YHA have amazing properties in some of the most iconic and jaw-dropping locations in England and Wales. Whether you are an urban explorer, countryside rambler or a seasoned surfer – YHA is for you. YHA have spectacular hostels in inspiring areas throughout England and Wales, but we are so much more – we are a charity, aiming to improve access to life-changing travel and adventure, and to help people go to places they have never seen before, who wouldn’t get that opportunity to do so without us.
Every hostel is different, and we have an amazing structure of departmental support. A team member role with YHA could see you serving drinks behind a bar 20 metres from the stunning shore of Windemere or our housekeeping roles could find you changing beds at an enchanting 800-year-old castle. Within our hostels, you will cover a wide range of customer facing duties that are delivered to a high standard, such as, working on reception providing knowledge about the local area, and serving food and drinks front of house to the behind-the-scenes roles such as housekeeping duties and preparing food in the kitchen. These tasks help you to not only create memorable holidays and short breaks for YHA’s customers, but you will get to work with educational residentials, group trips, and a variety of volunteers.
YHA also has amazing opportunities within our national office departments. Our departmental roles range from driving fundraising initiatives within our fundraising team to developing employability products within our Education and Youth team. Accountancy roles help shape YHA’s financial status and working within the People Team could see you dealing with employment law, recruitment, and training for the whole organisation. And, our central sales team place bookings for a variety of customers and advise on a suitable place to stay based on their requirements. The are a large variety of roles within our departments and many, due to the effects of covid-19, are now able to be operated remotely.
At YHA, we ensure that all means all, and aim to broaden our reach throughout England and Wales. We are on a journey to improve our Equity, Inclusion and Diversity. So, why don’t you join us and help make that happen!
