Volunteers at Green & Away

About G&A

Green & Away builds and runs a sustainable outdoor pop-up venue every summer. We welcome committed, hardworking people who are willing to help us provide an important service for the UK’s voluntary, social, environmental organisations and people wanting to hold events with us that are environmentally friendly.

Description of Opportunities

There are a wide range of jobs which need to be done to build the camp and to provide for the large numbers who come to our events. Cooking, washing up, welcoming people, office work, maintaining the toilets, lighting the burners to heat water for showers, etc. are all vital parts of the events. We will find out what your skills are and try to match your skills and interests to what needs to be done, to ensure that the less attractive jobs are shared around. All the jobs carry a measure of responsibility.

Dates: volunteer any time from 15 June - 10 August 2022Accommodation and facilities

Green & Away takes place outdoors and under canvas. You will need your own tent, however, we may be able to arrange one for you if you are unable to bring one and you let us know in advance. Full board is provided (3 vegetarian meals a day and regular tea breaks with cake!). The site has hot showers, clothes washing facilities and composting toilets.

A licensed bar, comfortable sitting areas and arts and crafts facilities come as and when we have built them. There is WiFi and phone/laptop charging facilities.

Although G&A is set up on the outskirts of a small village near Worcester, the nearest shop and post office is 2 miles away.

Requirements

We ask that you are over 18, willing to work hard, have conversational English and are committed to our ethos as an organisation. You should have the ability to enter and stay in the UK for the duration of your volunteering placement. We also ask that you adhere to our Covid-19 policies, which will be at least in line with Government measures and potentially our own site-specific requirements.

How to apply

Send an email to volunteer@greenandaway.org telling us a little about yourself, why you want to volunteer and what skills and interests you have.
