As a technician and gardening employee you will carry out a range of tasks in those areas at our beautiful holiday park. Together with your team, you will be looking after maintenance of the grounds, the swimming pool, the gardens and/or the facilities so that everything looks in apple-pie order. You’ll be helping our guests to have that carefree holiday feeling at a lovingly maintained holiday park.
What you will be doing
You will be responsible for the operational maintenance of buildings and hire facilities. You will carry out maintenance work to the installations (electrical and water), pipes and other ground-related activities and keeping the inventory in order. Has a lightbulb broken or is there a problem in the shower block? You’ll make sure that this is fixed as soon as possible. You will do all the pruning, ensure the camping pitches are neatly mown and look after general maintenance such as cleaning the swimming pool. The latter activity includes monitoring the water, maintaining the terraces around the pool and cleaning the water in the pool.
