With up to 200 indoor and outdoor activities available, Center Parcs is the perfect place for families to try something new together. The Leisure team plays a key role in ensuring families feel confident, safe and happy during their activity, whatever their age or ability.

There are many opportunities in the Leisure team, and our offering of activities continues to grow. From donning an eye patch in Pirate and Princess Adventure, to whizzing around a track in Quad Bike Safari or scaling the forest canopy in Aerial Adventure, our focus is on delivering a quality experience that guests will remember, whether it’s their first or fiftieth time.


The Pottery Studio provides activities / sessions for both adults and children. In this role, you will be responsible for offering guidance and support on ceramic painting whilst providing a safe and efficient environment for our guests. Excellent customer service skills are required as you will ensure the guests' requirements are always met and naturally seek out opportunities to exceed their expectations.

As our village is open 365 days of the year, your working hours will include weekends, public / bank holidays and during Christmas and / or New Year on a rota basis.
