    Description

    Hello everyone, my name is Sebastian.
    I’m working by my own since 2017 and actually thinking about to make the business grow a little bit by taking another stand at the handcrafts market where I’m settled down.
    So I’ll need some help and I offer this opportunity for someone who wanna spend a summer in a nice village in the coast of Catalonia.

    The the night market is open everyday from 7pm till midnight, and this would be your squedule, 5 hours a day with 1 day off a week mostly on weekends.
    This is from mid june till the end of september and I’ll better host someone who can stay for the hole season, otherwise I’ll need to leave the shop missatended, which would become a huge problem, so I just want you to be conscious of that.
    Anyway if you would like to come here for only one month, for example, let me know and I’ll try to combine with another volunteer who can come the rest of the season.
    Or if you wanna come for the previous months, there will be different tasks like doing handcrafts, painting a fence or planting the veggies, but this will not be paid.

    So the taks are easy, I’ll teach you everything, but basically you’ll be helping to create some arts and bijoux like bracelets mades from crystals, beautyful orgonites piramids and other related stuffs, and then attending clients in the stand at the market, explaining them about each crystals properties, making sells, etc.

    This work will be paid as a normal job. Note that it's halftime job only and salaries in spain are lower, so don't expect a big money, plus the acomodation is already included... But if you put some effort and you are good on sells you can earn some good money with only few hours of easy work a day.
    You will be registered in spanish social insurance, so you MUST have work permit in spain, EU citizenship or a visa valid for working.
    Food will not be provided, but we can share the supermarket expenses and prepare the food together or we can organize the home tasks.

    So this is more like a job offer than a volunteership, but because of the fact that I’m looking for someone with special sensitivity to arts, healings, spiritual lifestyle and so… that I decided to post it here. Also because I can offer a place to stay and the most important: I’d like to create some kind of community with people with same vibes and motivations.

    My home is a penthouse appartment, it has been refurbished recently and have all the amenities except wifi (I can share mine phone internet if you just need it from time to time). There is a big terrace-solarium and some sea views. I like to cook on a barbecue and enjoy late summer night drinks and conversations there.
    In the morning I do some yoga , I like to prepare some fresh and healthy food, I like to grow organic vegetables so if I have time this year I want to plant some on the terrace. I like to play music, go for a walk at the nature, etc.
    I go to the naturist beach (in case you prefer textile beach there is one just 200m from home), sometimes I take sunbath on the terrace also so in case you are not naturist you should be at least tolerant with it.
    There are some nice beaches arround where you can take nice walks, and you can practice lots of water sports too: snorkeling (I can provide googles), paddlesurf, windsurf…
    One of the best amusement park in europe is so close, it's called Port Aventura. I highly reccomend it.
    Although the village is full of tourism the home is relatively quiet, but there is a lot of night live around during July and August, although I’m not much into it to be honest.
    I try to keep my home and community energy high and I'm not tolerant with drugs, dramas and unrespectful behaviors. Only peaceful and respectful people, this is a must.

    I can be an outgoing person but I like to have my introspection moments too, sometimes I meditate.
    Of course you'll be free but I hope we can enjoy some freetime together, I can show you nice places around and be your turistic guide too. I'm allways open for new plans :)

    I’m thinking about 2 volunteers, and I’ll be covering their days off and focused on logistics and other tasks, or just helping you in the market when I have time.
    I bet the ideal are females because the most of clients are females too and I think you can understand each other better, although this is not a must.
    You must talk english fluently and at least enought spanish knowledge to talk some words with clients (they are mostly foreigner tourists), you can improve your spanish while being here. Other languages would be appreciated too.

    In case you are interested just send me a message and we’ll better make a videocall to know eachother, talk about the details, your food prefferences and any other doubts there could be.

    After all, what I want is we all to have a good experience, enjoy the summer and create nice connections and best regards.

    Thanks for reading. Namaste.

    PD: I used to work on a farm and hosted some volunteers few years ago. Idk why I've lost all the references.
