Tips for club rep jobs abroad

Club rep jobs abroad are a popular choice for young and energetic Britons hoping to make some money while having fun in the sun. Duties usually include selling and promoting products (like drinks or tours), liaising between managers and customers, and making sure that everyone is having a good time - and are therefore likely to return.

Are club rep jobs for you?

You'll have to be outgoing and love working with people. You'll have to be able to think on your feet and respond to changing situations in an effective manner. You will have to be approachable, with excellent customer service skills and preferably good sales skills as well. To work abroad in any job, you have to be motivated, independent and self sufficient.

The recruitment process

Club rep jobs will often be advertised in British media, because English speaking staff are in high demand in areas that are popular with British holiday makers. Remember that these are highly sought after positions are you're likely to face stiff competition from other applicants. It's therefore important to make sure that your CV and cover letter reflect your skills and abilities as best possible. Cvwriting.net offers some great tips to help write and optimise your application. Remember too that foreign employers may not exercise the same level of political correctness (or have the same employment discrimination laws) as we do in the UK. Club rep employers are often only interested in young, good looking candidates. This is, of course, totally subjective so don't take it personally if you don't get the first position you apply for.
