Are you looking for a change of scenery or a new adventure? Zante might be the perfect destination for you! Located in the Ionian Sea, off the western coast of Greece, Zante is a popular summer destination known for its stunning beaches, turquoise waters, and vibrant nightlife. However, Zante is not just a holiday spot, it’s also a great place to work. Here are five reasons why you should consider working in Zante.

  1. Work in the tourism industry

Zante is a popular tourist destination, especially during the summer months. The island attracts millions of visitors every year who come to enjoy the sun, sea, and sand. As a result, there are plenty of job opportunities in the tourism industry. You can work in hotels, bars, restaurants, water sports centers, or even as a tour guide. Working in the tourism industry will give you the chance to meet people from all over the world, improve your language skills, and gain valuable experience in customer service. You’ll also be able to earn a decent wage, as many employers offer seasonal contracts with competitive salaries.

  1. Learn a new language

If you’re interested in learning a new language, Zante is a great place to do it. Greek is the official language, but English is widely spoken, especially in the tourism industry. However, you’ll also have the chance to learn other languages, as many tourists come from different parts of the world. If you work in a hotel, for example, you may be able to practice your French or German with guests. Learning a new language can be a valuable skill for your future career and personal development.

  1. The Nightlife

If there’s one thing that the people of Zante can do, it’s host a party.  Perhaps this is why it makes it such an attractive destination for holiday makers, meaning there’s plenty of ‘party’ jobs available for Summer Takeover workers.  It’s rare for a night at work to end as just that, you’ll be sucked into the revelling and partying until the early hours of the morning.

  1. The Scenery

You’re going to legit fall in love with this place.  It’s beautiful beyond words, and you wouldn’t be the first to develop a ‘spiritual connection’ with the island’s many secret spots.  We recommend Shipwreck Cove, Turtle Bay and Zante town to start you off on your adventures.

  1. The Food

You can’t really go wrong with a Gyros, a cousin of the kebab that you could definitely eat drunk OR sober.  Greece is know for tasty meals with portion sizes that won’t exactly leave you hungry.  When you’re feeling fancy and want to opt for a meal that involves knives and forks, you’ll be absolutely spoilt for choice – especially when it comes to seafood.  With restaurants dotted by the beach you know you’re getting the catch of the day every day.  If you’re going to do this in true Summer Takeover style, you’ll be washing it all down with the local beverage of choice – ouzo.

  1. The Boat Parties

It’s pretty hard to go wrong with a boat party, unless you buy tickets for one knowing full well that you get violently seasick at the thought of a bath. Zante boat parties are just that little bit more special – you’re surrounded by epic scenery that gets all the more beautiful when you’re misty-eyed from too many tequila.

  1. The Experience

Once you’ve done a season in Zante you’ll have been bitten by the bug.  Unfortunately for you this means every summer of your life for the next few years will belong to a sunny island, but we can think of worse fates!
