Do you speak French? Are you interested in History? Do want to spend the summer working outdoors with children?

We are now hiring for students and graduates to work at our summer camps at Chateau Beaumont in France and Ford Castle in Northumberland.

This is a wonderful opportunity to land a summer job that you will really enjoy.

We require enthusiastic and outgoing people to work with us as General Assistants. You will join a young and vibrant team to help deliver great learning and activity holidays to international students from France, Spain, Italy and Holland.

Responsibilities include assisting with the planning and delivery of language classes and activity sessions, as well as accompanying groups on excursions and off-site adventures. You will also pitch in with food preparation, meal time and break time supervision, and general housekeeping duties.
