What to expect in Sunny Beach

Sunny Beach's reputation could certainly overtake both Kavos and Magaluf as Europe's most explosive party paradise.

A purpose built resort that sprawls along the sizzling coast of Bulgaria, Sunny Beach hosts thousands of tourists each summer, there to experience the party atmosphere and cheap prices. It's even been ranked as the best value holiday destination by Post Office Travel Money - time to order that extra round!

What type of people get jobs in Sunny Beach?

If you’re always up for a party and drinking for 24 hours sounds like a lovely way to spend a day off, Sunny Beach is for you. We would particularly recommend Sunny Beach for those with a penchant for bar crawls - there’s so many to choose from that you’ll be spoilt for choice!

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.



What type of jobs are available in Sunny Beach?

Most jobs available in Sunny Beach will revolve around the nightlife, such as Bar work, Restaurant work, Ticket Selling and working for some of the biggest events companies.If you’re a natural performer, you’ll be right at home guiding the bar crawls. Confident and energetic people will excel - not only will you be herding plenty of tipsy tourists, you’ll be providing entertainment and joining in on the fun along the way.

When is the best time to get a job in Sunny Beach?

The season runs from May to September, we’d recommend committing to a minimum of two months if you’re not able to do the full season so you can experience as much as possible - a month will definitely not be long enough! 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!



What are the wages like in Sunny Beach?

The wages in Sunny Beach are generous, and this will go far as the cost of living is minimal.

If you really want to make money, try ticket selling or shots - commission based rolls always have the highest earning potential!



How many hours a day will I be working in Sunny Beach?

Hours and shifts for working in Sunny Beach will vary depending on your job of choice. Ticket sellers can expect to be out enhancing their tan on the job, whilst bar workers will obviously start later. The average shift is between 4-6 hours, this leaves you with plenty of free time to visit the waterpark, lounge by the beach, or even try the local paintball track!

As the pay is so good and the shifts are so short, most of our Summer Takeover crew work every day to maximise their earnings. See our jobs tab for more information. Work hard, play harder…
