What types of job roles are needed to support the 150 youth hostels across Wales and England?


Join the YHA on Tuesday 19 July from 330 – 530pm in their interactive online insight session looking into the variety of roles within YHA.


Hear more from across teams in the organisation including those who work in our hostels across Wales and also those who work behind the scenes making sure the organisation meets its business objectives and charitable impact.


This session is ideal for Y9 students who are interested in learning more about the potential roles they could follow across many sectors, all within one social enterprise: tourism, hospitality, charity, youth work; business management, marketing, fundraising, surveying, estates, digital and IT…


We will look at what these roles look like within the YHA and how students might start in these roles and progress within them.

You will have the opportunity to ask questions to current YHA staff and learn more about how to get into the sector.

Look forward to seeing you at this session.

More about what we do:

We believe in the power of travel and adventure. To connect people to each other, to nature and the outdoors, to culture and to heritage.

Hostelling makes travel and adventure accessible to everyone, everywhere. YHA operates over 150 sites throughout England and Wales — a community of shared spaces, open to all and for the benefit of everybody.

We provide inclusive adventures, in extraordinary buildings, in amazing places. We’re proud to rank first globally for guest satisfaction. Yet we are much more than accommodation.

We are a leading social enterprise and a 90-year-old movement. A charity on a mission to enrich the lives of all, but especially young people, and improve physical health, mental wellbeing and life skills through the experiences we create.

We bring the adventure, for the first time, for a lifetime. By staying with us, becoming a member, donating to or volunteering with YHA, not only will you feel the benefit, but you will help us continue to reach those who’d miss out without us.
