This is a challenging yet fun role which combines the delivery of our core activities along with the delivery of PGL's guest care programme. You'll need plenty of energy, enthusiasm and have a great sense of humour.

PGL 'Groupies' are at the heart and soul of the holidays we offer. Providing a link between the centre management and our guests, this role is pivotal to the success of the group's stay with PGL. You will be on hand to entertain, offer practical advice and deal with unexpected situations, making sure your group enjoys a fantastic experience with PGL.

Key Responsibilities

You will help the visiting party leader organise their group and ensure they are kept up to date with the day's programme of events. During the summer holidays, many of our guests are unaccompanied teenagers, and you will act in a supervisory role to organise your group to be ready for the day's sessions.

Full of initiative, you must be able to think on your feet and have excellent problem solving and communication skills. A key part of your role is the organisation and delivery of a dynamic evening entertainments programme.
