Job Details

Kids Activity Leader (5-11 years) - Zakynthos, Greece

We believe that barefoot luxury is better shared with all ages, not just limited to “grown ups”. Our exceptional team and partners host activities for kids and teens who are grouped by school years instead of ages so they can make friends and enjoy age-relevant activities. Ultimately at Peligoni our focus is to inspire our young guests to be all they can be and to make the most of their holiday.

Over the last five years we have worked with Sharky & George, London’s coolest children’s entertainers, to curate an enchanting programme for little holidaymakers at Peligoni. Like us, they believe in the power of old-school play. This means getting outdoors, using your imagination and finding the fun in absolutely everything.
We are looking for two extremely energetic and enthusiastic individuals to work alongside Sharky & Georges’ fabulous team. 


Sharky & George join us in May half term and the high season months of July and August and are a fantastic addition for children aged 5-11 years. 
High energy and adventure is the order of the day. From the sea to the clubhouse, every part of Peligoni is a source of inspiration for a week of fun, fun and more fun. Children are split into three groups, the Spartans (9-11yrs), Olympians (7-9yrs) and the Trojans (5-7yrs). A typical day will involve a range of engaging activities - some focusing on just one group and some catering for two or all of them. 
This is not a kids club - children can opt to join just one or all of the daily activities and parents will collect them at the designated meeting point after each session. In the evenings we host two party nights a week which include a special Peligoni talent show and a disco in the den.


We are looking for two inspiring, energetic and creative people who love working with children and are not afraid of being a bit silly… most of the time! They must be caring and able to instil confidence in those who are perhaps a little nervous and need subtle encouragement to join in and always willing to go the extra mile to ensure that our younger guests have an unforgettable holiday. 
This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is looking for a job they love, in a stunning environment. In your spare time, as well as being able to explore the island and experience the local food and culture, you will have access to the club’s watersports facilities, allowing you to hone your existing skills or learn new ones in sailing and windsurfing.
