After paying holidaymakers have jumped on the beds, broken the shower and worn a hole in the floorboards, holiday companies and hotels need people to fix up the wear and tear or apply a new coat of paint to keep their properties looking good and in working order. Today we feature three places those handy with a hammer, sensational with a screwdriver and dazzling with a drill can get some holiday job action next summer.
Mark Warner invite their hotel maintenance teams to work hard and play hard in their resorts in Greece and Corsica. Mixed in with duties that come with maintaining a busy hotel, such as plumbing, electrics, carpentry, painting and decorating, there will be a time to learn a new sport and get out on the water. And once the summer is over there may be an opportunity to work the winter in one of Mark Warner’s European ski destinations.

It’s hard to predict what jobs are going to pop up after hundreds of children have passed through PGL’s centres in the UK, France and Spain, but it is the role of their general maintenance department to tackle them all. For the maintenance assistant position a background in basic maintenance skills (painting, decorating, plumbing, carpentry etc) is essential and previous experience will help your application but is not vital. There will also be opportunities to earn nationally recognised vocational qualifications. Those with the relevant skills and qualifications that come with a trade background can apply to be one of PGL’s maintenance technicians.
