Above the city of Zurich, situated on top of the house mountain “Uetliberg”, the guesthouse and seminar centre “Im Sonnenbühl” offers the perfect ambiance for tranquillity or lively exchange. Guests can experience a rich offer of various seminars, workshops and events. There is a big tent for interested people to rent for private events such as birthdays or weddings. The owner of the property has a vision to welcome different people and offering different events to bring people together. In this location there are also offered healing arts such as Yoga, Massage, Coaching or Meditation.
The aim of this middle term position is to help out in the guest house during the summer season. This will include housekeeping, cleaning of the guest rooms and toilets, reception, garden work, taking care of the swimming pool and different other tasks. Volunteers with manual skills are as welcome as Volunteers who know how to use the computer (Mac). The land lady has also a small second trend shop where she is selling second hand products (clothes, shoes, bags ). It is very important that the Volunteers know how to cook, because they will also be asked to prepare food sometimes. A motivation letter is required.
There are two small rooms with a bed and cupboard in the house of the land lady where Volunteers can sleep. The bedrooms can be separated. The other option for nature lovers is to sleep outside in the beautiful garden area of the guesthouse in a comfortable tent. The host will provide tents. Volunteers can decide on their own needs.
Zurich is a lively business city close to Zurich airport. Although from Zurich main station it will only take you around 20 minutes to the house mountain “Uetliberg”, the guesthouse and seminar centre “Im Sonnenbühl” is like an oasis in the middle of nature. From Zurich main station you will take the train S10 to Uetliberg. At the terminal stop “Uetliberg” it just takes three minutes to the project place.
This position is open for two Volunteers who are willing to help with different task, who are open minded and independent. The minimum age is 18+. Because the Volunteers will work close together with the owner of the guesthouse and seminar centre, they are requested to send a short motivation letter why they would like to take part in this project and include a picture from them. The atmosphere will be very familiar. Volunteers can bring their own ideas how to support the land lady. The position is also open for asylum seekers!
Workcamp Switzerland was founded as an association in 2004. It is politically and confessional neutral. Workcamp is now (since November 2012) a full member of the international network “Alliance of European Voluntary Services Organisation”.
Since 2011 year Workcamp Switzerland wants to integrate people with any kind of social, physical or mental deficits. We experienced in our Workcamps that it’s a benefit for all participants to mix people with different backgrounds in a practical, non formal environment. For young adults with any kind of handicap the beneficial work can be a chance to get into a working process and to strengthen the self confidence. That’s why we open our projects for Volunteers with fewer opportunities and support the initiative “Access 4 All”.
