Everything you need to know about working in Kavos summer 2019.
As Corfu’s clubbing capital, Kavos is famous for pulling in crowds of revellers. With plenty of nightlife for you to get your teeth sunk into, there’s also a secret beach to explore, authentic Greek food and 12 hours of sunshine a day. What’s not to love?
With an amazing range of bars and clubs, including an Ice Bar and an insanely popular foam-pool party hybrid, there’s always something going on. Expect the days to blur into one as you explore everything that Kavos has to offer - most of our workers extend their stay so they can fully experience every element.
If you like partying and watersports, this is the resort for you. Temperatures are hot in peak season, so it helps if you’re a sun worshipper. Jobs in Kavos are ideal for a first season, it’s easily navigated and it’ll feel like home in no time.
The majority of Summer Takeover guests travel solo, so if you’re nervous about heading out on your own don’t panic! Once you’ve secured your place you’ll be added into a private Facebook group, and given login details for our very own workers social network, SummerSphere, so you can get chatting to all the other guests before you go.
Most jobs available in Kavos will revolve around the nightlife, such as Bar work, Restaurant work, Ticket Selling and working for some of Kavos biggest events companies. If you fancy your chances at being able to make some decent commission, Shot selling or Balloons are definitely the way forward. Check out our jobs tab for the full range of job opportunities and further information!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
