With the majority of our guests spending most of their day in the club, food and drink are an integral part of their holiday. Our four bars provide something for everyone, with our team serving a variety of healthy smoothies and juices, indulgent cocktails and plenty of cool, crisp rosé, whilst being the perfect hosts and getting to know our guests.

Guests relaxing on the decks can order drinks from our wonderful beach service team, or ‘Deck Hands’, who come right to their sunbed so they don’t have to lift a finger and can make the most of their precious holiday time. We are looking for an enthusiastic Beach Service Manager to oversee the day to day running of our sun decks to ensure all drinks are delivered in a consistent, professional and timely manner. The role involves training, managing and motivating a small team to operate efficiently, delivering a high level of service and maintaining the club’s vibrant holiday atmosphere.

Built into the striking volcanic rock that makes up the island’s northern coastline, our white wooden decks sit metres above the deep blue Ionian Sea. Keeping our guests hydrated, refreshed or maybe a little tipsy during the sun-soaking hours, our beach service team are on hand to provide a towel after a dip in the sea and ensure our guests don’t have to move a muscle when topping up on vitamin D.

The beach service team also look after our very popular ice cream shack and assist with our daily ‘pop-up’ lunches over the high season – taking orders and helping our chefs plate up and serve tasty dishes such as tacos, poke bowls and katsu curry wraps.

Working closely with the rest of the management team, our Beach Service Manager will ensure our beach service is always running at its best, guests are always made to feel welcome and are well looked after. This is a challenging role that requires a passion for great service, commitment to the club’s ethos and the ability to manage a team with varied experience in what can often be a high-pressure environment. It is also an extremely rewarding role for those who thrive when given responsibility and gain satisfaction from developing a team.
