Description

We're looking for confident French speakers for this diverse role. Your main duty is to ensure that our guests receive exceptional service throughout their stay. You will act as the liaison between your group's teaching staff and the centre staff. Primarily, you'll be responsible for accompanying guests on excursions, ensuring itineraries run to plan, assisting coach drivers with route finding, serving evening meals and delivering a programme of evening activities for your group.

We operate an extensive World War I educational tours programme, giving you the opportunity to increase your historical knowledge of this interesting area. Staff working at Château d'Ebblinghem, whilst being employed by PGL, will deliver NST products and wear the NST uniform. NST is PGL's sister company, providing educational tours to school groups.

Your work will also involve organising and delivering a programme of evening activities for your group.

You need to possess the legal right to live and work in the UK to be considered for employment with PGL. PGL is committed to the principles of equality and diversity and welcome applicants from all sectors of the community.
