Green & Away is looking for several passionate and hardworking individuals to join our summer internship programme. Our programme is varied and adaptable to suit you and your interests. What we can offer you is a place to learn new skills, meet a range of different people and learn about sustainability, environmental education, and running a charitable organisation. Green & Away has hosted interns every summer for around five years and the feedback we have received has been excellent. Our interns have gained life-changing skills with us and have described their time as the best summer of their lives. Green & Away is a unique and magical place, with something for everyone. Green & Away, established in 1990, is a unique event venue and campsite, offering groups, organisations and individuals a natural, eco-friendly and creative space in which to come together and relax.
Work: As an intern, you will be a valuable member of the crew throughout the summer and will be responsible for managing teams of volunteers. We have groups of volunteers staying for different durations, and we need our interns to be the backbone of the crew, providing ongoing knowledge of the site and undertaking longer term projects. On-the-job training and an induction will be provided in the first week, with continual guidance from a dedicated member of the trustee board. You will have the opportunity to measure your progress through regular check-ins with both your line manager and the interns manager. Interns will join the volunteers during the setting up and taking down of the site. Eco-Events Management As a sustainable conference venue, we host around six events per year, ranging in size and style. We are looking for interns to help coordinate event bookings, assist with event management and take care of delegates during their stay. Some more information: ● We hire out our beautiful site to organisations who want to host sustainable, outdoor events. ● Delegates stay onsite with us, and we provide marquees for the events themselves and accommodation tents for guests to stay in. ● Events are typically at weekends and last 2-3 days and range from 20 to 140 people of all ages and backgrounds ● The rest of the time, the site is ours to use and enjoy, to organise our own events and to get ready for the next event. ● Responsibilities will involve liaising with volunteers, guests and the kitchen in the run-up to and during events and assisting the Event Manager to see to a well-run event. ● You will take a leading role in liaising with event organisers before and during the event while they are on site and you will be the main point of contact for event organisers for the duration of their time at Green & Away. ● You will also take the lead on organising events such as our annual Open Day, to showcase Green & Away to our local community and nearby groups, businesses and organisations. Skills needed: ● Excellent and confident communication ● Team leadership ● Good organisational skills ● Problem solving and taking initiative Skills gained: ● Liaising with event organisers to plan a successful event ● Managing and coordination of teams ● Organising events with up to 200 attendees ● Customer service
Accomodation and food: 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 (three vegetarian meals a day and regular tea breaks with cake!). The site has hot showers, clothes washing facilities and composting toilets. All safety equipment you may require will be provided. A licensed bar with subsidised pricing, comfortable seating areas, and arts and crafts facilities come as and when we have built them. There is WiFi and phone/laptop charging facilities. Please note, when you first arrive the field will be almost empty (although our toilets and showers will be operating), so please be prepared for this). Although Green & Away is set up on the outskirts of a small village near Worcester, the nearest shop and post office is two miles away.
Location and Leisure: The site is situated close to a small village which has some things going on but we are 5-6 miles from Worcester with a direct bus. Therefore volunteers can travel quite freely to a big city and beyond very easily. More immediately the site is located close to a cafe, with walking trails and a river for swimming bordering the site. There is a first aid kit on site and a defibrillator at the nearby cafe, the nearest hospital is 9 miles away.
