Small and personal with a focus on quality over quantity, the club moulds itself around our guests and their idea of the perfect holiday. For some that might be an action packed week of watersports, yoga and tennis and for others that might be a series of long lazy lunches, time in the sun and being able to really let their hair down whilst our childcare team look after the little ones; whatever they feel like, we’ve got it covered.

With so many moving parts, this is a huge operation and we recruit up to 150 seasonal staff over the summer across a range of exciting positions from watersports instructors to bar and waiting staff, tennis coaches to spa therapists and chefs to nannies. Our staff are a mixture of experienced seasonal workers, hospitality professionals and enthusiastic students. We all work together to create the perfect destination holiday for our guests, with an emphasis on fantastic service, watersports tuition for all ages, and sophisticated socialising.

We are looking for someone to assist our senior management team with recruitment administration and to provide support to the seasonal team during the summer months. You will be based in our UK office during the winter months and then join us in Greece over the summer.

A summer season is a completely unique environment – everyone lives and works together and whilst for most it’s an unforgettable and rewarding experience it can, at times, be overwhelming and exhausting. The wellbeing of our staff is incredibly important to us and we are looking for someone who is caring and approachable who can help us to provide support to the team.

During the winter months, you will support the Head of Recruitment, as well as new applicants, by screening applications, answering queries, scheduling calls and interviews, following up on references and coordinating visa applications, amongst other administrative duties. Knowledge and experience with social media platforms including Instagram would be an advantage as ideally you will also take on our social media posts – creating and scheduling effective content to generate interest in our summer vacancies.

Whilst in Greece, you will work very closely with our department managers to ensure that the needs of our staff are being met and to help resolve any issues or conflicts that arise within the team. There will be a number of duties involved including management of staff accommodation, coordinating staff travel and logistics,  issuing uniform and ensuring all new starters and properly inducted and given a warm welcome.

This is not your regular office job – you will be expected to engage with the team in their place of work, so you may spend some of your time working with the beach team, helping out in the restaurant and being staff driver for the morning. This is a great way to build relationships and identify anyone who may be struggling and need some additional support.
