Welcome to YHA

We have a passion for what we do. Our mission is: to inspire all, especially young people, to broaden their horizons gaining knowledge and independence through new experiences of adventure and discovery.

We operate a network of Youth Hostels in England and Wales. Working for YHA provides an exciting opportunity to work seasonally or all year round outside of the normal 9 to 5, to live and work in a buzzing city centre or stunning coastal or countryside location.

We welcome people from all communities, indeed our employees represent 40 different nationalities.

All employees receive free membership and may stay at hostels free of charge. Our employee benefits package, YHA Rewards, includes a health cash plan, cycle-to-work scheme, childcare vouchers and retail discounts. Plus all staff have enhanced annual leave entitlement.

We take employee development seriously and gained Investors In People Silver award in 2011.

We offer a wide-ranging employment experience. There is a back-to-the-floor programme, the opportunity to be a learning champion and deliver training, and for those under 26, the opportunity to be a young advisor and shape the future of YHA.

We are a charity and actively fundraise for our own YHA bursary fund 'Break 4 Kids'.

We have strong values that embody the SPIRIT of YHA. You can nominate a colleague for truly living one of our 6 SPIRIT values through our quarterly YHA SPIRIT Awards for employees and volunteers. We have a Green SPIRIT plan to help us share our environmental objectives and achievements.

YHA is fun to work in. Employees can feedback through our people forums and say what it’s like on our social networking website, YHA Social World. Our employees talk about YHA being like a family resulting in great loyalty and commitment.
