Whether you’re a volunteer or a member of staff, it’s more than “just a job” when you’re working at Lendrick Muir. We have been talking to Kathryn, whose job is in the Centre Office and Reception, about why she works for Lendrick Muir. As part of the administration team she is one of the first people you will speak to when organising a visit to Lendrick Muir.
“I have been working at Lendrick Muir for over 8 years now and I love my job! SU Scotland’s vision is to see all the children and young people of Scotland exploring the Bible and responding to the significance of Jesus. In my job, in the office at Lendrick Muir, I help make that happen.
Thousands of people come to Lendrick Muir every year with their church, youth group, school or on a SU Holidays. A large part of my job is to communicate with all these groups. I help them prepare for their visit as well as ensure they have a fantastic time while they’re here. It’s great that I get to talk to so many people from different walks of life. My job enables their ministry to take place at Lendrick Muir.
There are numerous reasons I love my job at Lendrick Muir. Firstly, we have a brilliant team. I really enjoy working closely with my colleagues. In my job I get to work alongside all the other departments in the Centre. Together we plan, prepare and deliver an amazing experience for our guests. With activities, food and accommodation to organise there is a lot to coordinate; a few days away at Lendrick Muir could be up to a year in the planning! Secondly, my job is really varied. I love that no two days are the same. I enjoy helping other people fulfil their plans. The hard work is definitely all worth it when the centre is full of young people having fun and hearing about Jesus.
Lendrick Muir is a special place and our surroundings are absolutely beautiful. Consequently, it’s a joy to come to work every morning and see the glory of God’s creation all around me. I know many people have had amazing experiences at Lendrick Muir over the last 20 years. We want that to continue so we are constantly striving to improve what we do. I’m so glad I can be a part of that process as everyone on the team gets to share their ideas to make Lendrick Muir even better for the next generation.
In short, with the chance to serve God and the young people of Scotland with the skills God has given me, brilliant colleagues and beautiful surroundings, why wouldn’t I love my job?!!”
