It’s safe to say that 2020 didn’t really turn out to be the year any of us were expecting! That aside, we’re working hard in the shadows to ensure that we bounce back stronger. We hope to continue on our mission to provide exceptional holidays for our guests, and awesome work opportunities for our staff as soon as humanly possible.

Like most businesses in the Travel Industry, we’re facing unprecedented challenges; however, we continue to do everything within our power to negotiate the ever-changing circumstances surrounding, not only the Coronavirus pandemic, but also, the yet unknown impact of Brexit upon how we do what we do.

Throughout the summer seasons, you can join the team working at one of our beautiful beach resorts based in either Greece, Italy, Croatia or Spain. As the winter kicks in and the snow starts to fall, it’s time to 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 give our guests confidence that every element of their holiday, is delivered by people who care.

Our summer seasons stretch from April to November, and the winter seasons start in early December and take you through to April, so 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 discover the 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 Active Holidays, and also relevant to any future job role.
