Volunteer Open Day.

March 17th

2pm onwards.

Calling all students, comrades, friends and strangers.Hydra Books are looking for volunteers to help operate our community run bookshop, coffee shop and meeting/event space on Old Market in central Bristol. Run by local people as a volunteer workers co-operative, Hydra Books can provide a platform for individuals to expand their skills and horizons, as well as their social scene for people new to the city (such as students).

Along with providing a productive way to spend your spare time, volunteering at Hydra Books would provide you with key skills and experiences which would all look impressive on a CV or resume, such as;

. Experience in customer service
. Using a coffee machine
. Book-keeping
. Till work

As well as more sought-after skills, (depending of how much you would like to get involved) such as;

. Events management.
. Barista style coffee art.
. Sound-engineering (for music nights)
. Experience in marketing and advertisement.
. Graphic design

Volunteers can look forward to meeting friendly, interesting people, learning more about alternative politics, and perhaps even finding an unknown flair or passion for barista service or bookkeeping. At the very least, those who volunteer regularly can expect good references from Hydra when looking for future employment, and the gratifying sense being part of a wider community.
