Re: work in York

It's difficult to limit yourself to humanitarian organisations in a small city like York where most jobs are in the city administration/hospital, chocolate factories, DEFRA or tourism these days but you can get mail notifications from for instance Oxfam when there is a job to apply for. Go to: http://www.oxfam.org.uk/involved/jobs/jobsearch.htm
Apart from that, York is full of charities like Help the Aged, St Leonard's Hospice etc. but they mostly rely on volunteers.
The easiest way to get a job is to just go there and try a temping agency for clerical work. Whilst temping you can then keep your eyes open for jobs more suited to you. You can also help a charity in your spare time of course. I used to walk dogs for RSPCA in York.
Finally, remember that you can widen the search by looking in Leeds as well. Many people commute between York and Leeds as the Leeds job market is much bigger.

hi there! York isn't the biggest centre for refugees of any sort.... if your looking for some sort of social work in that area you would be best looking to the larger cities in yorkshire. I know that a lot of kosovan refugees have been placed in Hull and Sheffield as well as other cities so try searching forthese towns. Also look at the local government/council web sites, they might have some information that will help. Don't restrict yourself to York, it really isn't that big a place........

Travel Tips for York

Great street names

by barryg23

York is full of streets with great names such as Shambles, Mad Alice Lane, Lady Peckitt's Yard, Whipmawhopmagate. You just know there is going to be great storied behind these names. In some cases, the real history is not definitively known, leading to many varied and colourful ideas explaining the names.

take a look around the Museum...

by steventilly

take a look around the Museum Gardens. You get into them either from Lendal Bridge or from the river front upstream of Lendal Bridge.

The gardens are quiet extensive, with large grassy areas, formal gardens and many shady trees. It's a great place to picnic and chill out for while.

The gardens also contain The Yorkshire Museum, and a host of other fine buildings, including the ruins of St. Mary's Abbey, The Multangular Tower and The Hospitium Museum.

Packing List

by sbrookes

We took the trains for three weeks of travel four days here and there. Our American Tourtistor luggage had large 6 inch wheels that were not effected by brick walkways, rail tracks, etc. Walking shoes.... My last trip without a digital camera. We were ready for rain... Had very little. We used the internet for all our booking of places to stay. Our favorite site had something to do with hound dog???

Look at the fire engines........

by leics

The York fire station seems to have all its tenders and rescue vehicles smartly polished and on display far more than any other UK fire station I have come across. I don't really know why this is, but you can certainly see a fine array of vehicles standing on their forecourt (there are three more hidden behind the one in the photo!).

If you are lucky, you will also see a fine array of York's best fire fighters. This seems to be particularly appreciated by the many 'hen' parties which descend on York at weekends! ;-)

(For those who don't know this custom, a 'hen' party consists of a woman who is about to be married and her female friends spending jolly time together away from their menfolk. The male version is a 'stag' party.)

YORKSHIRE DALES

by keeweechic

West of York is the naturally beautiful area of the Yorkshire Dales, designated as one of England and Wales ten national parks. The Dales lie between Kirkby Stephen in the north, Leyburn in the east, Skipton in the south, and Kirkby Lonsdale and Sedbergh in the west. More remote and less dramatic than the Lake District but easier to get away from the crowds. There are many peaks that rise above 2000 feet in this area which offer some great views.

The Dales are made up of mountains, waterfalls, ruined castles and abbeys with amazing caves systems. The famous 268 mile Pennine Way passes through the Yorkshire Dales. This is ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ and ‘Emmerdale’ countryside.

Don’t forget to sample some of the wonderful ice cream in the Dales.
