We are looking for people who are practical, active and friendly. Duties include: cleaning; showing customers to their pitch; towing caravans; light maintenance tasks; helping customers; strimming; etc. The work could also involve duties in the Leisure Park; these could range from supervising play equipment to catering, distributing leaflets to promote the Park, working in the entrance kiosk or shop. This is a varied and interesting role which would suit an enthusiastic, reliable couple. A detailed Job Description is included in the application pack.

Please phone or email with your land address for an application pack: Tel: 01803 712598, Email: Woodlands Grove Caravan & Camping Park, Dartmouth, South Devon TQ9 7DQ.
