Like every year, the Volunteer Work Corps organizes the national “Summer VLC Action”. The headquarters estimates about 250 VLC units and 10 thousand school and university students. KG OHP together with employers prepared more than 5.5 thousand. seasonal vacancies.
Work can be performed by persons older than 15 years. Pupils and students usually work on the basis of civil law contracts (for a specific work or a mandate contract). To get temporary employment, you must be in possession of an identity card and a school or student card. In the case of minors, the written consent of parents or legal guardians is also required. Until June this year, 7,797 people were registered. In some sectors, such as the catering industry, a health booklet is also required.
For a summer job, no special qualifications are usually required. Pupils and students are most commonly employed as flyer distributors, interviewers, warehouse workers, merchandisers, telemarketers, call center workers, receptionists, assistants, secretaries, teachers, as well as accounting and office assistants and hostesses.
More than 1,500 people are already employed. Small gastronomy owners employ young people as salesmen and hotel workers. Currently, more than 2,500 people are assigned to summer work. Seasonal workers are also needed in agriculture. Employers are looking for people who want to work in the collection, processing, packaging and sale of fruit and vegetables. The hourly wage may not be lower than the national minimum rate, ie from PLN 19.70 gross. People who expect a higher income are helped by OHP to find an attractive job abroad – in this case, however, language skills and often appropriate certificates are required.
UCP counselors give young people all the directions in terms of contracts and ways to negotiate working conditions. There are currently more than 3,800 short-term vacancies. People who are looking for work through the VLC can also count on support in the field of job placement and guidance. This year too, young people from Ukraine can count on extensive support from the Volunteer Corps.
VLC training activities are not limited to the holiday season. Our specialists provide a wide range of professional courses throughout the year. The most popular training is in machine operation – including excavators, backhoe loaders and trucks. Gastronomy courses (cook, waiter, bartender, barista, etc.), hairdressing, beauty, makeup and styling courses are also very popular.
