Summer Jobs Help Guide

Ideas for the summer thin on the ground, wondering what you are getting into? There are hundreds of summer jobs in the UK, Europe and elsewhere in the world suitable for just about anyone. It's just a matter of finding the right company for you.

It doesn't matter if you are a student, career breaker or just want a temporary change of scene or a completely new beginning, working a summer season abroad or in the UK is a great way to expand your horizons and meet new people. This section of Season Workers is dedicated to providing you with an insight into the world of working summer seasons.

If you can afford it you might want to spend the season qualifying in an outdoor sport or doing a TEFL qualification. Some people have even set their own ventures up out in resort to fund their season, the options are pretty endless!

You can choose to get work before you set off, or just go and try your luck in the resort or area you want to work in. We wouldn't advise it but you don't even have to follow the traditional route of securing work with an established operator before you go.

Where else to look

The language barrier and legal difficulties can make finding work on the spot in some European resorts very difficult. Of course, you should be able to find what you want right here on Season Workers. However, there are a multitude of alternative options open to you. Go direct to tour operator and employer websites, social media can obviously help for background research and specialist media like the Caterer list seasonal jobs abroad and in the UK as they arise.

Stages of the season

Most of the time the early season is tough. Resorts and centres need to be prepared to accept clients and deliver what they expect to get in return for their hard earned cash. This can quite often mean that specialist staff have to get involved in toilet cleaning and menial set up duties. The mid season can be tough if not handled correctly and then the end is upon you before you know it. Again, Season Workers should have something to help you at every stage but if we are missing something please`let us know.
