Everything you need to know about working in Zante summer 2019.
Zante is a little haven, with beautiful beaches and scorching dry heat. WIth a transfer time of only ten minutes, it’s certainly the most convenient resort. The time from stepping off the plane and relaxing with a cheeky cocktail is minimal!
With low prices, and high temperatures, sun worshippers that want to get the most from their money should walk this way. As if that wasn’t enough, it’s our only resort with a turtle sanctuary - perfect fodder to ease a hangover.
This is an ideal starter resort for anyone that hasn’t worked abroad before. Typically drawing a younger crowd thanks to the cheap prices and happy go lucky vibe, you’ll find it easy to get to find jobs in Zante, get to know everyone and get to grips with island life. Workers are in really high demand here, so you’ll have a job sorted 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 Zante will revolve around the nightlife, such as Bar work, Restaurant work, Ticket Selling etc. 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!
Early Zante workers are our first guests to head off, dates run from April 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!
Just finished my second year abroad with Summer Takeover and they’ve made it just as amazing as the last!
I honestly had the best summer ever! I went to Zante on the 6th of June and I really wish I went earlier! I couldn’t thank Summer Takeover and our reps Dan and Jordan enough! They went about and beyond to make sure everyone hadn’t the best time! Can’t wait to go back next summer!
I went to Zante with Summer takeover on 23rd may this year, I spent 3 months working for Tidal boat party which was the best experience I’ve ever had I loved it!! I met some amazing people who became family and friends for life, the reps (Dan and Jordan) we’re amazing always kept everyone happy and in spirit, I’d recommend Summer takeover mainly for if it’s your first season working abroad as it helps you meet people easier and opens opportunities to multiple jobs.
This was my second year with summer takeover and as normal there was no disappointment in it!
I arrived in Zante with Summer Takeover on the 16th of May, I met some friends for life and worked on Tidal, the sickest boat party in Zante. Dan and Jordan were quality reps, always there for everyone, whatever the problem, helped secure jobs and further accommodation. Will recommend ST to anyone wanting to work abroad.
Just wana say thanks to summer takeover for giving me the best summer ever. Went to Zante and had unreal time.
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

I went to Zante on the 23rd of May 2018 with summer takeover! I spent just over 2 months working for tidal and pure beach club which I got by being apart of summer takeover. I had the most amazing experience and it’s all thanks to the company!
Summer takeover made my experience of working in Zante excellent. The staff are always happy to help and always ask how things are going. They helped me get a job within a day of arriving in Zante. They sorted me out accommodation also while I was out there and just made my experience a whole lot easier and organised. If anyone is looking to work abroad in the summer 100% go through summer takeover.
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.

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.

The average wage is between €30-50, this is absolutely plenty when you consider that a beer or a vodka will be around €3, and Zante measures are generous!

Hours and shifts 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 time to go on a turtle spotting excursion, visit the waterpark, or go for a round of mini golf!
