiful Cumbrian Way, a distance of around 17 miles.
- Day two of the trek covers Langdale to the stunning waters of Coniston, a distance of around 10 miles.
- The trip includes two nights of accommodation, the first in a trusted establishment the night before the trek gets underway and the second, a night camping with all equipment provided.
- All meals included from Friday night until Sunday lunch.
- The challenge will be led by our highly experienced team of outdoor guides, so you will be in safe hands!
The challenge has been created to be accessible for both sighted and people with sight loss, including those with guide dogs. What could be more inspiring than getting your boots on for Beacon?!
