Location: Greece

“For this important position, we’re looking for an enthusiastic and hard working individual.

Job Summary

BeyondBeach are looking for an enthusiastic and hard working individual. You’ll be supporting the waterfront team to create a professional and safe environment in which to deliver a range of activities to all of our guests. This is an independent role, where you will often work without direct supervision. There are a number of important and critical tasks that must be dealt with each week to ensure all equipment is safe to use. Decisions must be made and initiative must be used. The responsibilities that are tied to this job role must not be underestimated. The safe operation of activities is hugely dependent on a strong and successful maintenance program. 

You will need to be confident using tools, be eager to learn new skills, have basic computer skills, have excellent time management skills and have a strong awareness of the importance of H&S systems. Full training for job specific skills such as board repair, powerboat care and boat checks will be given, but you must be confident that learning practical skills like these are something you will embrace and understand. 

Your primary role is to ensure that as much equipment as possible is available to guests at any one time. You will need to repair equipment quickly, but also to a high standard.  This will include the repair of windsurf boards, sailing boats, paddle boards, kayaks, powerboat hulls, powerboat engines etc. As well as repairing the equipment in a timely fashion you will be expected to show consideration for the aesthetics of the repair. For example you will need to show attention to detail regarding board graphics and boat colour. In addition to direct repair work you will take on broader responsibilities linked to equipment care such as: routine cleaning, spares ordering, stock checks, tool inventories, record keeping and fuel deliveries. Your routine tasks will be formatted as a weekly and monthly checklist. You will need to manage your time around these routine tasks to prioritise repairs as and when they are needed. You will need to be someone that responds well to working with a checklist and enjoys the job satisfaction that comes from finding time efficient ways to manage routine tasks against ad-hoc tasks. You will need to be someone that understands the importance of record keeping and ensuring that archived documents create a strong paperwork trail to call back on when needed. 

There are two secondary aspects of the role,  General DIY and Watersports Assistant. Examples of tasks that may fall under General DIY are – painting walls, fixing staff house issues, creating mooring weights, building racks and making signage. For the Watersports Assistant element you may be required to work with the beach team at busy times, as a minimum you will work 1.5 days per week helping on the waterfront. At times when your maintenance work is minimal this will be more. 

With the support and guidance of the Beach Club Manager and Supervisor you will carry out efficient and cost effective working practices that ensure all equipment is looked after in the best way possible. You will encourage all staff to adapt preventative measures with regard to equipment damage. You will understand that your working hours will not be set in stone and may on occasion be dictated by the operational needs of the centre. For example you may have to work late to fix a boat for use the following day. You will always strive to repair equipment as quickly as possible, to ensure that we are meeting our guests expectations. 

In all that you do you will need to lead by example and have a positive approach to your work.  You will help the Beach Club Managers and Supervisors to motivate the team to show respect and care for the equipment. In order to support this aim you will be heavily involved in the early season staff training, regarding equipment care. You will also be responsible for the set up and pack up of the equipment at the start and end of each season. Managers will be on hand to support you and offer a daily plan but it will be your responsibility to ensure that all equipment is handled with care, rigged correctly and where needed fixed prior to use, or prior to storage. 

You will be given access to a company vehicle to make use of. This car will need to be looked after and cleaned by you on a regular basis.
