EVS-Activity Assistant at UWC Red Cross Nordic
Start date: Aug 1, 2015,
End date: Jan 31, 2017
At the UWC Red Cross Nordic a volunteer from the United Kingdom will spend 12 months living and working in an international environment. The objective being to provide a European youth the opportunity for work experience in a diverse cultural environment. The volunteer will work mainly with the Outdoor department, summer camps and camp school, but will also have the opportunity to get involved in various projects and activities throughout the College and in the local community. Main tasks will be assisting employed staff in running activities for the camp school and for the college students.
The successful candidate should be more than 20 years of age and have an interest in people from diverse backgrounds and an interest in outdoor activities and/or sports. He/she should be confident with living independently, but needs no prior experience with the activities, as all training will be given. Situated by the fjord, it will be of great advantage to the volunteer if he/she is a confident swimmer, as this opens up an array of opportunities.
The volunteer will have a supervisor at the College and will receive training for the tasks he/she will perform through courses and through on-the-job training, working alongside experienced and well qualified staff. The volunteer will be encouraged to start and run small projects on his/her own, as a way to contribute to our community and to gain independence and experience.
