Working as a Centre Support Assistant

Combining several different roles on a rota basis, Centre Support Assistants take responsibility for the presentation and upkeep of the centre - turning their hand to a number of different tasks.

The role of Centre Support Assistant offers individuals a chance to work as part of a highly motivated team, in a professional, friendly and supportive environment. As a Centre Support Assistant no two days would be the same as you contribute to the general presentation of the centre and ensure it is well maintained and looked after.

At some centres this role is combined with driving duties, particularly at our sites in France and Spain. In this role you may have the opportunity to try your centre's activities during your free time, building up your personal competency in the process. You may also participate in evening entertainments for our guests.

Skills

Key Responsibilities

The cleanliness and appearance of the amenities at all our centres is vitally important and is often the first thing noted by our guests.

The role itself may vary between centres and will include maintaining the cleanliness and hygiene standards of all staff and guest accommodation.

Learning and Development

When you start your job as a Centre Support Assistant you will have the opportunity to gain invaluable knowledge, skills and experience whilst working towards nationally recognised qualifications, all free of charge. Previous experience is a bonus but is not vital. If you are new to PGL and/or have catering experience within the sector you will be enrolled onto our Facilities Services Apprenticeship Programme.

This is delivered and assessed in the work place and is supported by a comprehensive centre induction, job specific training, workbooks, one-to-one observations with verbal and written feedback, and regular performance reviews. All of this will count towards the achievement of your facilities services apprenticeship.

Progression Opportunities

There are a number of opportunities for you to extend your experience, knowledge and skills at PGL. We encourage all our employees to create and maintain a Personal Development Plan (PDP) that can be used to identify and work towards their career goals.

This is supported by our extensive range of formal and informal development opportunities. Career progression routes for Centre Support Assistants include Supervisory roles in one of our Hospitality or Support Team Departments.

Staff Package

PGL offer a competitive wage along with an industry leading food and accommodation package for residential roles.

Your wage will be dependent on a range of factors such as age, role, location, hours of work, qualifications and experience.
