Summer Activities Manager

Challenge yourself this summer! Do you have what it takes to manage a team, whilst planning and promoting a student activity programme? If so, this role could be the one for you!

EF is searching for energetic and organised individuals to join our team as Activities Managers this summer. This is the perfect opportunity to develop your managerial skills whilst gaining experience with an international company.

With EF, you’ll be part of a fast-paced and dynamic international working environment. With over 50 years of experience, we bring together teenagers from across the globe, turning the unfamiliar into the unforgettable, by giving them the summer experience of a lifetime.

What will you be doing?

Working with the summer management team to deliver an exceptional experience to our students, you will have the overall responsibility for the activity programme in your school.

You will be directly involved in shaping our student's experiences. Planning and delivering everything from interactive games for small groups or to large wow events of over 1000 students.  You will be supporting a team of local and international leaders in ensuring all activities give the students a sense of the local culture, whilst being safe and unforgettably fun at the same time!

On a daily basis, you will be part of a diverse team and community; liaising with our local suppliers as well as motivating and shaping your team of leaders to create the summer of a lifetime for every student. No two days will be the same; you will go from completing schedules and administrative tasks to jumping on stage at the disco to fire up the crowd!

What will you take away?

After a summer as an EF Activities Manager, you will have taken your management skills to the next level. Your communication skills will have been maximised by working with different cultures and backgrounds to ensure a smooth and seamless delivery of every activity. You will have used your initiative and creativity to enhance the student experience every step of the way, building upon the resources provided by EF to deliver a world-class product. You will have refined your natural leadership skills and have demonstrated the confidence to manage teams of individuals from all over the world.

Who will you be working with?

In EF we are 52,000 staff, faculty and teachers, working in over 612 offices and schools across 52 countries, and have a global presence in 116 countries. But we are also a local team of managers, teachers, accommodation, student services and activities coordinators (plus many more) who run the school together. We have different backgrounds and many stories to share.

What is required?

At EF, we all have an "above and beyond" mindset, never settling for status-quo. We are organised but flexible, maintaining a balance of professionalism and fun with all that we do. If you are a passionate individual with management experience and a high attention to detail and are looking to take on your next challenge, we want to hear from you!

We need you to be legally able to work in Ireland. Therefore, you need to have a Ireland/EU passport or a work permit. To keep up with the standards in our school, you also need to have a fluent level of English.

Our Activities Manager roles are available for 4-12 weeks during June, July & August.

EF is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people. All posts are subject to Garda vetting and character reference checks.
