Looking for something to broaden your horizons during or after uni? Working as a holiday rep could be a good option for you. We spoke to Club 18-30 rep Rebecca Francis about her experiences in the job. What made you become a Club 18-30 rep? Becoming a rep never crossed my mind until my first Club 18-30 holiday; I just didn’t want to go home. I went to Ibiza with four of my friends and from the minute we arrived it was just crazy, the reps didn’t treat us like they were our mums or dads, they were practically part of the group it was like having two extra friends on our holiday. The whole experience was just overflowing with different things to do, it will always be one of the most unforgettable two weeks of my life. Everyone knows after first year of uni you’re totally skint you definitely make the most of being a Fresher and I just knew going on a cheap holiday with hardly any spending money wouldn’t even come close to Ibiza with Club 18-30. So I thought what better way to spend my summer being around new people every week, a team that would become my family almost and a full summer in sun whilst getting paid for it…why wouldn’t you apply? How did you become a rep? Applying to become a rep was such a simple process, some people think you need to do a travel course at college or university; but that’s not the case at all….it was a simple application form which you can find on the Club 18-30 website basically just asking you questions to try and get a feel of your personality. After that if you're successful you have a first interview which is actually a pretty fun day, it’s kind of like a group interview but you get taken away for different “rounds” shall we call it in smaller groups. After that the successful lot get the chance to go to “SkegVegas” or known to the public as sunny Skegness for Academy, which is again a great weekend with loads of different tasks… then the lucky lot get told at the end of the weekend where their off. It’s such an amazing feeling everyone’s screaming…crying…jumping and running around its pretty surreal. Where are you based as a rep? The great thing about being a rep is that you get the chance to go to different destinations every summer usually, luckily for me my first year was spent in Faliraki (Rhodes) and last year I was in Malia (Crete) both were absolutely amazing experiences and completely different. This year I’m off to Ayia Napa and I honestly cannot wait. What does your job entail? Many people think it’s going to be a holiday…sadly it’s not. Although you do get the perks of a holiday all summer long it is still hard work, but when I say hard I must admit it is such a rewarding job. Being a rep means you have a lot of responsibilities on duty and even off. Our first priority is making sure all our guests have the best possible holiday ever, leaving with a lasting unforgettable memory, but we still need to make sure everyone is safe and sound.
