Applications Open For YWCA Resident Assistant Programme!

The YWCA Ireland Resident Assistant (RA) programme provides an exciting opportunity for 4 women to enhance their work experience, hone their leadership skills and live in a dynamic and inter –cultural environment in our student residence in Dublin city centre while pursuing their education or taking a gap year. The programme runs for a period of 10 months (September to July). During this time RA’s are provided with free accommodation, breakfast and an evening meal. They support the Residence staff team in the daily running of the student residence and provide an important link between students and YWCA management. The responsibilities of the role are generally focussed around evenings and weekends and shared among the RA team.

The primary role  of RA’s is to build a safe, inclusive, friendly and welcoming environment for our guests, assisting them in practical ways and offering peer support.  RA’s are assigned ‘point of contact’ duties in the student residence some evenings and weekends. In addition, Resident Assistants will have the opportunity to contribute to and participate in YWCA Ireland’s national programmes and activities which are focused around themes such as gender equality, faith, human rights and women’s leadership.

Closing date: 30th July 2016
