Venue Holidays Campsite Representatives Roles 2020
Venue Holidays is looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic and friendly people - both young and mature, singles and couples - to join our dedicated team of overseas staff. Our Campsite Representatives are essential to our customers’ enjoyment of their holidays and a vital part of our holiday programme. If you think that you have what it takes and you would like to spend an enjoyable summer abroad, we would like to hear from you.
The season starts in March/April, and ends in September/October. Part season positions are available, but you must be able to work for at least 2 months.
Your work would include the cleaning and preparation of our high quality accommodation, welcoming arriving customers and visiting them during their holidays. There will be maintenance problems to overcome as well as routine paperwork to complete. There are also opportunities to take part in the montage or demontage procedure, which involves travelling to different campsites to put up or take down our tents and equip our accommodation units.
Being a campsite representative is hard work in sometimes challenging conditions. However there are many rewards to be had. You will be immersed in a foreign culture, in beautiful surroundings and have the opportunity to learn or improve a language skill. You will meet and work alongside like-minded people in a fun and exciting holiday environment. You will experience the enjoyment of an "outside lifestyle" and spend a summer to remember for the rest of your life.
