COVID-19 UPDATE – 11th AUGUST 2020

We are now taking provisional applications for Winter 2020/21 & Summer 2021, so please register your interest in joining our team.

Please note that due to the exceptional circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus crisis and the unknown impact of Brexit upon the business, we are proceeding with caution.

To set your expectations, we are currently operating with a heavily reduced UK Head Office team. We will therefore not be processing or responding to any applications until mid-September at the earliest.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during these difficult times.  

Neilson is the UK’s leading independent active holiday provider!

We’re a multi-award-winning tour operator with over 40 years of experience within the travel industry. We’re bursting at the seams with fantastic opportunities for anyone with a great personality, a positive attitude and a strong work ethic. 

During the summer you could work at one of our beautiful beach resorts based in either Greece, Italy, Croatia or Spain. When winter kicks in and the snow starts to fall, grab your skis or your snowboard and head off to the mountains of Andorra, Austria, Italy or France. 

We want to attract and retain the best team in the business; therefore, we’re always looking for hardworking, friendly and enthusiastic people to join us! Individuals who can build rapport with ease and always give our guests confidence that every element of their holiday is delivered by people who care! 

A summer season stretches from April to November where we have over 700 positions up for grabs. The winter season starts in early December and takes you through to April with around 400 jobs available. It’s also possible to let the fun continue all year round! 

You will, without a doubt, have the time of your life! You’ll probably find a confidence that you never knew you had. You’ll make loads of new mates and create memories that’ll last a lifetime. 

The people skills, communication skills, life skills and overall experience to be gained from working anywhere within our programme will be invaluable in developing your career within Neilson and relevant to any future job role.

“I teach windsurfing; I go windsurfing, I keep things safe. The job is different, hour-to-hour, week-to-week, we roll with the operation, and I love every minute!”
