The day to day operation of the campsite covers a wide range of duties which will include using the reservations system, ensuring the facilities blocks are kept clean, maintaining the site, completing any required paperwork such as daily banking procedures and maximising the sale of pitches. You will need to be prepared to be hands on and flexible with your day to day routine.
