Summer Jobs in England
You can work summer seasons in the UK in much the same way that you might get a job with accommodation abroad. You can travel, find new experiences and England offers plenty of seasonal work with accommodation to make this possible. The main areas of summer employment are in residential summer camps, outdoor centres and on holiday parks. England also hosts countless festivals and customer service industries that love a diverse workforce so whether you are already here in the UK or are travelling the islands there is a summer job to suit every one.
Summer Camp Jobs in England
There are hundreds of kids summer camps throughout England. Most of them have a specialism such as TEFL or outdoor activities. All of them take on a range of summer staff each year from support staff (cooking, cleaning and maintenance) to qualified instructors (TEFL teachers, outdoor sports instructors) and camp leaders. Camp Leader jobs are ideal for a returning overseas kids rep or experienced childcare staff. With almost all these jobs you get accommodation too so its just a matter of choosing which region of England you would like to work in and getting your application in.
Outdoor Adventure and Watersports Jobs
There are over 500 organisations in England that hold an outdoor adventure license. The majority of the summer jobs with these organisations are based in South West England, most roles in this region are connected with fantastic range of watersports on offer. Outdoor Jobs in England range again from qualified staff (outdoor instructors) to support staff and group leaders where you generally don't need any qualifications (depending obviously on the types of group and the activities undertaken. A large proportion of these centres need extra staff in the summer, for permanent jobs in the outdoor sector try the Season Workers Outdoor Sports section.
Holiday Parks and Campsites in England
Holiday Parks and campsites are a large employer of summer staff in England. Campsites and Caravan Parks take on wardens each summer, and the larger parks need seasonal reception staff, cleaners, ground workers and every role needed to take care of summer holiday makers. The really big sites and holiday parks like Pontins (Lancashire, Somerset, Somerset, Soffolk) and Butlins (Lincolnshire, Sussex, Somerset) need even more support staff plus extra staff like entertainers, security staff and kids club childcare workers.
General short term work can be a good earner but the usual bar / retail work is in short supply lately so you need to be a bit more imaginative. Charities take on students during the holidays to take part in street and door to door fundraising. There are also the numerous festivals in England each year which need all sorts of staff (you don't always get paid but you get in free) and England's Theme parks such as Alton Towers, Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Thorpe Park near London.
