A small enclave surrounded by olive trees and perched above the glittering Ionian Sea, The Peligoni Club offers an unrivalled place to spend a summer working abroad.
The Peligoni Club
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.
Life At Peligoni
Outside of working hours, our staff are free to enjoy some of the facilities that our guests have access to. They might decide to join an early morning yoga session, go for a sail in the afternoon, work on their windsurfing skills in the early evening and perhaps enjoy a cocktail or two on a party night.
Our staff love to use the club’s watersports facilities during their time off to try something new or improve on skills they’ve already got. This is always, however, at the discretion of our Beach Manager and guests will always come first. You will, on occasion, be invited to visit the club’s restaurant and bars, where you will receive a generous discount on selected drinks. Whenever you are in the club, whether working or not, you are representing Peligoni and therefore need to be respectful and presentable. Our guests dress to impress in the evenings, so you should do the same. Bear in mind that we have over 130 staff during peak season!
We encourage everyone to get involved in all aspects of the club: joining guests on quiz night, getting competitive in the weekly sailing regatta, showcasing talent during our open mic nights, taking part in the infamous ‘beach team skit’ and getting the party started.
Work At Peligoni
A working day could start early, getting the club ready for the day ahead and working hard to provide fantastic service in hot and sunny conditions. It could be starting in the afternoon and working through into the evening, while our guests party into the small hours. It could even begin with you hosting on our Shipwreck boat trip, and end making cocktails at a beautiful villa.
Regular weekly events along with special occasions such as weddings and parties take a huge amount of preparation from everybody. Moving furniture, cooking exquisite meals, preparing cocktails and driving immaculate guests all create the perfect day. As such, no two days are the same at Peligoni, and our dedicated and flexible team are rewarded by the glistening Ionian on our doorstep, and a group of friends to create a hugely rewarding experience.
Meals are provided at the club for all of our staff. Catering for over 100 people can be a daunting task, however we have a very skilled team who provide delicious and nutritious meals, three times a day. Please inform us of any food allergies before coming to Greece.
Life Beyond The Club
As beautiful as the club is, we know that you’ll want to escape your workplace every now and then. Our staff often spend their days off exploring the island, taking boat trips, lazing in the sun and enjoying island life. We have vehicles available for staff to enjoy their days off, so decide who’s driving, grab your towels, and explore!
Snorkel with turtles at Keri Beach, visit an island winery, watch the sunset over Shipwreck beach, go shopping in Zakynthos Town, or just relax with a cocktail in hand at Porto Roxa. Packed with things to do, Zakynthos is a great place to enjoy your time off.
To drive whilst in Greece, you must hold a full valid UK/EU driving license, be 21+ and pass our in-house driving assessment.
We provide live-out accommodation for our overseas team and have a few different places which we use to house everyone. You will share a room with two or three of your like-minded colleagues. We provide all bed linen and towels for your convenience (and luggage weight!). All of the accommodation is either within a short walk or drive of the club and the local port, Agios Nikolaos, home to a selection of bakeries, shops and restaurants.
Some of the staff accommodations have wifi, and you are welcome to use it at the club (when you’re not on shift!) although it is not fast enough for downloads. Most of the restaurants in the nearby port have free wifi.
Our largest staff accommodation does have a swimming pool, open during the day. All staff are welcome to use the pool facilities, and we provide regular shuttles for those further away to make sure they can reach the port, make it to work on time and get back when the club closes.
