With your two right hands, you can operate in various departments: grounds, swimming pool, cleaning, catering and kitchen. You will be responsible for our guests’ ultimate holiday. Needless to say, you’ll always be ready and willing to do whatever you can to make our guests feel at home.
What you will be doing
You are a true all-rounder, thrive on change and are not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in. Working at a holiday park calls for a hefty dose of flexibility. No two working days are the same. Sunny and hot? Time for ice creams, huge demand for the swimming pool and bike hire. Rainy and cold? Queues at reception, replenishing the shop’s stock and time for technical rounds or cleaning the shower blocks. Working in various departments will significantly build up your experience and knowledge!
Who we are
La Ferme du Latois is located in the scenic French countryside but also close to the sea. Formerly it was a farmstead but now it is an atmospheric park with a pleasant rural feel. The old stables is now in use as the main building and there are many other remaining references to the romantic farming past. There’s everything to do in the surrounding area. Inside quarter of an hour’s drive you’ll be on the beach. That’s just as well, because the Vendée has the most sunshine hours in the whole of France!
What we are looking for
A lot! But that’s what makes it so challenging and instructive. Working in a holiday park demands flexibility and hard work. Needless to say, you understand that this job will entail working at weekends and on public holidays, all during the holiday season.
