Are you living outside of the U.K?
Would you like to serve as a volunteer with an exciting Christian organisation?
At Frontier Centre, Rock UK has a volunteer programme taking on overseas volunteers from both EU countries and non-EU countries. Placements are for nine months from 2012, the placements start in January, February and April; volunteers must be at least 18 years old and are typically up to 28 years old.
This is an amazing opportunity to offer your services to work as part of a busy team of Christian young people, to grow in faith and spiritual understanding and to experience different cultures and denominations. Living as part of a Christian community can be a lot of fun and fellowship with friends is an important part of the experience. It is not always easy and can be challenging at times, but it will always be hugely rewarding.
Overseas volunteers work as part of the Hospitality Team, a team of around 8-12 international young people doing a variety of jobs around the centre. Working hours are around 37.5 hours a week. Accommodation, meals and internet access is provided free of charge together with an allowance of £35 a week to cover day to day living expenses and any U.K. travel expenses.
Volunteers will be given the opportunity to visit attractions in the U.K. London, Oxford, Cambridge and Stratford-upon-Avon are within easy travelling distance. Volunteers are also encouraged to arrange their own visits on days off and during holiday periods to get the most out of their experience of living in the U.K.
As a Christian charity we want to encourage all volunteers to grow in their Christian faith. Volunteer Hospitality Team members are expected to be committed to the centre’s Christian fellowship and will have regular Bible studies (in English) on centre as well as the opportunity to worship and get involved with a local church.
English lessons may be provided, subject to volunteer-teacher availability, however this must not be the primary reason for volunteering with Rock UK.
After induction and training we like to get our volunteers straight into action. After training typically you would be expected to:
- Clean & prepare the dining room for guests
- Carry out washing up duties
- Serve food to our guests
- Assist with table plans and checking dietary requirements
- Welcome guests into the dining room and advise menu details
- Assist with cleaning and preparing the centre for our guests
Other more occasional tasks (also after training) include:
- Assist with building safety checks
- Assist the activities instructor team during outdoor activity sessions
- Assist the Maintenance Team with light maintenance duties
Depending on your interests and abilities you may also have the opportunity to work with other departments for example; the centre’s Administration Team.
