Arbeit

We are looking for one female OR male Dutch-speaking volunteer. You will be a native speaker (or equivalent level) of Dutch language. Ideally, you will be about to start, in the course of, or have completed, a University degree. You will be a fluent and grammatically-correct writer in your mother tongue. You will have good spoken and written English, and be interested in finding out about places like Auchindrain Township and the way of life of its people. You will be physically fit: although you will not be expected to undertake significant manual work: Auchindrain is not a suitable environment for those with mobility difficulties or impaired eyesight. Volunteers find the experience of volunteering in the Auchindrain township immensely rewarding, but the environment can be challenging: emotional and mental strength are needed. Your task will be to familiarise yourself with the Auchindrain township and its story, and then to retell this by translating the museum’s interpretive information from English into Dutch language. You will also have the chance to get involved in other aspects of museum life to provide a break from the translation work. Normally, you will be working indoors and will be expected to work 5 days a week from 8.30am to 5pm, with a 30 minute lunch break. Two weeks of the placement are expected to be spent on secondment to the museum on the island of Islay, where the work and learning opportunities, and accommodation arrangements, will be comparable, but the environment very different.

Unterkunft und Verpflegung

You will stay in a large residential caravan located within the museum. You will be sharing the caravan with up to 4 other young people from Universities in the UK or mainland Europe who will be conducting similar volunteering placements such as yours. The accommodation, provided free of charge to you, is simple, but warm, dry and clean with kitchen, shower and toilet, and two twins and one single bedroom. Along with the rest of the young people, you will be expected to live together in a cohesive way with English as the common language. You will be sharing cooking, cleaning and other domestic duties. You will be provided £58 weekly allowance to cover food and leisure time activities.

Lage und Freizeit

The museum is set in a spectacular mountain landscape, with plenty of opportunities for walking and exploring. It is located six miles south of Inveraray, in Argyll. The City of Glasgow is a practical day-trip by bus on a day off. The museum can also recommend you other places in Scotland to visit.

Wer organisiert das Projekt?

The Auchindrain Trust, or in Gaelic Achadh an Droighinn, is a unique 9.5 hectare historic open air museum in rural west of Scotland, Argyll. It is recognised as being the most complete surviving example of a Highland farm township, a type of settlement representative of much of Scottish rural history. The site is generally acknowledged as being national significant. The museum preserves the buildings of an ancient small farming community that evolved over centuries and remained active until the 1960s: these are surrounded by farmland. Open to visitors seven days a week during the summer, the museum attracts people from both the UK and across mainland Europe. The museum has a considerable experience of hosting short-term and mid-term international and UK volunteers and interns from renown universities, including Oxford.

Our residents live a fulfilled and meaningful life and are encouraged and supported to realise their fullest potential. We provide a home environment, meaningful activities and friendship within a warm, friendly, supportive community, enabling residents to live, learn, work and relax. Situated amidst rolling hills and breath-taking scenery on the outskirts of Stirling, CBD provides residential and day care activities for those with learning disabilities and special needs. Ideally located within Central Scotland, CBD is home for its residents. Day care students join Monday – Friday and come from Glasgow, Edinburgh and further afield. Volunteers either live in one of seven houses alongside residents or will have a room in the castle, which is the centre of our community.
