Jobs at Watergate Bay

How many people can say the beach is their workplace? Not many, but if you work for us it goes with the territory. The beach is what we’re all about.


This well-oiled and friendly team is responsible for the smooth running of the hotel. Housekeepers work behind the scenes in all areas of the business, ensuring their own high standards are met all year round. Applicants will have a keen eye for detail and pride in their work.


Front desk

Our colleagues at Front Desk are the first and last people to see our guests. Friendly, welcoming and expert in the local area, they’ll happily suggest the best places for afternoon walks, dinner and upcoming events. To fit in with this team you’ll be enthusiastic, sociable and have great communication skills.

Kids’ Zone

Arts and crafts, table tennis tournaments, interactive stories; the Kids’ Zone is a place for imaginative, creative and fun people. You’ll help to design new themes, supervise our younger guests and, with visiting entertainers like filmmakers and graffiti artists, learn new skills.
