Your working week, throughout the season, will vary but on average it will work out at 40 hours. Certain weeks, during the season, might be busier than others. Start & end dates depending on your availability, with the possibility to extend to winter season.
The rota will be organised at the beginning of the season and if any changes are made you will be notified at the weekly team meeting or by your manager at the earliest convenience (for example somebody is sick, and you need to replace them).
We will provide you with a training, after which you will be responsible of making sure our guests enjoy their holiday.
Each day, our meals (breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner) will be prepared in our central kitchen, and served to our guests in the comfort of their accommodation when they've chosen a catered holiday.
We are looking for people to take pride in their work. Those who take satisfaction in a job well done, no matter if it's a job big or small. We are looking for those who can not only maintain our standards but help improve them.

We've worked hard to design enjoyable roles that give you good time off alongside your work timetable. Whilst we are at work though, we expect everyone to take their role seriously. This is not a holiday, and we'd expect all our staff to approach their role in a dedicated and professional manner.
