About Neilson Active Holidays

With Neilson Active Holidays, you’ll be working hard, but the work is fun, and there’s always plenty of time to play. You’ll need to be a natural communicator who can interact confidently with both our guests and other staff members alike.

We are bursting at the seams with amazing opportunities and we strive to be, not only the best active company to work for, but the first choice for anyone considering working overseas.
Although it’s vital that our team creates an excellent holiday experience for our guests, it’s equally important that our staff love working for us too!

Our UK Head Office team have collectively spent decades working overseas, so we know what it’s all about. We all had the time of our lives and made lifetime friends/memories with loads of like-minded people. We’re also living proof that it’s more than possible to turn the seasonal life into a solid career.

The life skills & the experience to be gained from working anywhere within our programme are absolutely priceless. You’ll likely to find a confidence you never knew you had, and all of this will stay with you throughout whatever future career path you choose.

Activities on offer include sailing, windsurfing, biking, kayaking, fitness, tennis and diving. We offer our guests beginner's courses, advanced coaching or simply the freedom to sail, bike or dive with our superb range of equipment.

Full Season roles are available from March/April/May through to November, to include a period of pre-season training and preparation and post-season close down.

Ten reasons to work for Neilson:

We’ll organise a place for you to call home and to share your adventures with new friends. The specific arrangements for this differ from resort to resort.       

3. Inclusive breakfast, lunch, and dinner
We provide you with three meals a day, seven days per week. These will be served in the majority of our resort canteens, and will include a mixture of local cuisine and the occasional treat to keep you going all season long.
(Please note that certain resorts have different arrangements)

We offer a competitive monthly salary and this will be paid directly into your designated bank account.

9. Well-deserved ‘chill’ time
You’ll enjoy one day off per week, plus additional paid holiday during the summer. Head out and explore the local area, chill out on the beach. During the winter, hit the mountain all day long and follow that up with some serious après ski.

10. All-year-round work opportunities
If you’ve got the bug for seasons and you’re having so much fun that you never want it to end. Dive into back to back summer and winter seasons.

Eligibility & Availability

We welcome applications from all UK citizens, persons of dual nationality to an EU nation, any individual who holds (or has the option to hold) an EU passport., and those with the relevant work visas to work in the EU legally.

Ideally, we’re always looking to employ full season staff. Being able to join us for the full season will give you the best chance of gaining a job with us as peak season roles are limited.

That said, we fully understand that people have other commitments, so if you’re unable to join us for a full season, don’t be put off from applying.

You’ll have the opportunity to confirm your dates of availability while completing your application. Please ensure you give us the longest possible term.
