Terms and Conditions of Employment
Please read the terms and conditions of employment before applying for the role of Holiday Site Assistant
Typically a first year Holiday Site Assistant contract runs from April (or May) to September. Second or Third Year Holiday Site Assistants may be offered longer contracts subject to availability. Holiday Site Managers are appointed for the whole season, which starts in mid-March, ending between September-November, dependent on the Site. A small number of our sites are open all year round and are staffed accordingly.
We aim to re-employ our Sites staff (in subsequent seasons), although there is no guarantee, neither can we promise a position in the same Site each season, or that the length or number of hours per week of such contracts will be equal to or in excess of previous contracts.
Candidates must be prepared to travel to work anywhere in the UK, (including Scotland and Northern Ireland).
Pay and allowances
The Club pays the National Living Wage (NLW) from 01/03/2016, equivalent to an annual salary of £17,600. This salary is based on a full time 47 hour week and employees will be paid on a pro-rata basis dependent on their contracted hours and length of contract. The demands of the business require a flexible approach to the number of hours worked within the boundaries of the EU Working Time Regulations Legislation.
It is a condition of employment that Holiday Site Assistants provide their own accommodation. The Club will provide successful candidates with protective clothing and a uniform to wear on site. There is also help towards paying travel expenses, as the Club will reimburse the mileage cost of employees return journey from their home address to Site, subject to completion of the contract.
Successful candidates are expected to provide their own accommodation in the form of a caravan or motor home. Successful candidates will be offered a pitch, complete with an electric hook-up point, free of charge for the period of their contract, including some setting up time prior to the first day of employment.
Hours of work
Successful candidates will work a weekly average of between 30-40 contracted hours (or occasionally 20 hours in the non-peak season), over a six day period and will take one day off per week, to fit in with the day to day running of the site. Successful candidates may be required to work shifts including weekends, bank or public holidays in order to support the Club's needs. Site staff may also be required to work additional hours in order to support the business.
Leave and sick pay
Site staff are entitled to 28 working days holiday pro-rata in each holiday year (inclusive of Bank and Public Holidays). Due to the seasonal nature of the work, we do not encourage leave to be taken during the season. However, leave may be taken at the reporting manager’s discretion, for exceptional circumstances. All accrued but untaken holiday will be paid out upon termination of employment.
At the Club’s discretion, site staff will be entitled to two weeks Company Sick Pay after three months service with the Club.
