Staff Testimonial

I worked at Barracudas in Bedford for 1 week at Easter as the Dance and Drama instructor and 4 weeks in the summer as a Lifeguard in 2016. Everyday is different at Barracudas, there are lots of great and fun activities for the children which are also fun for the staff to instruct and get involved in too. The staff are all very friendly and by the end of camp you are all great friends. The management team are all very helpful and guide you well when needed. Working for Barracudas has given me the extra experience I have needed to pursue my goal of becoming a teacher and has given me great confidence towards my current teacher training. I have also learned different sports and skills that I can use in the future. Barracudas is an incredible company to work for and I would highly recommend it to anyone who would like to pursue a career working with children.

Barracudas are able to accept a DBS check which you have obtained through another employer, but it must have been issued within the last three years before camp has started and cover you for the duration of your contract.

Please also be aware that all staff working on camp need to have a valid DBS check, if you do not have a valid DBS through Barracudas or another organisation you will need to undergo an Enhanced Disclosure Check prior to working with us.

To obtain a DBS through Barracudas if you have been offered employment please call the office on 01480 497533 and speak to the relevant person.
