I have worked for first choice holidays in Lanzarote as a kids rep. It was an alright season. Its long hours and we got an day and a half off a week not bad money for seasonairing about £500 per month better than some tour operators i've worked for.
What you do in the job is entertain the children by doing themed sessions useually your with a group of reps rotaed on. We also did hotel shows and coach transfers. You do welcome meetings as well to sell the kids club to the parents.
We went on a 5 day training in blackpool where we learnt about the job role health and safety and found out our resort here as well.
The interview I had to a presentation. I can't remember what I did as its nearly 3 years ago.
I'd advise applying for jobs like this cos its a great lifestyle. I've been doing jobs like this since 2007 and love it.
If you have any more ?'s just ask

Hi, I worked for In2Action this year,
It's a really good company to work for as they train you before you get sent out to site. The week runs from Sunday to Friday, giving you Saturdays off,. All the session materials are pre-prepared and you run off a session plan, so you don't have to stress about what to do.
If you've got any questions about them feel free to message me.
