Staff Testimonial

I worked as a group assistant for three weeks in the summer and had the most amazing experience. It was challenging, rewarding, enjoyable and informative. It was physically and mentally challenging because you are always incredibly busy, but you got home after a long day excited for the next. Being surrounded with so many lovely people as your colleagues was a big help and made the experience so much more enjoyable; friendships were created as a result. Everyone worked so well as a team and learnt from each other of a daily basis. There was never a day that I didn't learn something new. I gained unbelievable amounts of confidence during my time at camp and would recommend it to anyone who wishes to seek experience working in a child centred environment. I fully intend on re-applying for easter and summer again this year with the hope that it will be just as fun as last season.

Working for the UK’s top holiday Childcare provider

Working for Barracudas Activity Day Camps isn’t just about fun activities, exciting socials and (sometimes) hot sunny weather. It’s actually about the quality childcare we provide, the buzz you get from seeing the children grow in their abilities and working with other amazing professional staff!

At Barracudas we put a lot time, effort and man hours into selecting and training our staff.  This is so we can not only deliver a great service to our customers, but also maximise your experience and knowledge when working with children.

If you are selected to work with us you are given the opportunity to go on a number of free training courses which will begin to enhance your childcare experience. These range from first aid courses to courses on the welfare of the children during intense activity sessions. We give you a full days training before you start working for us which includes health and safety training, relating specifically to the children on camp. We also hold a child protection workshop which gives you an insight into how to professionally deal with matters that may occur on camp, or even in your future career.

Working for Barracudas provides staff with a huge variety of experience to take with them when moving on to more permanent roles in the future. From team work, childcare, and management, you will get to deal with real life situations and come face to face with our parents and school staff. We are a recognised and respected company over the South East of England and many of our employees have used the reference that we have provided for them on their UCAS applications or to go onto their next employer. The childcare experience that our staff get when working for us allows them to discover their passion in life, whether it’s teaching, or becoming a published author like red shirt Alex Weintroub.

So do you fancy getting some childcare experience? Our camps have a wide range of roles available to suit everyone. There are our senior roles for the more qualified, experienced staff, the Early Years positions, Group Co-Ordinator and Group Assistant roles and then the specialist roles like Lifeguards and Multi Activity Instructors.

For the working parent, Barracudas is the perfect choice of holiday childcare; fantastic locations, qualified staff, huge range of activities and safe and secure environments. And for the staff the opportunities are endless with the great variety of roles gained.
