Work a season with YHA

Seasonal work

Already thinking ahead to 2019? So are we.

We’re looking for people to join our hostel teams to work a season and we thought we’d tell you a little about what this involves and what YHA can offer you.

Seasonal staff

The role

When working as a Seasonal Team Member with YHA it’s important to know that it’s a very varied role. You’ll get involved in lots of different things including:

  • All aspects of housekeeping – from cleaning the showers and toilets to making the beds and sprucing up the communal areas
  • Reception – checking in guests, answering queries and ensuring our customers have a world class stay
  • Kitchen – preparing, cooking and serving meals to our guests and maintaining our food and hygiene standards

At some of our hostels you might be able to assist with some of our activity packages or get involved with looking after conferences and events too!

Don’t worry if you’ve never worked a season with YHA before – we have our induction days to get you all settled in and up-to-date with the YHA way. Featuring everything you need to know – from our Housekeeping Academy Training to safeguarding…we have it all!

So, what makes YHA special?

Well, we have properties across most of England and Wales who will recruit a seasonal team, so whether you’re looking to work in the mountains of Snowdonia, surf in the south coast seas or soak up the beautiful surroundings of the Lake District – whatever it is that you like to do in your free time, there’ll be somewhere just for you.

We’re able to offer staff accommodation at some of our properties and we will try to make this clear on our adverts by stating ‘Live In’ or ‘Staff Accommodation Available’. We offer flexible contracts to our team members (usually a minimum of 25 hours working up to 42.5 hours per week), but we can also look to offer fewer minimum hours to suit your needs too.

You’ll also receive some fantastic benefits such as high street discounts, BUPA Health Cash plan, discounted gym members, free hostel stays and much more.


How to apply

All of our roles are now live and you can apply online.
