Staff Coordinator at Quinta do Pisão

Hey there! Are you ready for an adventure that blends the joy of living in one of Portugal’s most stunning regions with the satisfaction of building a vibrant community? Quinta do Pisão is on a mission to create a unique experiential tourism haven in the heart of the Arganil region, and we need you to help make this dream a reality!

About the Role

As our Staff Coordinator, you’ll be the heart and soul of our volunteer program. This isn’t just any job; it’s a chance to immerse yourself in a project that’s all about community, learning, and the great outdoors. From the lush gardens to the buzz of creative workshops, you’ll help bring together people from all walks of life to contribute to something truly special.

What You’ll Be Doing

  1. Finding and Welcoming Staff and Volunteers: You’ll put your people skills to work by selecting and recruiting a diverse group of spirited volunteers. Your knack for recognizing potential will help us build an unbeatable team.
  2. Wearing Many Hats: One minute you might be planning staff schedules, and the next, you could be knee-deep in the garden alongside your team. This job is about leading by example and diving into all the activities our staff and volunteers do.
  3. Creating a Home: You’ll oversee our Staff House, making sure it’s a cozy, welcoming place for everyone to kick back after a day’s work. Think of yourself as part host, part organizer, and part family.
  4. Bringing People Together: More than anything, you’ll be shaping the atmosphere of Quinta do Pisão. Your energy and leadership will ensure that everyone feels valued, connected, and part of something bigger.
