Children are never bored on a Neilson holiday. Our aim is they have an action packed fun holiday and also learn through play. Along with traditional favourite games and activities, we encourage them to try something a little different - be it cooking local delicacies or learning some of the local language and culture. The clubs run 6 days a week and we provide a wide variety of stimulating and exciting activities both on and off the water - including sailing, kayaking, nature walks, treasure trails, arts and crafts, pool games... In the evenings we either offer evening activities or a 3 hour babysitting service.

Each day, the fitness programme typically includes early morning yoga classes, pilates, aqua aerobics sessions in the pool and an evening stretch and relaxation class. In addition there will be conditioning classes, which aim to tone and strengthen with fitball or mat based activities. We offer high energy sessions each day - including Zumba, boot camp, aerobics and circuit training. We also run a number of fitness classes to complement tennis and biking. Our fitness instructors also arrange walks and group runs and can offer personal training and fitness testing.
Explore on two wheels - whether it be a scenic ride to a nearby bay for a swim and a coffee or an all day mission to conquer a mountain, Neilson bike guides help our guests to see the best trails their resort has to offer. We run up to three rides a day, varying in duration, terrain and level of difficulty in order to deliver a varied, versatile and adventurous programme. As well as leading the way, our bike guides offer guests tips and advice on off road riding and sessions to cover correct gear use, maintenance and advanced riding skills. In addition, several of our centres have a dedicated road bike guide who can assist in fitness building and triathlon training. As well as being proficient in the guiding, you will need to be skilled at maintaining the fleet of mountain and road bikes.

The Neilson Tennis programme aims to cater for all our guests ranging from children to adults and beginners to advanced players. Within the weekly structure we try to incorporate a variety of tennis based sessions to really promote how fun and rewarding the sport can be. In each resort the tennis team offers a series of group coaching sessions, private lessons, social tennis, cardio tennis, free play, kids tennis, a tournament, and on occasion booze and balls!
We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated, friendly and approachable tennis professionals to represent and deliver the Neilson Tennis programme across all our resorts.

Behind the glamorous, efficient and relaxed atmosphere of any professional yacht, there's a team with focus, skill and knowledge on all aspects of seamanship, navigation and yacht maintenance. The ultimate prize in this glitzy industry is 'super yacht' work. So we don't pull any punches here. We work at the other end of the market, introducing often complete novices to the world of yachting. Our fantastic yacht staff provide the warmest welcome, best instruction and excellent level of service. We have sailing centres in Greece (Vounaki and Retreat), both equally stunning and both with a choice of flotilla routes for all abilities and levels of experience.
Are you looking to work in a beautiful, warm and sunny location that offers you fantastic opportunities to develop your own personal skills? Do you enjoy passing on your water sports skills and experience to others? We recruit talented and qualified instructors who have experience working with children and adults in a range of water sports. In addition to sailing and windsurfing we offer water skiing and wakeboarding, paddle boarding, canoeing, kayaking, swim coaching and a lifeguarding service. All our resorts are RYA accredited and we teach all abilities. Beginners learn in a friendly and fun environment to gain confidence and intermediates and experts can work on all aspects of technique. Neilson instructors do a lot more than just instruct. Amongst other things they set up the beach, ensure safety cover, assist guests taking kit out and organise and host social events several evenings a week. Is there a better way to spend the summer?

Running a successful hotel takes a lot of good people in a variety of different positions. Each summer we recruit for nearly 200 hospitality roles, mostly within our Greek hotels. The majority of the hotel team work split shifts - hours in the morning and then in the afternoon/evening. All departments within the hotels overlap and work as one overall team. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served every day and involve setting up, serving and clearing whether you're front of hose or in the kitchen. The housekeeping team clean the bedrooms and public areas and the receptionists answer queries and process paperwork. During the day, bar staff serve drinks and snacks and in the evening provide a bar and tray drinks service through dinner and until the bar closes.

Most of our managers have been recruited from within the company. We have former chalet hosts who now manage our hotels and windsurf instructors who are the operational and commercial masterminds developing our biggest products. It takes a certain type of person to become a manager. We understand that not everyone can or wants to manage people and a product, but if you're one of those special people who thrives on pressure and wants to pursue a challenging and rewarding career then we have some great programmes in place that will encourage and help you to develop your skills into becoming a successful manager.
