5 Reasons to Work Seasons

When In2action first started in 2004, the idea of heading away on a seasonal job abroad was alien to most 18-30 year olds. A holiday in the sun, with friends or family – sure, but a job? One that requires you not only to pack your lunch but also your life into a suitcase for a period of 6 to 9 months? Relatively unheard of.


Throughout the early 2000’s and beyond, with the advent of low-cost airlines and cheaper national and international travel, tourism quickly became a multi-million pound industry, with companies fighting to ensure the best of the best were at their check in desks, on their coaches and entertaining holiday makers in their resorts, both here in the UK and abroad. In the In2action Head Office alone, there’s people who did 8, 9 or even 10 seasons before finally hanging up their flipflops; so what is the real pull of working a season, and why do so many of us (the author of this blog included) come back year after year? We dug deep into our memories & asked around…

  1. The lifestyle. With In2action there’s never a dull moment. When work is done there’s always something to do – whether that be heading out on a boat trip, a jeep safari or a trip to explore the local area, or perhaps choosing to relax pool-, beach- or lakeside, there’s always something to do and people to do it with…
  2. The family. When you work for In2action you’re part of the team, and part of the family. Living and working together is a fantastic way to make friends for life; friendships that outlive the seasonal lifestyle are frequent and many of our current and ex-colleagues have stayed in contact over the years.
  3. The variety. There are so many job roles to consider, and many of our current and previous staff members have tried their hand at plenty of them! You might work alongside school kids in the UK, run kids clubs in Europe, or deliver family activities in Montenegro or Turkey. Many of our staff work with one of our ski or Lapland partners in the winter too.
  4. The job. It is so rewarding to interact with people, inspire children and adults, and improve your own skills. With positions in kids’ clubs, holiday parks, schools adventure sites or in crèches there’s something for everyone – you might even find yourself running a canoeing session or perhaps even instructing one of our brilliant high ropes courses. Every day is different – a lifetime away from a repetitive 9-5!
  5. The opportunities. We’re proud to have staff teams that are full of vigour and we love to bring out the best in people. We run a Management Development scheme each year to ensure that talent is recognised, and that we have the best supervisors, managers and co-ordinators in place across all our sites.
