Maintenance & Gardening internship

RCN la Ferme du Latois, Coëx - Vendéé

"During an internship in maintenance & gardening at RCN, you learn a lot and no day is the same. I actually really liked the combination between technical service and landscaping, but if you prefer to focus on one of these areas during your internship, this is often possible too." (Patrick, maintenance & gardening intern at RCN Holiday Parks)

What you will be doing

During this internship, you will learn everything you need to know about the maintenance and operation of our buildings, accommodations and grounds. You'll handle maintenance tasks, including working on electrical and water systems, pipes, and various on-site projects.

From changing a broken lamp to resolving any restroom issues, you're the go-to person for quick fixes. Beyond that, you're the hands behind trimming the bushes, maintaining landscapes, and overseeing essential upkeep tasks, such as monitoring pool water quality. This means you will spend a lot of time outdoors, surrounded by beautiful nature. Together with your teammates, your collective efforts create the perfect setting for our guests to have an unforgettable holiday.

And of course, the most important thing during your internship is that you learn what you need to learn and that you contribute to a wonderful, pleasant experience for our guests!

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

  • You are at least 18 years old;
  • Experience is a plus, but not a must. Passion and energy go a long way;
  • You pursue a relevant education, for example in a technical field or landscaping;
  • You speak English (knowledge of Dutch or French is not a requirement, but an advantage);
  • Your internship period will be around the summer holidays.

What we offer

An internship at RCN is good for:

  • Your wallet. Is your internship for longer than two months? Then you will receive an internship allowance of €590 per month. An internship allowance is also available for shorter internships.
  • Flexible hours. Start, duration and hours are negotiable, depending on your educational requirements;
  • Independence. You can stay at the park with your colleagues if the commuting distance is too great. This also means easy social contact on days off and after working hours;
  • Your development. You will be well supervised and can gain or share professional expertise with us. Working in an international team is also great for your language development!
  • Employee discounts and activities. Such as drinks, joint activities and discounts on restaurants on site;
  • Nice colleagues. Yes, really! You make international friends;
  • Another. RCN uses its profit distribution for people who need help. Your work contributes to this as well.

 

In short: an internship abroad is an experience to remember!
