Our dates run from May to July, but you can stay on for the closing parties - we’ll help you secure further accommodation when you’re out there. If it’s your first time working abroad, we recommend going out earlier, it’s easier to get your bearings when it’s a little quieter than to jump in at the deep end mid season!
Best Summer ever 😁
Where to start? Absolutely tip top service from ST and Nathan the rep was mega helpful
Just finished my second year abroad with Summer Takeover and they’ve made it just as amazing as the last!
This was definitely a summer to remember. Summer takeover were a massive help on the job front and great people who you could speak to whether you just wanted a chat or if you had a problem. Very friendly and would recommend anyone who want to go out and work through ST. They provided me a job on Tidal as a VIP host and it was hands down the best job on the island, making friends for life.
This was my second year with summer takeover and as normal there was no disappointment in it!
If you are thinking of going abroad to work look no further than summer takeover.
Best experience I’ve ever had, everyone makes you feel at home and as your one big family
No regrets! I had the best summer; with the best people.100% recommend and would use summer takeover again!
I went on the 16th of may, was a bit quiet at the start but couple weeks later it got rammed with workers and tourist's. I Had the privilege to work for tidal for the season it was insane. Met so many great people and i have life long friends from it, defiantly doing it again next season. Peace
Summer takeover was honestly best experience I had working abroad I’ve gone with this company two years in a row I would definitely recommend summer takeover to anyone who wants to work abroad.
I went with summer takeover and felt so welcomed any troubles or worry’s I had I felt very comfortable going to Dan and Jordan, they also helped me find a job which they made very easy within the first week and most importantly showed us the best time! Deffo recommended.
Summer takeover is not one to miss out on! Met some great people who have become friends for life and had some unreal moments when I was away with the company! I'll be looking to do it all over again.
