Alrite all you lovely ppl, i've had seasonworkers as my favourite website 4 few years now considerin i got my 1st seasonal job {PGL} through here.... was just wonderin what you'z all thought would be best bet, i've worker in childcare industry since i was 16 {i'm 22 now} and last year was my 1st year where i forgot about working with kids and went tenerefe working for like 4 months with company called 'air-pro' My decision now is do i re-apply for kids rep {i applied 2 years ago an didn't make it through because stupidly i didn't research enough about the company} ORRRR do i have another mad season and go napa with everyone i met from tenerefe??????
Suggestions more then welcome Clap!!!!

Id do a kids repping job just because I think its more of a set thing and you know you'll def get a job and if you enjoy working with kids then its a bonus!!
I repped last summer with in2action and was gonna do some bar work or whatever this summer in tenerife but decided to just apply to another company for kids repping.. Apply babe :) TUI and thomas cook are still taking applications
 
Good Luck x

Angry wellllll my plans to stay where i am definitly look out the window now as really hoped i'd get this bar job here in luton but they decided otherwise so now i'm even more determined to do kids rep, just watch my luck that i've left it tooo late lol.
I already applied for in2action and they've said they're no longer taking on applications {same with first choice Dead}
Which company did u apply for in the end???
Oh an thanx for quick reply :D x

PGL, Canvas, and Holidaybreak are still taking applications. I've applied to In2action numerous times & they've never contacted me even to say I'm unsuccessfull.

Definitly not keen on going back to PGL as think a 3rd consecutive season would prob do my treat in {kinda had enough of runnning archery sessions :/}
Thanks for the heads up on the other 2 i'll be sure to apply. That's kinda bad about in2action not even replying back i heard back within like 3 days :[ good luck for future applications :D x

Have you tried thomas cook?  I know someone who applied like a week or 2 ago managed to get an assessment and have TUI stopped taking applications?
 
Yeah with in2action you have to apply like ASAP i applied for them in October 09 for last summer because they are popular & spaces are limited on their training weeks.
 
Def try thomas cook & TUI though - my assessments with them arent until 5th & 19th Feb so surely you can get one?
 
Let me know

I tried applyin for Thomas cook like 2 days ago but with the library only lettin me have an hour i couldn't get all of it finished but luckily they let me save part of the application form off so when i get chance i'll apply asap, as you mentioned 'TUI' still recruiting i may aswell try them aswell.
Just the slight problem i have about getting hold of references as i worked for agency in amazon so not sure if i should give agency reference or amazon reference :/ ANDDDD as i worked in various bars in tenerife i can't get hold of references off all them do you reckon it'll be alright still????
1 last thing lol, i haven't got my 1st aid and childcare NVQ certificate on me {even though i'm in process of getting copy sent as i llost it :S} you reckon they'd definitly have to see em????
 
Good luck with your interviews :D - X -

Hey
 
Okie dokie, im sure you will get an assessment. With references im not too sure - I think they ask for 2 maybe your college tutor or something could be one. My 1st aid runs out in May and ive been told aslong as I do a new one before training then thats fine and with your NVQ's could you not get a letter from who you done it with to just confim you are qualified & then fax them your certificates when you get them?
 
Thanks x
