Staff Testimonial

I started working at Barracudas in the summer of 2016 as a Group Coordinator in Cobham. I had an absolutely amazing time, it helped me learn how to coordinate with lots of children and how to run fun, exciting sessions. This experience has contributed greatly to my teaching knowledge and has helped my confidence in and out of the classroom grow enormously. The managers were extremely helpful and informative, without being intimidating or condescending. They made the whole experience a lot easier for the new staff and ensured we all had a great time. Thanks for a great summer, Barracudas!

Requirements: You would need to attend senior staff training days.

A day at Barracudas for an Assistant Manager:

An Assistant Manager will be present on our larger camps that have 8 or more groups. You are there to assist the senior team with day to day tasks and the operating of the camp.

Your day will start with a site tour, making sure everything is ready and areas are safe for the fun packed day ahead. Early drop off will start at 8am, it may be that you are in this area, welcoming children to camp and speaking with parents. 

During your day you may be responsible for the camp mobiles, speaking to people in the office about bookings, or a parent who needs to add their child to the late club as they cannot make the standard collection time. You may be completing financial records, or you could be in sessions getting involved with the children and staff, having fun!

At the end of the day, you may be back at the collection point, seeing children off and there for parents to speak to if needed. One last check of camp to make sure everything is secure, and you are ready for the next fun packed day tomorrow. 

The above is an example of what may be involved in your day as an Assistant Manager and is designed to give you an insight into what the role entails. Your day may be similar to this but not identical and will include a range of other tasks and responsibilities.
