  • Description

    Description

    We, A-Team represent a bigger company together with TED-ED kids, SAVE NPO foundation and SAVE volunteering with volunteers and Interns from all over the globe to have their own personal input in either Sports or School and Educare programs.

    Currently, we employ an array of special individuals. The reception has three permanent staff on rotation. We have a few drivers, chef, 2 managers, HR, marketing team, admin team, logistics team, accounts, and 4 paying interns on a long term bases, ie. they pay to come help us out. What I am looking for is two fantastic interns to help out with super service excellence. The top-notch of someone allocated to guests for any ad-hoc help.

    This is the center point of it all, as we'ere proud to wear our 5stars on the chest. This is where everyone has their Pre or Post night before leaving for their volunteering accommodation close by. We double as an Adventure center, booking and managing activities for global guests, package guests, and volunteers that make the most of their free time. Our sister establishment next door is also a 5star Boutique Guest House for the "Lanies".

    Although we do have a great bar, we won't state this as our selling point, however, a beer shot challenge or beer pong is always a great starter for a great Vibey Night, including our Wednesday "potjiekos" night, Saturday "Braai" night and Sunday DIY braai night.

    We're a great Family in a stunning part of the world, almost at the most southern tip of Africa. Cape Town is world-renowned for being super vibey with the best of many cultures and traditions, landscapes, activities but most of all, the people.

    Having traveled the world over for a few years, I still find myself back in the Mother City. There is something special here. Something no one can quite verbalize, but everyone knows. People look you in the eyes when they walk by and ask "how are you", and they mean it. We are a sincere multi-culture. That's why Interns, Vols, Guests, and Staff come back, some of them permanently. Some theorize its the cradle of civilization, a primal energy that permeates, still.

    Who knows, really. I for one would not trade it for the world:)

    Help

    Backpackers is merely the spear point of a much bigger operation, hence we have an array of positions to fulfill or just generally help out when things get like over season time.

    Currently:

    We are looking for a creative to take video footage for our new promo videos to be released next year. Edit some footage and hand over to the following intern. Edit and compile our current activities videos. Do create some 2D content, social media posts, etc.

    We also need a helping hand at the reception to do the odd bobs here and there and help out. ie. cover reception for two hours so that staff can have a meeting at least once a week. Make sure everything is in check, rooms are clean and tidy ie, perfect. Its the little touches that we aspire to, officially being the best 5-star Backpackers in South Africa.
