Volunteer with Us

DO YOU LIVE OUTSIDE THE U.K?

YOU CAN VOLUNTEER WITH AN EXCITING CHRISTIAN ORGANISATION

Who are Rock UK?

Rock UK Adventure Centres are a Christian charity that has been running outdoor adventures for nearly 100 years. Lots of school groups, youth groups, churches and businesses visit our centres for exciting adventure activity weeks, day visits and weekends away. Our adventure activities include, canoeing, kayaking, climbing, archery and many more.  We have 4 adventure centres across the UK and we run an oversees volunteering programme at Frontier Centre, our centre in Northamptonshire.

Our volunteer programme is for overseas volunteers from EU and non-EU countries. Placements are for a maximum of 9 months and generally start in January, February and April but we will try to be flexible where possible. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and are typically up to 28 years old.

Live in a Christian community & grow your faith

As a Christian charity we want to encourage all volunteers to grow in their Christian faith. Volunteers are expected to be committed to the Rock UK 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.

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.

What will I be doing & where will I live?

Overseas volunteers work as part of the Hospitality Team. Working around 37.5 hours a week. Accommodation and meals are 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.

After induction and training we like to get our volunteers straight into action. After training you would typically be expected to:

  • Assist with building safety checks
  • Assist the activities instructor team during outdoor activity sessions
  • 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
  • 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.

 

Holidays, days off & sight seeing

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.

Improve your English

English lessons may be provided, subject to volunteer-teacher availability, however this must not be the primary reason for volunteering with Rock UK.
